I was in New York last week for Flashforward 2003, and I was really impressed with the number of ColdFusion developers who were there. I did a session on integrating Flash MX and ColdFusion MX using Flash Remoting, which I have done versions of at two other Flashforward conferences, and this was by far the biggest audience with the best questions that I have had yet. I was also glad to see that the audience was not just made up of ColdFusion developers who are learning Flash, but there were also a lot of Flash developers learning ColdFusion. Flash Remoting has really opened up a lot of doors for all kinds of developers.
