No stranger to putting on a song and dance, Geoff's been invited to speak at Allaire/Macromedia DevCons (1999 Boston, 2000 Washington and 2001 Orlando), InternetWorld, FlashKit and other venues. Sick of traipsing off to the US, Geoff and fellow Daemonites founded webDU and decided to have the world's best technology conference right here in the Antipodes.
Apart from all the hard yakka working for Daemon, Geoff's a regular poster to the Daemonite blog, one of the lead developers behind FarCry CMS , and Master of Full As A Goog. And in his freetime, he's a CFUG regular and the list-admin for CFAUSSIE, FUGLI and a host of other Australian mailing lists. Geoff's also the co-author of the best selling "ColdFusion Developer Study Guide".
