The Salt Lake ColdFusion Users Group

The Salt Lake ColdFusion Users Group is an official Adobe user group with the primary goal of improving the quality and efficiency of our web development.

We also like to have fun, so bring your game grin.

There are no membership fees, all kinds of refreshments, and frequently some pretty sweet items up for raffle that you can win just by showing up.

In our monthly get-togethers we explore a wide spectrum of topics from pure Adobe ColdFusion app development to how easily it can integrate and simplify rich functionality in other web technologies like AJAX, Flex, Flash, and AIR.

If you're a front-end developer that's been toying with the idea of learning some back-end skills, ColdFusion can do more with less than any of its competitors. In a week or two you can be developing full, dynamic, powerful web apps and back-ends that make your front-ends sing.

We usually meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 4:30 PM at the address below. Just show up, follow the signs, and help yourself to some food, drink, and mad skills.
