The DFW ColdFusion User Group normally meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month. We'd planned to avoid Valentine's day and meet on the 16th with a 2nd presentation on Ext.js. However, the guys at the Dallas Flex User Group informed me that they will be hosting Ted Patrick from Sencha (the owners of Ext.js) on the same night. Check out the details and note that this is NOT at our normal meeting location at Paladin's offices.
The first CFML conference of the year is almost here. Come on down to Dallas and hang out with one of the largest ColdFusion / CFML communities in the US.
It's been a year and a half since my last post and over two years since my last truly technical post. I promised myself I'd get back to writing this year, but life and work kept getting in the way. Fortunately, I've been able to get a number of things back on track over the last few months. This blog is one of them.
Thanks to Michael and Judith Dinowitz, there is a new ColdFusion book on the market, Adobe ColdFusion Anthology, and I'm glad to have had a hand in it.
I've been sitting on this for over a year now it's finally here! The book is an anthology of articles from Fusion Authority magazine. Chapter 11 of the book is my contribution, "You Might Have a Performance Bottleneck If". Written in the mood of Jeff Foxworthy, I outline 12 common problems in web applications (not just CF applications) that can be easily solved by the proper use of a database.
What are you waiting for? Pick up your copy of Adobe ColdFusion Anthology today! :)
The Dallas/Ft. Worth ColdFusion User Group has been working through the book Head First Design Patterns, taking the Java-centric code examples in the chapters and implementing them in ColdFusion to see how they may apply to us as ColdFusion developers.
