Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

What“One DAO to Rule Them All…!!”, with Wes Byrd

Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday June 2 will be “One DAO to Rule Them All…!!”, with Wes Byrd.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

The DADAO is a single CFC that will act as a Data Access Object (DAO) to any table in your database offering one place to Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) data from any table. Never create another DAO again! Never maintain your DAO’s again! Never write SQL in your code again! It changes when your database changes. It supports any database type (that ColdFusion will access via a configured datasource).

In this session, we will see some real world examples of this handy tool in action and have some general discussion on Data Access Objects in general.


DURATION: Approx. 1 hour

RECORDING: All meetings are recorded. The URL will be posted after meeting at

LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE “LOGIN AS GUEST” option, and USE YOUR NAME, but do NOT attempt to use your username/password or any Connect account. Just sign in as a guest.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it’s not mandatory and it’s not a commitment. But there’sno need to RSVP if you can’t make it let alone explain why you can’t. With over 2,500 members, no worries. 🙂

FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer. Note also the meeting-specific discussion area there at the bottom, in addition to the one-chance feedback feature on the right. Feel free to engage in discussions about the meeting topic.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here, you’ll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, “Add to my calendar”, which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That’s a default that has chosen, which I can’t change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
