Yesterday evening was the launch event of the ColdFusion User Group Belgium, a community initiative led by Steven Peeters and Cyril Hanquez, at the Adobe offices in Brussels. I did not know what to expect since ColdFusion users in Belgium were never very outspoken about their favorite technology and it almost seemed like interest was dying out. Nonetheless there was a really good turnout and lots of ideas shared for topics to cover in upcoming meetings.

There were interesting presentations by Marta Gal about "XML import/export with ColdFusion" and Claude Englebert on ColdFusion Builder followed by Q&A and some networking between the attendees.

The next meeting is scheduled for May 26th (right after Scotch on the Rocks) with speakers including Ben Nadel and Ray Camden as well as several members of the ColdFusion team. Not to be missed!
