Home conference. This is one of my new prints! Link to buy from my shop is in my bio. This was in the guardian last week, maybe last month, who knows what time is anymore. #lockdown #homeschool #coronavirus #comedy #covid_19 #satire #cartoons #comics #parenting #stephencollins #theguardian
That's pretty much what happened with conferences in 2020, too. CF community however didn't wait too long and we adapted to the situation.
What can we expect in 2021?
Adobe, Ortus Solutions, CF Camp, and everyone else seem to be pretty quiet for now. Maybe they're like me, hoping that things will settle down and we'll be able to travel and hang out again like we used to… (cry)
Anyhow, I am really looking forward to that time again.

Adobe ColdFusion Webinar Series
Combining the feature-rich Adobe API Manager with RESTful ColdFusion Web Services for a complete API Management Solution.
Combining the feature-rich Adobe API Manager with RESTful ColdFusion Web Services for a complete API Management Solution.
In this series, you will learn how to use the ColdFusion API Manager, along with RESTful ColdFusion Web services. You will get a firsthand look at how to publish APIs securely and at an incredible scale, for developers, partners, and subscribers.
In the seven-part series, you will be provided a detailed view of several important features of the API Manager and offerings of ColdFusion when building RESTful APIs.
Everything from writing, publishing, securing, and monitoring APIs will be covered with hands-on examples and easy-to-follow discussions. To increase your API capabilities, security and lifecycle management will be discussed and easily broken down into small segments to give a 360-degree view in springboarding your development efforts with all things related to APIs.
By the conclusion of this series, you will have a solid foundation of knowledge for managing a modern API Gateway and easily being able to maintain your existing back services no matter where they are hosted, or what language they are developed in, with a special emphasis on all things ColdFusion.
ColdFusion API Manager: Versioning and Lifecycle Management
April 28, 2021| 12 PM EST
Versioning APIs and the various Lifecycles that an API can experience are crucial to maintaining a professional set of APIs that will scale and perform when published. Understanding your underlying blueprints for services and the usage will be a critical item for knowing how to version, manage, and catalog API changes in your organization. Notifications and communicating with subscribers and publishers will allow for seamless growth and maintenance of your API ecosystem.
ColdFusion API Manager: Rate Limiting and Throttling
April 29, 2021| 12 PM EST
Protecting your API environment is a vital step in ensuring your API health. Controlling incoming requests and throttling unwanted traffic can easily be monitored and maintained using the API Manager. In this session we will cover SLAs, how to rate limit by subscriber request, and how to manage alerts and thresholds. This is a crucial session that will give you the knowledge to provide stability for your platform and could even be used to capitalize on your organization’s data.
ColdFusion API Manager: Security and How to Protect Your Organization
May 13, 2021| 12 PM EST
ColdFusion API Manager: API Monitoring and Alerting
May 24, 2021 | 12 PM EST
Using Elastic Search, the API Manager provides an easy-to-use analytics tool to get informative details about all API calls entering your organizations API environment. With the ability to get real time reports on traffic and usage, you have total control over your APIs and incoming requests. We will cover, in detail, how to use the analytics features, writing Elastic queries, setting up reports, and creating rich dashboards. As a bonus, we will look at some simple ways to build out an alerting system for problematic APIs along with real time monitoring of errors. This is a vast offering of the API Manager and we will heavily focus on the business intelligence it provides for publishers using the API Manager.
ColdFusion API Manager: Policy Management and Access Controls
May 25, 2021| 12 PM EST
Each subscriber may have different needs. Constantly making changes will increase inconsistencies and one-off technical debt situations that will eventually not scale. What if a system could manage policies and access controls based on the request and maintain consistency in your back end services? Look no further, the ColdFusion API manager will allow you to easily change the behavior of the API through configurations. Learn how to utilize policy management, execute sequentially organized rules, and change the request or response without impacting your back end services. This is a fantastic feature of the API Manager and will provide excellent foundational principles for securing the health of your API ecosystem.

Comprehensive list of ColdFusion Conferences 2020
“… every year, we are seeing an increase in the number of developers that are coming to the events like you would have seen and even Las Vegas event last year was bigger than the year before. And hopefully this year, the Summit East is going to be bigger than what it was last year.” – Kishore Balakrishnan
Into The Box 2020
This year brings new kind of “normal” and Into The Box conference was no different. Covid 19 world pandemic has forced us to distance ourselves from all sorts of things. Conferences were canceled and so many businesses (and lives) changed.
ITB adapted. It has shown that they can successfully do a virtual conference. On May 7. and 8. 2020. Into The Box was held in your home. Bedroom. Dorm room. Home office.
While many say that this is not something they got used to, to us, the programmers can easily say that working from home has been normal for a few years now. Yes, maybe equally cool parts such as hanging out in the venue and in the after- parties is missing out this year, still there’s plenty of awesome things to learn at the conference. And that’s what this article is about. The next one might be, on the options of how we can hang around at the virtual conference and have fun. ?
Adobe CF Summit East 2020
CF Summit East started in the second year of CF Summit in Las Vegas and it’s mainly for people who can’t travel to the West coast. The 2020 was canceled due to Covid-19 crisis. We were happy to follow Adobe ColdFusion Developer Week 2020 webinar instead.
Why is CF Summit East important to the CF Community?
- Learn CF new features
- Future roadmap of CF (through 2028)
- Networking with other CF developers, CF speakers and Adobe CF senior staff

