The Ortus BlogBox
CF Summit 2017 was a lot of fun, lots of new faces, and good to meet friends, old and new alike. I really enjoyed the ColdBox 2 day training, RESTFul Training Bootcamp. I also enjoyed, Pete Freitag's Hands On CFML Security Workshop. It was fun, and terrifying at the same time. My session on 3 ways to test your ColdFusion API went well, lots of interest, and lots of discussion after the class. I am sharing my slides in this post, as well as a collection of other Video Presentations from previous presentations by myself, and others, which will help build upon the information presented.
Here is the slide deck for my talk CFConfig -- A new way to manage your ColdFusion engine config that I presented at Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2017.
Here are our slides from our ColdBox Hierarchical MVC presentation at this year's Adobe ColdFusion Summit. You can also find the source code for our demo here: https://github.com/lmajano/hmvc-presso-demo or you can install it via CommandBox:

The ColdBox Platform was the first conventions based MVC framework for ColdFusion. It has evolved and become the de-facto standard for building scalable and modern ColdFusion applications. Come learn about hierarchical MVC and modularization to scale your legacy or new applications to a new modern era.

Most projects in CF now involve creating some type of consumable CFC Endpoint or API Service… do you Unit test your API, do you use Integration Tests on your API? How many ways do you test your API? Not all tests are created equal.
We’ve all had those projects, the salvage project, the legacy project that we picked up, and wished we never had.
Was it written 5 years ago by that young dev with lots of passion but no big picture vision.
Was it written 6 months ago by another team, by a top gun developer who knows all the design patterns, and tried to future proof the app, only succeeding in making it impossible for anyone else to understand.
