cf.Objective Custom Tags Presentation

I had the high honor and great opportunity to speak at the most recent cf.Objective() conference.

If you haven't ever been to this conference, I would highly recommend it. This was the sixth year of the conference (my third) and it was fantastic all around. The other presentations were universally good (if not great). As always, I learned a lot - both in the presentations themselves and in conversations with other speakers and attendees.

For my part, I gave a presentation title "Don't Forget About Custom Tags", attempting to convince people that custom tags are still relevant and a great tool to have in your toolbox (and one which should be used frequently).

I zipped up the presentation (PowerPoint file and code) for anyone interested in seeing it.

I felt a bit more nervous than I expected, so I felt a little flat, but hopefully people enjoyed the presentation and I will get the opportunity again (I'll find out the answer to the first when I get the chance to read the reviews).

Thanks and congratulations to all of those responsible for putting on another great conference!

Steve, sorry I couldn't make it to your presentation. Custom tags are awesome :D

Great to see you again my man. See you next year.

It was a great presentation. One of the best two at the conference in my opinion (the other "top pick" was Nathan Strutz' Holistic Quality / Technical Debt talk). Awesome job Steve!

Steve, I love the speaker notes on your PPT, under the "Who am I" page, it reads "Remember, Steve. You aren’t that interesting. Move on." and overall your writing style is pretty funny. Well done, thanks for posting it.

Indeed, they are! I was, of course, partly inspired by your custom tags presentation a while back which I really enjoyed.


Thanks for the kind words. That is really an honor. I missed Nathan's presentation. Hopefully he will do it again soon on ColdFusion Meetup.


Thanks. I probably should have removed that before i published. I just felt I needed to remind myself that others might not find me as interesting as I do. ;-)

Are you going to present yours on ColdFusion Meetup for those of us that missed it?

Look forward to seeing all of you again next year!

Hmm... no promises. I hadn't planned on it, but I guess if you want it, and Sean liked it... yeah maybe.

Hmm, maybe I should review the notes in what I posted in case there's something I shouldn't be saying in public... :)
