Live in the greater DC area? Planning a trip to Our Nation's Capital for July 4th weekend? Why not stop by CFUNITED and see what the Project Aardvark interns are up to?

CFUNITED is the ColdFusion developers conference, which is going to be held just outside of DC at the Bethesda North Marriott, also known as the Montgomery County Conference Center, next week, from June 29-July 1. I'll be giving the keynote speech on Wednesday and also doing a session on The Joel Test on Thursday.

On Wednesday and Thursday, in the Fog Creek booth, the Aardvarks will be doing the first public demos of their product, SidePilot. Yep, it's basically working, although still rather unpolished. If you're a Joel on Software reader you can register FREE for an "exhibit only" pass to come see the demo.

The Fog Creek booth will be open:

Wednesday, June 29
9:30am - 1:00pm and 2:00pm - 7:00pm

Thursday June 30
9:30am - 10:50am and 11:50am - 5:45pm

I'll be there, too, and so will Brett, one of the FogBugz developers, so if you'd like to talk in person to someone about FogBugz here's your chance..

To register for CFUNITED:

  • If you just want a free pass to the exhibit area, use code X3545, Visa card 4444, expiration date 11/11.
  • For the full conference use code S1515089 to get a $50 discount
  • In either case write "Joel on Software Reader" in the comments section

See you there!

Have you been wondering about Distributed Version Control? It has been a huge productivity boon for us, so I wrote Hg Init, a Mercurial tutorial—check it out!
