Ortus Sessions

  • Brad - Feedback from an attendee said it was one of the clearest and most organized presentation they had seen in a long time
  • Luis - Another packed room, AlpineJS is getting a lot of attention - maybe it will be the Javascript framework for CF going forward.
Ortus Booth
  • Lots of traffic at the booth
  • Lots of old friends
  • Lots of new contacts
  • Lots of praise from many devs, they were very thankful for what we were doing for CFML. The very cool part, a lot of those devs were using none or just a few of our products, but they were thankful because they knew it was helping the community at large!
