We are very proud to announce a new member of the Railo Technologies team; Michael Hnat!
Why don't we let him introduce himself:
Hello, My name is Michael Hnat and I am really delighted to be part of the Railo core team. I will be responsible for sales and customer support in Germany and Austria and I am already looking forward to this exciting role appointed to me by Railo Technologies.
In my younger days I already started programming on the legendary Commodore 64 and Amiga, and I have always tried to convert my hobby into a career.
At Siemens, I was trained as a software developer and was employed as a programmer for 4th Dimension.
After a few years I came into contact with Allaire ColdFusion (version 4 back then) the first time and knew instantly that this was the language I wanted to program with in the future.
In 1998 I started my own business and built many exciting projects with lots of interesting customers.
I switched to Railo Server with the first version and I remember a very interesting CFUG Germany meeting in the Schlosszelt in Munich where Railo Server was firstly presented officially to a group of CF programmers. Beside my programming tasks I started the hosting for several customers on Railo. It has definitely been the right decision.
At the CFCamp 2008 already several users tried Railo Server and were able to see a new version.
This year I organized the CFCamp Conference in Munich. A really great event with 100 people and very good sessions.
Taking over sales and support in Germany and Austria is a really exciting challenge for me since I now am able to sell what I believe in for a while now.
So if you are in Germany or Austria and you have any questions about Railo Server or how Railo Technologies can help you, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm really looking forward for my new role at Railo and hope you'll come and see us at the CFCamp 2012 or at a conference near you!

We just came back from MuraCon in Sacramento that took place last week on Thursday and Friday (25th & 26th of August). We were represented by a larger portion of the Railo team. Sean, Mark, Tanja, Denny & Gert were present there and we met several people from the community to talk to them about Railo, how they use it and what things they would like to have in the next version. We were very pleased to hear that almost everyone told us how happy they are with the speed of the execution and the easy update process.
We were able to sort some bugs out with Greg Moser from Slatwall, so that now Slatwall works fine with the latest version of Railo 3.3 (which is 3.3.0.027) and we saw the excitment about the shortly upcoming release. We had some very interesting conversations with Matt Levine from Blueriver about the clustering capabilities of Railo and on how easy it is to use the clustered cache and the session storage. Mark, Denny and Gert showed off some of the great features of Railo 3.3 and 4.0 with the first demo of Railo 4.0 Alpha (in this case the CLI).
Mark's and Gert's slides.
Thank you everyone for visiting us at our booth and talking to us about Railo and on the different aspects on how to use Mura in an enterprise clustered environment. And many thanks of course to Blueriver who organized this great first Mura conference.
We will definitely be back next year.

It is my great pleasure to announce a new Railo Technologies team member: Denny Valliant!
Denny is well known for his awesome contributions to the CFEclipse project as well as the most awesome cfdistro project.
Denny is joining the Railo Server Engineering team, to help out with the development of Railo Server as well as helping on a number of Railo Consultancy projects that we have underway.
Over the next few weeks I am sure the community will be very impressed with the strides we are making towards Railo 4.0 and with Denny on board, you can expect awesome developments coming out of Railo Technologies!
We think he is a great addition to our team!

I recently commented (read: complained) to Sean Corfield when he had just joined Railo that Railo's lack of documentation and pulling things together in one cohesive spot is really hurting. He brought the feedback to Railo team and he also put the ball in my court, "Are you volunteering?" I thought about it for a week before I finally agreed to. Railo is one of those projects I'd like to see succeed as I believe there's enough room for everyone. Railo is another very interesting tool in my vast web development toolbox. If you don't already know, there's a very active community growing on the Railo Google Groups ( http://groups.google.com/group/railo ) and documentation is also being looked at ( http://groups.google.com/group/railodocumentation ). I've already been pulling together a new FAQ section on getrailo.org and it's going to keep growing as we go along!
