First Timer's cf.Objective() 2011 - Part 1

I attended the cfObjective() conference for the first time. The conference was at Minneapolis, MN from May 12-14. The 3 day conference was great with a lot of sessions across different topics.
Here are some numbers from the conferene:
  • Days: 3
  • Sessions: 75
  • Speakers: 55
  • Atendees: ~315
  • Sessions at a time: 4-5
With so many sessions and only so much  time, there was a lot I missed; at the same time there was a lot that I learned. Many of the presenters have made their presentations available. So that will be good to check out the sessions that I missed. If you were not able to make it to the conference and would like to check out what you missed, head over to http://www.cfobjective.com/index.cfm/sessions/

You can see the sessions list and if you click over to a session's details, you will be able to see the link to the presentations/ slides/ codes from the session.

That said, here are a few things I learned and that I plan on using. I have clubbed these into categories for easy reference.

ColdFusion related tools:
Other Productivity Tools: These are manily from Jim Priest's talk on Developer Toolbox:
Jim also has many other alternatives to the above tools. For the full presentation, a pdf hand-out (with a list of other alternatives) and some code (mainly config for AutoHotKey, etc), download his presentation package from: http://thecrumb.com/download/cfo-2011-toolbox.zip

More learnings coming in Part 2 of the post.
