CFUnited Tips

What you can do to improve your career and what's the next step?

CFUnited Tip #1: Subscribe to our blog

http://cfunited.com/blog We like to post news related to Adobe, ColdFusion, Flex, AIR, and other community information. If you have something you'd like to share with the community we can post it on our blog. Plus we giveaway free stuff all the time. We announce news about events, topics, and speakers every week.

CFUnited Tip #2: Look at the tracks and ask yourself what direction should your career be going.

If there are at least 15 topics you should be learning, you have an obligation to yourself to stay ahead. CFUnited Tracks

CFUnited Tip #3: Make money from what you'll learn

Attending the event can pay for itself. We are positive that the skills you obtain at CFUnited can be used the next day. You can let your clients know you'll be offering new enhancements to improve their websites soon.

CFUnited Tip #4: Follow us and our speakers on twitter.

Twitter has been effective to some. We recommend it so when you attend CFUnited you can use it as a tool to connect with others. http://twitter.com/cfunited/

CFUnited Tip #5: Prepare ahead.

If you plan on attending, make sure you have a plan of action. Arrive at Dulles if by plane, take the FREE shuttle to the hotel. Make sure you book a room early, we will sell out months before the main event. http://cfunited.com/go/travel/

Missed Early Bird?

The First early bird ended Dec 31st at midnight.

You might have been thinking that the price was so perfectly low but you weren't ready.

So maybe if you contact me we can work out a deal to get you that rate.

Some ideas:

Volunteer to do some code

Help promote the conference

Donate your time to fold/ stuff mailers

Help find sponsors

I'm leaving this opportunity open for about a week. So contact me soon and I'll see what we can do. Thanks for the early support!

liz (at) cfunited (dot) com

Groups of 3 or more. We want to make you an offer

For groups of 3 or more we have a 10% discount. However, if you really want to send more people from your company I'm willing to make you a deal of a lifetime for registering early.

CFUnited is running on its own income and we want to bring the best event we can by reserving the best vendors and lock in the lowest deals for our attendees. To do this we create Early bird rates for those who want to save big and help with our early deposits.

If you are willing to help, we may just be willing to make an offer. Same with Sponsorships.

Thanks for the early support! Contact me this week to get an offer.
