The cost of registration is just $99.00. One tip you learn could save your 10 times in this site downtime and unnecessary servers. The cost covers both the cost of lectures on ColdFusion Scalability and related topics from 12pm - 5pm and food, fun and drinks from 5pm - 10pm.
At this price we are sorry we can not offer refunds, but you may transfer your registration to a colleague at any time.

CF Can Scale!
by Ben Forta

Barely a day goes by without someone wanting me to reassure them that ColdFusion scales. Whether it's Web administrators who are experiencing poor application performance, partners who want to be sure ColdFusion can handle their anticipated load, developers whose bosses are threatening their jobs over failed deployments, or press and analysts positioning ColdFusion as a "low-end solution." Whichever it is, inevitably I end up in the position of defending ColdFusion and its scalability.
