Only 28 days are left to the conference and we have heard that almost all the tickets are gone. Not too many rooms left in the hotel either.
Workshop Coldbox 0-Hero has officially been filled. In this workshop by Gavin Pickin you will be introduced to the latest version of the most popular CFML MVC framework;
ColdBox 5. Learn more about the basics of installation, templating and configuration to the most advanced features like HMVC development with modules, RESTFul APIs, interception points and much more.
You still have time to make it to the other 3 workshops. Hurry up!
Mr. Brad Wood will take you through the basics of using CommandBox CLI in your everyday workflow. Also, the focus will be on topics like managing servers, package management, and scripting command line tasks using CFML and Task Runners. Brad will cover extending the CommandBox core with modules to add your own behaviours.

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.
