Charlie Arehart
"CFMX Hidden Gems"
You've probably heard about some of the major new features in CFMX. Things such as ColdFusion Components, support for web services, native XML processing, increased integration with Flash have been talked about even before the product has been released. But there are a lot of smaller, and sometimes important new features that can really add dramatically to your programming capability and what you can do with CFMX. In this seminar, veteran CFUG speaker and CFDJ columnist Charlie Arehart will outline several of these hidden gems. He's been doing this sort of thing for each release since 4.01. Come learn what many only ever learn in his seminars and articles.

"Web Services and CF: Demystifying web services and service architectures"
ColdFusion MX allows developers to simply work with XML as well as publish components as WebServices using SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI.
