An interview and roundtable podcast where we talk about all things ColdFusion and CFML.

CFConversations 16, Interview 11 - Josh Adams - 09/30/08

Due to some audio problems on the six year-old Dell Optiplex SX260 that I'm now using to produce the podcasts, episode 16 was delayed, but I finally got it out without crashing! :( Unfortunately, I can't afford to buy a new computer right now, so I have to make due. If you're tired of me complaining, a gift card from my Amazon wishlist would help me finally get some decent hardware or you can donate via Paypal.

This is our eleventh interview, and the first with an Adobe person in the hot seat! On day four of CFUnited, I sat down with Josh Adams. Josh is a Systems Engineer with Adobe, specializing in ColdFusion.Before that, Josh worked in a similar position at New Atlanta and, before that, was the Atlanta CFUG manager. During this interview, we talk about working for Adobe, his time at New Atlanta, user groups (a passion Josh and I both share), open source CFML and the initiatives surrounding CF9.

Run time: 30:12

Speaking of ColdFusion and Flex being built to work together here is a adobe recording with a basic overview of how easy it it to get CF to talk to flex and vice versa

dell optiplex? those are pretty good systems, do you need more RAM or somethign? Maybe someone reading here can find some extra to send you, that might make it run faster (and cheaper than a whole new box!)

Also, keep up the good work. I do have a request, can you have a "framework roundup" or something, maybe interview some people, see what's going on in the framework world? I don't think that's been done yet.

Very good suggestion, Brock. Someone else had made it before you, and it was an idea I had myself. All I can tell you is... we're working on it.

About the Dell Optiplex, it's six years old and it's basically rebuilt on spare parts. I've decked it out with as much RAM as I could put in it (thanks to a couple of Amazon gift cards), traded out CPUs from scrap parts, and put in a spare hard drive, but it's unstable, especially when it comes to audio recording, and I've had a couple of bad crashes. Unfortunately, in order to do the work I need to do, this machine isn't quite enough. I'll labor along until I can get something else, and I have no choice but to do the next round of interviews with it, but I hope I can get something better soon. Unfortunately, I can't afford it right now.

What is the song you use during the intro of the recording?
