CFMeetup this Thursday! "Living in the Cloud: CFML Apps on Google App Engine"

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday May 20 will be "Living in the Cloud: CFML Apps on Google App Engine", with Matt Woodward & Peter Farrell.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

If you want to take advantage of the power of cloud computing but want to focus on applications instead of server infrastructure, you owe it to yourself to check out Google App Engine. Google App Engine lets you deploy applications to Google's infrastructure with the push of a button, and the best part is that for many applications it's entirely free of cost.

In this presentation we'll discuss both the benefits and downsides of living in the cloud, outline how Google App Engine differs from other cloud solutions, and demonstrate how to build and deploy a simple CFML application to Google App Engine using Open BlueDragon, which is the only CFML engine compatible with Google App Engine.

If you're interested in running your CFML applications in the cloud come get in on the ground floor, because with a few simple tips and tricks, it's all clear skies.

Peter Farrell and I will be doing our OpenBD on Google App Engine presentation from cf.Objective() on the CFMeetup this Thursday at noon Eastern. See you there!
