Because… perhaps you are responsible for a mission-critical or revenue-generating CF application that you don’t trust 100%, where implementing new features is a painful ad-hoc process with slow turnaround even for simple requests.
What if you have no contingency plan for a sudden developer departure or a server outage? Perhaps every time a new freelancer works on your site, something breaks. Or your application availability, security, and reliability are poor.
And if you are depending on ColdFusion for your job, then you can’t afford to let your CF development methods die on the vine.
You’re making a high-stakes bet that everything is going to be OK using the same old app creation ways in that one language — forever.
All it would take is for your fellow CF developer to quit or for your CIO to decide to leave the (falsely) perceived sinking ship of CFML and you could lose everything—your project, your hard-won CF skills, and possibly even your job.
Luckily, there are a number of simple, logical steps you can take now to protect yourself from these obvious risks.

Michaela: Welcome back to the show. Today I'm talking with Elishia Dvorak. And we're going to talk about the API manager that came out in ColdFusion 2016 and its being updated for ColdFusion 2018. And if you haven't come across that, we'll look at what is and why you'd want to use it? What the business case for is? And very excitingly, it's actually attracting new people who aren't even ColdFusion developers currently to use cold fusion because of it. So welcome Elishia.
Elishia: Thank you and hello everyone.
Michaela: And if you don't know, she is the Technical Marketing Manager for Adobe ColdFusion. and also there e-learning products. And she actually started out as a ColdFusion developer quite a few years ago.
Elishia: That's right and thanks for the introduction. I did start out years and years ago as a ColdFusion developer for a short stint but I did spend quite a lot of time and most of my years in my career doing support and account management for the larger architectures, so that's where most of my experience is and really architecting solutions and troubleshooting a problem.
