Upcoming Macrochats – CF/Verity and Flash Video

If you’ve got some free time to sharpen your skillsets a bit, there are two free public Macrochats on Verity in ColdFusion MX 7 (tomorrow) and Flash Video bandwidth detection and scaling (next Tuesday) coming up you might want to catch. Note: pre-registration is required for both, links to follow.

  • Verity for Fast Searching
    Wednesday, August 17, 2005 – TOMORROW!
    12:00 PM – 1:00 PM US/Eastern

    Ray Camden of Mindseye, Inc. will talk you through the updates to the Verity search engine in ColdFusion MX 7, and ways you can leverage it on your own content. Read up on the docs ahead of time here (as this Macrochat assumes a baseline knowledge of Verity), and when you’re ready, hit this link to register.

  • Flash Video Bandwidth Detection and Scaling
    Tuesday, August 23, 2005
    5:00 PM – 6:00 PM US/Eastern

    New Toronto Group’s Kevin Towes will show you how to detect a user’s bandwidth using the Macromedia Flash Video Streaming Service, and both scale bandwidth during playback and switch to alternate video encoding. Interested? Then bang your mouse here to register.
