What readers are saying about CF Alive:
G Cantor Verified Buyer
best practices resource for CF developers
“In CF Alive, the author explores best practices surrounding modern web development, recommending specific software tools and other resources for implementing these best practices for Adobe ColdFusion and other CFML application developers. What I liked best about the book (Kindle version), is that I could read about a recommended software tool, then link directly to a CF Alive Podcast between the author and a highly-experienced ColdFusion developer with expertise in using that tool.”
Miles Rausch Verified Reviewer
An important step toward revitalizing CFML
“This book is taking on a tough challenge: convince the web development world that ColdFusion is worth investing in. There's a lot working against ColdFusion: its age, its decline in popularity, its perception as stagnant. What this book does, however, is line up all the many responses to those criticisms. It reaches out to new and former ColdFusion developers with the words of the very community that writes ColdFusion code today. It also speaks to existing ColdFusion developers and encourages them to embrace the latest techniques and technology that the ColdFusion community offers to help bolster and improve the name of ColdFusion in the development community.
If you are a current or former ColdFusion developer or simply curious about developing for ColdFusion, you should check this book out.”
“I love the inspirational quotes throughout the book, and all the contributions from other CF community members. This reminds me of the Fusion Authority articles and the great sense of community support that they provided. The “Outreach” chapter is excellent in this regard — reading it brought back a lot of the feelings I got when I first met people in the CF community and shows how passionate the CFML community still is.
This is an excellent reference for people new to CMFL looking to get a jump start on recommended practices, and a great resource for anyone doing web development that just needs to be inspired again. (Full disclosure: I was interviewed for this book and also helped with the technical editing.”
