We're excited to be there, and look forward to interacting with our most loyal and passionate customers. There will likely be a large government customer base there as well, given this years' location, so we also look forward to meeting with our US government customers, gathering your feedback and internalizing it as we move forward on the next version of ColdFusion.
Some key folks from the ColdFusion team will be there, including Tim Buntel, Dean Harmon, Tom Jordahl, Mike Nimer, Bill Sahlas, Bob Powell, Hemant Khandelwal, and myself, along with other Macromedians (including Christian Cantrell and Sean Corfield, Steven Erat and others).
CFUNITED (formerly CFUN) is really the premier ColdFusion-specific event outside of Macromedia's own MAX event, and attendance this year is expected to be very good, with CFMX 7 out and so much to discuss, learn and talk about.
ColdFusion also officially turns 10 years old this summer...I heard a rumor there might be something else very exciting worth celebrating as well...stay tuned, and be sure to get to CFUNITED-05!
