I have been invited to speak at CF United Express in NYC on 4/20/09

Thanks to Liz Frederick and the CF United team for their invitation!

I will be presenting on "Charting with ColdFusion and Flex" and will go through step by step on how to build charts using Flex's charting package.  In addition, we will go over how to build a reusable chart project where you can use the Flex/Ajax bridge to push chart data into your Flex app using Javascript/JSON/etc.
