First off, let's talk about the new contest for cf.Objective() (May 3-6, 2007 in Minneapolis, MN)
- Two passes to give away. One on the March 12th podcast and one on the April 9th podcast
- Works just like the CFUnited giveaways -- you need the entry code, so listen to the podcast for this week's code!
Now that frameworks is over, CFUnited is peeking its head.
- Just remember that early bird (not the early early bird that we had in Jan) pricing ends on 3/31. Just something to think about if you are getting work to pay for it.
