I am happy to be blogging again after a period of relative silence due to some weird behavior on my RAID 1 server; the RAID did not work. In any case, apologies to anyone who tried to find an article and instead ended up with a rude error. I am also very happy to have been chosen as a member of the Open BlueDragon initiative as my coding skills pale into insignificance in comparison to other members of the committee. However, I know I am going to be able to extend my knowledge of the server side to bring benefits to the CFML community.
There have been some negative comments and quizzical comments about why New Atlanta are doing this and I have to say myself that I was concerned about other than ColdFusion engines for CFML because of differing tag offerings etc. After listening to Vince Bonfanti's pod cast on ColdFusion Weekly I am sure the initiative is driven by the experiences of other such initiatives and as Vince is a programmer himself, having created Lasso, which I had encountered running on Mac's pre OS/X, I am sure a large part is to benefit the development community.
The success or failure of this initiative will depend on all of us in the CFML community having at least a keen interest and hopefully diving in and getting involved.
This is a unique opportunity, it would be great if we are able to truly make the best of it.
