Elliott Sprehn- Scalable and Creative Algorithms

Vunderkind, Elliott Sprehn teaches you that even if you are as smart as him (doubtful) you should trust the ColdFusion Library to help you do you work in a creative and scalable way.

Ray Camden-Air and Ajax

The CFJedimaster unleashes the power of the darkside on Air and Ajax. Note: There is very little coldfusion in this preso, it covers the basics of Flex and Air throwing some JQuery on the browser side to handle things. Still very interesting, and you get a cool hangman game to play with your 6 year old.

Elliot Sprehn- I bet you did't know you could do that with Coldfusion

Elliot Sprehn is a fraking genius.  Don't take my word for it Ben Nadel was sitting next to me, he called him a "mad scientist."  If you only view one view one video from CFUnited 2010, this should be it.

Jason Dean - Ajax Security
Jason Dean - Ajax Security

In classic  pop-art style Jason Dean gives us an excellent primer on Ajax Security.

With the introduction of Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) over the last several years, it seems that everyone is jumping on the RIA bandwagon. But is any thought being given to what might need to be done to ensure that our Web 2.0 applications are secure? Or are they are not introducing new vulnerabilities into existing applications? In this presentation, we will look at some of the security issues that can arise from introducing Ajax into your applications and about how to mitigate the risks of opening up remote services for Ajax.

+1 to those who can tell who the Club owner photo is.

Song- The Day CFUnited Died
Song- The Day CFUnited Died

When I heard that this would be the last CFUnited promoted by Michael Smith and Terratech,  I knew I had to do something special.  My new friend Michael Evangelista has a band out in Utah that does some awesome music.  The song American Pie by Don McLean sprang to mind, it is long rambling, has great chorus that everbody knows.  Once I came up with the chorus Michael and I collaborated on all the versus via twitter.  It seem to go over pretty well and taken in the good natured humor that it was intended.

Pete Freitag - Writing Secure CFML

Ask any hacker and they will tell you not to go to this presentation. They want nothing more than for you to continue coding away blissfully unaware of the vulnerabilities that they will use to steal the data and identity of you, your customers and coworkers. The truth is web application vulnerabilities are much easier to exploit than a buffer overflow, or cryptographic weakness. We'll cover several common yet dangerous vulnerabilities, and offer tips and tricks to protect your applications from these vulnerabilities.
