1. Have you spoken at CFUnited in the past?  What would you tell someone who hasn't been to CFUnited before?

Yup.  I've been speaking at CF United events for the last 4-5 years or so.  Lost count.  CFUN is cool because you get to hang out with all the movers and shakers in the industry.


2. Why should people attend your session(s)?

Why not?  I'll be showing an example of using Flex to talk to Google App Engine (GAE), so its just pretty darn cool.


3. Do you have any projects in the works that you will be revealing at CFUnited?

I'm hoping to have a brand new product ready to demo called FusionDox Access, which is a way cool easy way to share large files with people, and easily integrates into your web projects.  All build in Flex of course :)

4. Besides your topic, what other sessions are you looking forward to?

Flexy goodness, especially looking forward to Flex 4 graphics enhancements.

5. What are some of the hot topics you'd like to see at RoundTable discussions?

How to beat down the industry's impression that ColdFusion is dying.

6. Where can people find you at CFUnited?  (At the bar, networking, working, in your room, etc.)

Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes.  Also email me.  aschwabe(at)gmail(dot)com.


7. What's the latest news with you? Has anything changed since last CFUnited?

New version of FusionDox is coming out.  See <a href="http://www.fusiondox.com/blog/">http://www.fusiondox.com/blog/</a>


8. What is unique about CFUnited?

Everything is approachable at CFUN.  Talk to whoever, everybody is sincere about wanting to transfer knowledge so that everybody grows.

9. When you are not working what do you like to do in your free time?

Playing guitar, riding my motorcycle (bmw k100), going to the shooting range with the family, travel, eat, drink, being merry.

10. Feel free to make up your own question and then answer it.

Q: Why?  A: Because.

Making Macbook Air with 128GB SSD usable with Bootcamp

I recently got a new Macbook Air 11" (the 2012 version) and loaded it with goodies like 8GB ram and 2GHz Core i7.  What I DIDN'T upgrade was the internal SSD.  My config came with 128GB SSD and I refused to pay $300+ to upgrade it to 256GB.  Yeah I know, some call me cheap, but SSds cost $75-$150 for 240GB, so adding another 128GB for $300 seemed way too steep for me.  I figured "ok, I'm going to make 128G work!"

Here is the story of how that went...

Installing python 3.4.x on OSX El Capitan

I love "brew" package manager, but sometimes being too progressive breaks things.  I have several python apps that I maintain that get deployed to AWS using Elastic Beanstalk.  AWS eb can deploy with python 2.7 or 3.4.  Any recent 'brew install python3" will get 3.5.1. #annoying

Dell XPS M1330 + Snow Leopard Hackintosh

I have been working with a Dell XPS M1330 laptop for a few years now.  It doesn't quite match up to the newest notebooks in terms of performance, but it certainly still has some life in it.  I had previously installed OSX 10.5.x on it as an experiment, and had moderate success.  I decided to revisit this idea again to install Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6) on the Dell M1330, and keep some notes for those of you brave enough to Hackintosh your own machine...
