Installing Adobe AIR on OpenSuSE using official repository

All modern Linux distributions have a concept of keeping themselves up to date with an online system of 'repositories' of applications that anyone can run.
Adobe have handily set one up for their AIR runtime, and provide instructions for RPM based systems that use 'yum' (like Fedora and RedHat) and DEB based systems that use 'apt' (like Ubuntu and Debian).
Although OpenSuSE can use yum, by default it has it's own 'zypper' system, but it can use the RPM repository anyway.

cloudy with a chance of caching and clustering

Mark Drew
Mark is always a popular speaker, and he started his talk with questions around what happens when your web site gets popular quickly ? As an example he used the ubiquitous country list dropdown box. Does this really need to be a query ? Obviously not (countries hardly ever change !) but does it really need the next normal solution, and Application scoped cache (or cachedWithin CFQUERY) ? You could use CFCACHE to cache the whole HTML fragment.

The Art of Emotional Design: A story of pleasure, joy, and delight.

Aral Balkan
Aral was a really engaging User Experience speaker who kicked of by talking about the always-current "Technology X is dead" conversation ; that conversation itself is dead. Cobol isn't dead. Adobe ColdFusion might be gone, but ColdFusion the language is a commodity - Railo proves this.
Skills are more important, as its your time you use :-)

A whistlestop tour of HTML5 and CSS3

Chris Mills (Opera)
I should have bumped into the speaker before now really, as he's from Manchester, but we'd never managed it :-)
Anyway, Chris started with a bit of history, namely that  HTML4 is not dead. It can't do some things like video, which is why Flash got started in the first place. One great quote was 'bullshit will HTML5 kill Flash'.
