As you may have heard by now, the Adobe CF Developer Week 2021 will be held June 22-24, and my session (on June 22, at 4p Central in Track 2) will be:
ColdFusion at 25: not the kid most have stuck in their minds
While currently the DevWeek site does not offer session descriptions, I do have mine posted on my presentations page, but here it is for you:
As ColdFusion turns 26 next month, many seem stuck remembering it only as the “teen” they knew or even the “child”, when instead it’s grown up to be a capable “adult”, impressive in many ways, and even more so recently. In this session, we’ll look back at how CF has indeed evolved into a very capable platform, with quite modern features that seem to surprise many–including people working with it currently. If you struggle “finding CF people” or “getting buy-in”, perhaps these observations could help you with both challenges. If nothing else, they’re things designed simply to help you get your job done, while keeping up with modern practices.
We’ll start with many modern coding techniques–which will be familiar to those using more “modern” languages but that many don’t realize CF supports, and may have for years. We’ll then look at ways that things such as CF installation/deployment, configuration/administration, monitoring, security, and more have improved over the years. And we’ll look not only at CF itself but the community surrounding it, ranging from resources for help and learning to tools and services that others have created, making CF a far more complete ecosystem than most give it credit. Put another way: it’s not your father’s CF!
I look forward to presenting this topic and hope you’ll come check it out.
