Powered by Detroit , Dearborn, MI (April 10, 2005)
Powered by Detroit was the first ColdFusion/Flash conference in the Greater Detroit area with about 150 attendees from all over. I attended day two (Sunday) and presented a general session on CFMX7, and then took part in a panel along with Mike Dinowitz and Simon Horwith. Thanks to Cornel Ivanescu and crew for pulling the event together, the attendees I spoke to were all very pleased with the event and look forward to a repeat next year. So, all in all a great event. With one gotcha. Cornel and his wife, in an attempt to embarrass me, had me enter the hall in a Hummer (yes, a Hummer) that was pushed (yes, pushed) by the user group managers. When the Hummer doors opened out jumped two Hooters girls (yes, Hooters girls) who followed me on to the stage and then hurled t-shirts to the audience. And yes, lots of attendees had cameras. Oh, the things I do for the community. ;-) Thanks to Nick Kwiatkowski for the pics.
