I’ve been a regular at Western Australia’s ColdFusion User Group meetings since Brett Payne-Rhodes revived them in 2001 or so (waaaay to far back for me to remember). Two or so years ago Andrew Mercer took over as El Presidente and he’s been continuing Brett’s great work keeping the local ColdFusion community strong.
Adobe have recently revamped their user group program and one of the changes has been that managers have been asked to each nominate a co-manager, to help them with user group affairs. I’m honoured to have been asked to be the CFUGWA co-manager.
CFUGWA usually meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month, and lately most meetings have been held at Patersons Securities (where Andrew and fellow CF conspirator Mark Wheeler both work). Meeting details are posted on the CFUGWA web site (a FarCry CMS-driven site – with design and front end development by my guys at Clever Starfish and back end implementation by Andrew himself).
And, as extra confirmation on how much we all rock, the CFUGWA site has been shortlisted in the non-profit section of the 2008 WA Web Awards. We’ll be glamming it up on November 7 when the winners are announced at a gala awards dinner. Clever Starfish has two other finalists as well – so wish us luck!
