Ezra Parker has been developing with ColdFusion since 2000, starting with version 4. Ezra currently serves as the Associate Director for the Model-Glue framework and is the Co-Manager of the Inland Empire ColdFusionUser Group.
If you attend Ezra’s cf.Objective() 2010 session at 11:30a on April 23, you will benefit from a wealth of knowledge pertaining to building RIAs with jQuery UI and jqGrid.
The description promises a very interesting session:
Alagad was lucky to snag Ezra as a full time developer earlier this year. He thinks it was for his fine programming prowess, but in actuality it was the Shuffleboard skills he demonstrated at last year’s CFUnited.
What else does Ezra do when he’s not devoting his spare time to CFUGs and frameworks? Lots of things!
Ezra is an avid nature enthusiast. He and his lovely wife do a fair amount of birdwatching and nature themed photography.
He also loves various forms of SciFi and Fantasy entertainment. His favorite author is George R.R. Martin. Lately, Ezra has taken a liking to Joss Whedon’s sadly defunct Firefly TV series. (Anyone who knows me knows I was thrilled to learn we had a love of Firefly in common!) This year, he toted a couple of replicas of t-shirts worn by Jayne Cobb to the conference with him, and there are more where those came from…

A man of many talents and hobbies, Ezra is surely someone you will want to track down at cf.Objective() this year!
