I have re-submitted my topic (you can find it under the "Please choose 4 from the list of topics that cover OO" section) from last year as it was well received and attended, and I'm hoping to make this year's presentation even better, so please head on over to the survey and voice your opinion and hopefully vote for my as well. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Leveraging Basic Object Oriented Concepts and Design Patterns in ColdFusion - Phill Nacelli
This session will introduce you to the basic concepts of object oriented development along with some basic design patterns by looking at real world code examples. Today's ColdFusion developers are bombarded by complex terms such as Singletons, Facades, Data Access Objects(DAOs) and other design patterns, making it hard for the novice to understand these valuable concepts without looking at actual code. This session will demystify those terms and give you the basic knowledge needed to build a foundation into the real advantages of Object Oriented programming.
