CFUNITED is hosting a set of Birds of a Feather at CFUNITED. These are more informal and casual meetings as opposed to the normal "Guy with Powerpoint" presentation. There a quite a few good ones. Here are a few I want to point out:
CFUnited BOF: AIR and Flex Fears Debunked - Andrew Powell talks about AIR and Flex specifically in terms of a ColdFusion developer.
Frameworks BOF - Joe Rinehart discusses frameworks. As the creator of Model-Glue, I'm sure this will be nice and unbiased. ;) (Just kidding Joe!)
I'm running a Birds of a Feather Wednesday night on 8 on open source development. This will be an discussion on how developers can move into the open source world.
