Lansdowne Booked - Overflow Hotel Info

Hello everyone,

Lansdowne is officially booked solid! We would like to let you know about our overflow hotel for CFUnited. This year, the Holiday Inn Leesburg at Carradoc Hall will be able to accommodate our attendees.

The regular rates start at $109/night for advanced bookings. However, they offer discounts, depending on your affiliation. For example government rates start at $97/night.

Be careful though! The AAA discount and the state government discount have a higher nightly rate than the advanced bookings, so I suggest you book early to ensure the lowest rate!!

The Holiday Inn will also provide a shuttle service to the Lansdowne Resort, also to and from Dulles Airport.

Check out the Holiday Inn Leesburg and make your reservations!

New session by Intergral for CFUnited

Our Gold Sponsor, Intergral, has just released their topic for CFUnited 2010!

Charlie Arehart will be speaking on: Continuously Improve CF Code Quality, Server Availability & Application Stability.

When your CF servers are troubled, there are often a wide range of possible explanations, some code-oriented, some configuration, some load/traffic, and so on. To solve them, you need an equally broad range of diagnostic and analysis tools. Until recently, most CFers could turn to one or two common types of tools, but lacked coverage across the entire software solution lifecycle.

The Fusion product suite from Intergral offers just that: from improved code-level debugging tools (with features not available in CF Builder), to new and improved request/resource monitoring (with features that expand upon and go beyond the CF Server Monitor), to brand new server analytics tools, which allow you to analyze and compare server performance information across applications and over hours, days, weeks, months, and years.

Working in complement with, or instead of, built-in ColdFusion troubleshooting tools, come see how you can improve your complete CF environment across the whole software lifecycle.

This session is scheduled for Wednesday, July 28, 2010 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

Make sure you reserve your spot and add this topic to your scheduler if you wish to attend!
