Charlie Arehart of Online ColdFusion Meetup fame piped up on the ColdFusion United blog to ask if there would be an open mic night by the pool this year. With that, a thread slowly but surely came to pass and the Thursday night CFMicUp is born!
I’ve volunteered to keep a list of all those willing to perform. If you will be attending the conference and wish to participate, please either respond to the thread on the CFUnited blog, or respond here using the Contribute Content form. Either is fine, though here might be quicker. As you can imagine, the CFUnited staff is slammed and likely can’t be moderating posts 100% of the time.
It looks like anything goes! Live musical performances, karaoke, standup comedy, etc. There is a good list of gear already being provided, but there is room for more. We need some kind of drums and a bass. Any other instrument you want to bring? Would be cool to have a sax!
I’ve involved myself a lot in the conference this year. My incoming work is flexible, I am local, and I am in the mood to help out and have some fun. When something music related ultimately presented itself, how could I resist? Please join me and participate in this and anything else you can to make what I’m sure the staff is already assuring will be the best CFUnited ever. Notice that there are special Guest Packages that are affordable and offer you access to everything but the sessions. While the sessions are of utmost importance, you can’t go wrong with signing up for a Guest Pass if this is more affordable for you. Networking, Fun, & Friends. Bring your resume, bring your Vuvuzela, bring yourself! (Ok, please pick any other instrument..)
