On May 3 I'll be packing my bags and trekking north from New York to Toronto to participate in CF North, the only Canadian developer's conference for ColdFusion. A large chunk of the ColdFusion world will be heading up that way with me, both those in the area and those elsewhere looking to network between now and the Macromedia DevCon this fall. It's a worthwhile event - enough for me to leave my new dog at home. (Say Hi to Max, the world's cutest pug and the first dog determined to learn CFML.) Taking place at the Toronto Eaton Centre Marriott Hotel on May 4-5, the event will consist of 40 high-quality CF sessions on a wide variety of topics. The conference has been smartly divided into the following five tracks to make scheduling easier throughout the intense two-day period: ColdFusion Bootcamp, Best Practices, Geek Out: Advanced Technologies, Flash and ColdFusion,...

In 1984 Bruce cofounded Gupta Technology (renamed Centura Software), where he provided database technology leadership for over 10 years. Most recently, Bruce was a founder and principal at inquiry.com. WBT: Tell us about the vision you had when you founded PointBase. What was it... (more)

Wireless: Anytime, Anywhere?

I'm writing this month's editorial from the show floor at the CTIA Wireless 2001 Global Conference in Las Vegas where everyone who's anyone in the unwired world has come together for three short days to talk, showcase, and learn about everything wireless. Also worth mentioning is the unbelievable amount of networking that's occurred at the show, off the beaten path. Several companies, as you'll be hearing in the next few months, forged new partnerships through discussions over dinner, while on line for the overpriced show food, and around the floor. Stay tuned for coverage of tho... (more)
