We have made significant progress from the time we announced the education initiative for ColdFusion. A full-fledged curriculum titled Introduction to Web Development is being developed and we are looking to work with the colleges starting this fall semester. The course will be made available for free with enough focus on web application design, client side and server side development in an effort to give the students a holistic view to web programming.
Here's the link to the presentation that highlights our goals, approach and the next steps to make the initiative successful.
The ask now from all the ColdFusion enthusiasts is to help promote this new course offering. It could be a promotion by you at your local college or it could be any contact at a college that you would like Adobe to reach out to.
You can either use the slide deck to present about the initiative or use the content as talking points to promote the curriculum.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions/concerns or contacts that Adobe can reach out to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Before I get to this topic, I would like to thank Tim Cunningham, Dan Wilson, Jason Dean for volunteering to be a part of the content committee of the ColdFusion Summit. From the Adobe side, we have Ray Camden, Hemant Khandelwal, Kishore Balakrishnan and I on the content committee for the summit.
Tim Cunningham has put to get together a Trello board where you can vote, comment and suggest topics for the ColdFusion Summit. The Trello Board will be open only till the 21st of June. So not a lot of time remaining before you can make your opinion count.
Here's what Tim has to say about the Trello board.
What kind of content would you like to see at the Official Adobe ColdFusion Summit this year October 24, 25 in Las Vegas? Vote and make suggestions now.
To track what type content you want to see, join this public Trello board. You will need a free trello account to vote and comment on the board. I have, what I think, is a good mix of topics. Please help me fill in the gaps by commenting on the "Suggest Topic" card and please help decide what topics are most popular by voting on all the topics you like. If you have suggestions for what kind of content you would like to see on a particular session, please comment on that topic card.
Things to keep in mind:
• Sessions should be Adobe ColdFusion centered, but can incorporate related technology.
• Target audience should be assumed to have a basic working knowledge of ColdFusion. 2 year CF programmer - all the way up to grizzled code veteran.
• We want a mix of intermediate (tagged green) and advanced topics (tagged yellow)
• We would like to where possible have topics build on each other but given by different speakers (ORM advanced follows immediately after ORM 101)
• Vote for topics that *YOU* would truly attend if possible.
