ColdFusion - The Relevant - The Community
One of the charming points of the Adobe ColdFusion conference was a video showing Jeremy and JJ Allaire chatting about how and why ColdFusion came about. It was in 1995 that the effective first version appeared; I started using version 1.54 in 1996 and computing was just a hobby of mine at that point, yet ColdFusion literally transformed my life. Adam Cameron pointed to a great blog post from Gavin Pickin which lists many great resources, which I am going to share here too. The thrust of his blog piece is, So how do we build a bigger better CFML Community? And I certainly know, from my client's perspective, we need more ColdFusion developers.
So here are some great resources Gavin pointed out to help in this and other regards:
- Charlie Arehart's CF411
- CF On-line Meetup
- Ortus Developer Week
- Learn CF In A Week
Gavin also suggests getting video's out there and I shall certainly be doing that with gory details and demo's of juicy Java server-side, trial, tribulation and triumph.
Thanks Gavin for your great post which I shall link to here.
