Now that the holidays are over and the new CFUG season begins, we thought we’d do something different this time. This edition will not solely focus on ColdFusion technology, but will bring you technology and techniques that will bring the skills of a software developer, teacher, project manager etc. to a higher level.
|Adobe Captivate for web developersAdobe Captivate is a rapid eLearning authoring tool made by the same Indian Business unit as ColdFusion. The primary target audience of Captivate are teachers, instructional designers and eLearning developers. But other persons can find Captivate highly interesting as well.
In this session, we will explore how Adobe Captivate and other eLearning tools from Adobe might help web developers like you better communicate with your customer and final users.
The Screen Capture engine of Captivate combined with its unique interactive capabilities will enable you to create YouTube-like screencasts and interactive simulations that will definitely have a huge impact on how you communicate the ins and outs of your applications to your customers and final users.
Best of all, the all new Captivate 7 is now able to publish your content as an HTML 5 web app, effectively making mobile users part of the game!

|Applying Lean Thinking to software development
Lean has been around for a very long time in the manufacturing industry. But in the last couple of years it has been gaining momentum in the service industry as well. In this session you’ll discover how to apply these manufacturing principles (rhythm wheels, reducing waste and setup time etc.) to a software environment, so the IT department can reap the benefits of Lean Thinking as well and you can get your development cycle lean and mean.
