May 16, 2016


I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. ContentBox 3.0 has been a massive project, with so many changes and features, its really exciting to be a part of it. The good news, the testing is almost all done, we're going to cut a final release very soon. This means I have a lot of great things to blog about, and if you want a front seat to a full tour, you need to make sure you are coming to Into The Box (Ortus Solution's very own 1 day 2 track conference), June 14, 2016, in Minneapolis University of St Thomas, MN. USA - the day before Dev.Objective().

Note: You should attend both of these Conference, they are great, and the Ortus Solutions and ColdBox team will be giving several presentations at Into The Box and Dev.Objective()). They are great learning & networking events, hope to see you all there.

Luis Majano
Feb 10, 2016


We are so excited to bring our Training Bootcamp series to the Houston area this March from March 30 - April 1st, 2016.  This training series will be led by Box creator Luis Majano.  Whether you are an MVC expert or novice, this bootcamp will challenge you and refresh your skills to the latest ColdBox, CommandBox and TestBox versions.
The first 2 days of the course will focus on a quick start with CommandBox for CFML development and transitioning to ColdBox 4 MVC and Modular Development.  Day 3 will focus on one of the most feared topics for developers: TESTING!  We will demistify Behavior Driven Development and introduce the necessary tools to make you a testing ninja.

Into The Box Conference Schedule Released!

Luis Majano
Feb 08, 2016



We are so excited to finally unveil the schedule lineup for our Into The Box technology conference.  We have over 15 speakers from around the world and over 20 sessions around technology, software craftsmanship and many of our Ortus products.  We are also excited to try a new format for our afternoon sessions we are calling: Tech Tasting Sessions.

Our tech tasting sessions will be 25-30 minutes sessions, back to back, culminating in our Happy Box event, where you will then have some nice food and drink tasting sessions.  We believe this format will allow attendees to get exposed to other technologies, approaches and speakers, instead of traditional 1 hour sessions.

Please remember that space is limited and seats do go fast, so get your early bird special on this conference.  See you in June!
