As a few people have blogged, there will be a BOF (Birds of a Feather) session about the Model-Glue framework on Wednesday at CFUnited. The session, which starts at 9pm on Wednesday, will consist of a half hour pannel discussion followed by a half hour Breeze Live presentation by Joe Rinehart. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I have been invited to sit on the pannel. As of now, it looks like the pannel will consist of myself, Joe Rinehart, Jared Rypka-Hauer and (if he agrees to it) Sean Corfield.
Here’s my guess is that the frirst question will be, "Is Mach-II dead?" I’ve already made my opinion clear on this.
If you’re at all interested in the Model-Glue framework, I strongly suggest attending. As as a bit a teaser, I think Joe may be making an announcement…

I really hope that the BOF doesn’t turn into a debate on whether or not Mach-II is dead, and instead focuses on usng Mach-II. There are going to be a lot of great people at CFUNITED this year, and it would be a real shame to waste such an opportunity with what I (and a lot of others) see as a relatively pointless debate.
I feel like an idiot. I had the wrong title on this entry. Oh well. The title has been corrected.
Well in that case, I hope it doesn’t turn into a Mach-II vs. Model-Glue debate 😉
I suspect there will be some talk to that extent. I don’t think developers can help themselves. As someone who will be sitting on the pannel I’ll try to make it clear that both are viable and that everyone should learn both and choose whichever they prefer.
I mean, the real point isn’t in using the coolest toy, but producing better and more mantainable code.
"if he agrees to it"? I wasn’t aware I had even been asked 🙂
But, sure, I’ll be there and I’ll be only too happy to be on the panel.
There’s bound to be some pros / cons discussion but as Doug says, this should really be considered an informative session about a new framework that is not really being covered otherwise at CFUNITED (I decided to stick to my guns about my frameworks talk and only mention Model-Glue in the notes for folks who download the PPT).
