Even more speakers - and Kai wins!

September 22nd, 2011

This is another episode in which Mark and I are talking to some of the speakers that are going to attend and present at cf.Objective(ANZ) + Flex this year. Today we're discussing a variety of topics: General concepts and pros/cons of version control (Dennis Clark), Test-driven development for ColdFusion developers using MXUnit (Gavin Baumanis) and task-oriented workflows within Flash Builder and ColdFusion Builder (Mike Henke).

As usual it came to a lot of spin-off threads such as why Subversion is still relevant (Gavin is the Patch Manager for the Subversion project), how the Farcry guys work when it comes to version control and why they still use Subversion and some other bit and pieces. One interesting project to link to would be the Ant4CF library, a set of ANT tasks to use together with ColdFusion.

Finally, I won. After being introduced by Mark as "intellectual" this time (first small win), I won our bet that we had more than 2 US-based listeners. A lot of comments on the Episode 12 blog post proved my point and also proved that Mark clearly can't count :)
