Well, I finally did it. After several rejections (and to be quite honest mediocre topics on my part), I finally landed my first speaking gig thanks to the folks at NCDevCon. I promise you, if you attend my session, you won't be disappointed. My session is directly after lunch, so if I don't make it a good one I'm sure I'll have a room full of sleepy heads.
My session is titled "Keeping in Sync - Synchronizing client / remote databases in Adobe AIR". One of the very first things I found facinating about AIR, back when it was Apollo, was the built in SQLite database and the ability to push and pull information to and from other databases using Flash Remoting. I was able to utilize this functionality in a prototype AIR application I wrote for the United States Marine Corps. I do mostly ColdFusion at my current job, but I try my best to keep up with advancements in Flex and AIR development on my own time so I can stay fresh. The point of this session is to share with my colleagues how simple it really is to keep a remote database and client database synchronized with some of the great tools built right into AIR and ColdFusion 9. Terry Ryan did a very similar presentation at last year's CFUnited during his keynote. My goal is the same as his, to show how simple it really is to utilize this functionality in your own projects.
Hopefully I'll see you there! If not, I'm sure the sessions will be recorded or the slides will be posted after the conference. Come on down to NCDevCon and join in the fun!