CF Camp 2020
Known as the only CF conference in Europe, CF Camp has quickly become the conference. With over 200 attendees, and always interesting speakers, it is interesting and very informative for both speakers and attendees.
The latest conference was in the small town of Freising, near Munich, Germany, and this is where 2020 will be held as well. There's still no official announcement because of the Covid 19 situation, but we're hoping this won't stop Michi (Michael Hnat) and the rest of the crew.
Adobe CF Summit India 2020
We are still waiting for the official announcement, but we hear that it’s going to be very big this year. Last year's conference in India had more than 200 attendees, so we hope to see a 2-day conference, perhaps?
ColdFusion Webinars 2020
ColdFusion for the Next Decade – All about the Buzzworthy ColdFusion 2020 (Webinar by Adobe)
One of the reasons for ColdFusion’s success right from its inception is that the platform has been able to pivot at regular intervals to remain relevant for the future. There are very few technologies that have managed to stay in the game for so long and that is something all of us in the community are proud of. ColdFusion 2020, slated to be released next year, is going one such pivotal release in the history of ColdFusion. The vision for ColdFusion 2020 goes like this:
“To be the modernized platform of choice for building cloud-native microservice applications with absolute focus on ease of use without getting locked to a particular cloud vendor (multi-cloud).”
Attend this session as the Product Manager for ColdFusion unravels every piece of ColdFusion 2020 that leads to the overarching vision.

CFCamp 2019 will be held on 17+18th October at Munich Airport Marriott Hotel, Freising.
If you're interested in giving a talk at CFCamp 2019, get in touch with organizers, and provide some information about the session you would like to give along with some information about yourself.
I had the pleasure of attending this conference organized by the Adobe ColdFusion team, in the first week of December.
After the CF Summit West 2019 in Las Vegas which is the biggest ColdFusion conference in the world, which was in October, this event took place in Bengaluru.
It is a confluence of everything in the realm of web applications. If you develop web applications, this is the place to be. For designers, developers, strategists and thought leaders, the ColdFusion India Summit provides the perfect forum to exchange ideas, inspiration, and experiences.
ColdFusion Webinars 2019
Continuous Security for Your CFML Code With Fixinator Webinar With Pete Freitag, 2019
In this webinar, Pete explained how to scan a code base, produce reports, and let Fixinator fix some of the issues it finds. Another takeaway was on how to setup Fixinator in a continuous integration workflow, so it runs every time you commit code to the repository, giving you instant, automatic, continuous feedback.

Clean up Your Legacy Code with Codechecker With George Murphy, 2019
Take a look at a free open source tool for checking your ColdFusion code for vulnerabilities. There are several rules that it can check for. Those include missing cfqueryparams and un-var scoped variables. The value of this code checker is that you can build rules for it.
So, if you find something that is not included in the tool it can be added. It can run in a browser or in the CommandBox CLI. We will take a deep dive into some legacy code to look for vulnerabilities and items that make up the best practice list. This application was developed to modernize and update about 300 legacy applications. The tool can also print all of the findings to an Excel spreadsheet with a link to the offending items.
Adobe Evangelizing for ColdFusion at Developer Week 2019
Some people say that Adobe isn't doing enough to support and promote ColdFusion. That's not true. Adobe's own Kishore Balakrishnan and Elishia Dvorak attended the DeveloperWeek in San Francisco, California.

Adobe ColdFusion and Lucee CFML News and Updates
ColdFusion has been around for more than 25 years. It had it’s ups and downs as everything does, it seems that lately it shows the signs of vitality and longevity. The always inevitable question (mostly by the nay-sayers) “is CF dead?” is becoming obsolete. Nevertheless, we are not going to talk anymore.
In it’s third decade, ColdFusion is more alive, secure and more vibrant than ever!
Legacy code is still a big issue for most of the companies. What this means, is that so often companies don't keep their CF regularly updated, which means, less security and more spaghetti code. But, this is easily solved by keeping your CF up to date, modern and secure.
24 Years of ColdFusion Thriving
Here's an example. Websockets is becoming very popular now. ColdFusion has had it since 2011. In order for CF to be relevant for the next decade, Adobe plans to go to the cloud. Serverless is what the world is aiming now, and for CF to be a relevant player in the game, it is planning to become the most productive platform.
Cloud containerization and serverless is the goal for Adobe.
CF is working on becoming a multi-cloud platform. Which means it won't be dependant on only one cloud.
But, we’ll get there soon.

Comprehensive list of ColdFusion Conferences 2018
Each of the CF conferences had their own specific mark and they were all a big success.
Adobe ColdFusion CF Summit East 2018 was on April 25th, 2018 in Washington DC and it was free to attend. As Adobe people told us and predicted, more than 200 people attended the conference.
Muracon 2018- some of you (CFers) didn't think it's worth it to attend this conference. This might cost you some valuable knowledge. Although organized by Mura it wasn't just about Mura CMS.
Here's the full list of slides and presentations.
Into the Box 2018 conference was a huge success. And not just for the organizers. Each year attendees can take even more knowledge, new acquaintances and positive vibes back home. Big thanks to the guys from Ortus Solutions and congrats on a job well done!
Here's the full list of slides and presentations.
CF Summit 2018 (an Amazing Time for ColdFusion) was great. The sheer number of different speakers was just amazing. Each speaker gave such wonderful insights into the world of ColdFusion and CFML operations. Whoever said ColdFusion is dead definitely needs to reconsider that statement.
