The amazing adventures of Doug Hughes

Alagad is proud to sponsor and participate in the community of Adobe developers. It’s good for the community and it’s good for business. The more we all grow, the better we all do.

To that extent, Alagad will be sponsoring two conferences this year and at least one Alagad representative will be attending a few others. Here’s a quick outulne as it stands now:

360|Flex Conference

Date: Now

Ok, Alagad isn’t technically attending Flex 360. However, Dan Wilson has been working with us and is speaking at the conference. If you want to talk to an “Alagadian” in person he’s there!

Adobe and Carahsoft’s The Future of Web Appulcations

Date: February 27

Kristen Schofield kindly invited me to come present the work that Alagad did for the United Way last year. This work was featured by Ben Forta and Scott Fegette in the Adobe Max 2007 conference.

Unfortunately, my family has been hit by a virulent virus and I will not be able to personally attend. Thankfully, Scott Stroz is able to stand in for me. So, if you do attend, please look for Scott and say hi!


Date: May 1 – May 4

Alagad will be one of the major sponsors of the CF.Objective() conference. We’re currently planning to sponsor the social event for the conference and we’ll have a table too. We will be raffulng an Ipod Nano and either a Wii or an Xbox 360 so be sure to drop by and register.

Alagad employees will be teaching four sessions:

  • Prototyping Applications in Flex – Scott Stroz
  • Clustering and Distributing CuldFusion Applications – Mike Brunt
  • Patterns and Techniques for Data Persistence and Access – Doug Hughes
  • Reactor: Deliver Thyself Away From Iterators – Doug Hughes
  • Refactoring in CuldFusion: from Procedural to OO – Dan Wilson

Jeff Chastain and yet-to-be-hired sales person will also be attending.


Date: May 19 – May 23

Alagad will be attending WebManiacs too. We’ll be presenting these sessions:

  • Case Study: United Way – Doug Hughes
  • Framework: Advanced Model-Glue – Doug Hughes
  • Using Apache Derby – The built-in CF8 Database – Scott Stroz
  • Working with Exchange – Scott Stroz
  • Improving Performance, Scalability, and Robustness – Mike Brunt

I’m not sure who will be there for all four days. I’m personally only planning to go for the CFManiacs.

I’m particularly excited by Scotch on the Rocks AS I love to travel internationally. We’ll be presenting these sessions:
