Adobe ColdFusion Developer Week 2021 was held from Tuesday 6/22/21 through Thursday 6/24/21. It was an online event, and all sessions were recorded for attendees (more on that further in the text). So even if you did not attend the event, you should register for it and be able to download the recordings.
About the event
Adobe ColdFusion Developer Week had 23 sessions that cover ColdFusion 2021’s brand-new features and updates. Plus info on the next release of CF. And CF security, database optimization, and more. More details on topics and speakers are below.
CF Dev Week was free and speakers include 20 top CF experts.
BTW This was the 6th year of CF Dev Week. It was bigger and better than ever before, and organizers are very proud of it. And they should be. It was good.
If you are a new developer, someone with little or no experience with Adobe ColdFusion, or even if you have been using it all your life, these sessions are just what you need.
