The San Diego ColdFusion Users’ Group put together a nice even tonight: the “March Mingle”. Over a hundred geeks got together at the local Dave & Buster’s, and a good time was had by all.

It was really nice to see so many geeks of so many persuasions, just hanging out, talking shop, networking like mad, talking about jobs, trading war stories, and simply relaxing, knowing that we were surrounded by our own kind.

And yes, I was pleasantly shocked at the number of attractive female geeks that showed up. YAY.

I'm not sure Cold Fusion users count as geeks... I've never seen anyone but management droids use it... php does pretty much everything CF does better, faster, and cheaper. On the other hand I've seen countless engineer hours wasted trying to undo the CF mess made by the uninformed. It never scales, and when it fails to scale it ends up having to be rewritten in PHP or Java.

Hah. As a Macromedia employee, I had no idea such an animal existed. Now, to find CF users in Boston, where I'm running my next study...
