We're currently at about 90 submissions but we can happily deal with more. Particular areas where we are a bit low on submissions are:

- IDEs and editors for CFML
- Analytics (e.g. Data Science, Customers Behaviour)
- Company culture and Agile/Lean approaches (e.g. Working with others, Scrum, Kanban etc)
- Continuous integration and build pipelines
- Crash Reporting and Application Performance Monitoring
- Security (on the server as well as in your application)

That doesn't mean we don't have any submissions for the topic above so far, but more would be great.

We *do* have quite a lot of submissions for JS-related topics. That doesn't mean that if you have a great idea to not submit it. But - there's quite a bit of competition out there for these kind of talks.

Want to submit a talk - how about doing it NOW:

Storing and Using DateTimeOffsets in Lucee

Ben Nadel - @BenNadel
I am loving that #Lucee #CFML 5.3 allows me to dynamically load #Java libraries using the createObject() function. My understanding is that this replaced the traditional JavaLoader project with native support for dynamic class loaders. http://bjam.in/lucee-create-object …

I was adding a feature to CommandBox CLI this week when I typed up some code that iterated over the keys in a struct, filtering out the ones it needed and then performed an action on the matching ones.  I used the functional methods structFilter() and structEach() in CFML.  They are an example of functional programming as they accept functions as input.  This also means we can call them "higher order" functions.  But termininologo aside, I typed up the same code using an older interactive approach just to compare the two.  It was an interesting and rather self contained example so I thought I'd share it as a real life use case for FP (functional programming).

Look, I write in CFScript. Most of the CF devs I look up to write in CFScript. But maybe you don't. Here's where I convince you CFScript is worth the jump and, for that matter, just how to "jump" to CFScript.
