A little while ago we had a Mura site (which has recently been upgraded to Masa) with a bunch of blog articles and other content where the "Release Date" field was left empty by accident.
A few weeks ago was the annual ColdFusion Summit in Las Vegas. And as expected, the event was very worth the trip! Overall I think everything ran very smoothly — food, sessions, staff, the party, and all the other things you'd expect at CF Summit were the same quality as previous years.
A code-review of sorts where we go over some of the real-world situations when things just don't go the way the Stack Overflow Gods say they should. We'll look at the pros and cons of solutions in these situations and the lessons hopefully learned along the way.
Two of the most powerful features in Mura 7 are the improvements made to Mura ORM and the Feed API.
You can literally write a Mura plugin using any flavor of ColdFusion you want (Model-Glue, spaghetti code, whatever).
DI/1 is gaining in popularity, ColdSpring 2 has been quasi-available for a while now too. But do newbies know what they are and when/why to use them? Let's do an intro to the concept of "dependency injection" and see how both ColdSpring and DI/1 handle this facet of development.
Tired of having to make "delete", "edit", "new", "save", "confirm", and "purchase" icons for your clients? In 3 different sizes (desktop, tablet, mobile)? And new versions for each color scheme you use? Enter Font Awesome! Font Awesom...
By now we're all familiar with the basics of HTML5 -- new tags for sections of a web page, new form elements, and so on.
Dependency Injection is a very common pattern used in modern web development.
Object Oriented Programming with CFComponents is definitely the direction most development is headed. But before jumping into OO territory, there is still a lot of modularity and code re-use that can be done with just a few tags - CFInclude, CFModule, Custom Tags and CFFunction.
I saw this question posted on a ColdFusion forum the other day: "Are there any serious, open full-time ColdFusion positions outside government contracts out there? Preferrably WFH.
Hi, I'm Nolan. My team is building a brand new ColdBox 6 app from scratch. We're using Docker, AWS, CommandBox, GitHub Actions, several modules from ForgeBox, Bash scripts, and Alpine.js. And ya know what? This tech tech may very well become the new base line on which I start all future projects.
With so much great content at CFCamp, I'm having a hard time deciding between sessions! This is my best guess as to where you'll be able to find me.
I'm sitting in a hotel room in Munich, recovering from jet lag. That can only mean one thing: CF Camp is back, and I was picked as one of the speakers. :)
Into The Box 2023 wrapped up a couple weeks ago. And as always, it was a great conference!
