I don't think I've blogged this yet but a blog entry from Dan Wilson earlier today reminded me I needed to mention it. Dan, and others, are running a 100% free ColdFusion/Flex/AIR/etc conference in North Carolina. NCDevCon will be held May 22-23rd at the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. I missed last year's CFinNC, and unfortunately I'll be missing this one (speaking at SOTR), but I've heard nothing but praise about CFinNC, and heck, you can't beat free.
I wanted to specifically mention this today though because of the blog entry Dan wrote earlier today. The conference is getting quite a bit of interest from folks who are new to ColdFusion, but the majority of speaker submissions are on advanced topics. NCDevCon is in need of speakers who can cover introductory/basic ColdFusion topics. Folks, if you are in the area and can make it, it is time to step up and help spread the ColdFusion gospel to the uninitiated! Anyone, with patience and practice, can do a basic presentation.
