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:
box install lmajano/hmvc-presso-demo.
Here are the slides from our presentation at CFCamp 2017 Day 2: ColdBox Hierarchical MVC. You can also find the source code for our demo here: https://github.com/lmajano/hmvc-presso-demo or you can use CommandBox to install it:
box install lmajano/hmvc-presso-demo
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.
Here are the slides from our presentation at CFCamp 2017 Day 1: A Tale of Legacy to Modernization.
Evolve or Die! How many times have they told you,
You still coding in that?. Come to this session to discover the infamous land of legacy ColdFusion applications, their why and existence motivations. We will then discover how to finally evolve them and take them to the wonderful land of Modern ColdFusion. Come and be inspired to kill the legacy monsters that have haunted you for far too long. We will deliver you once and for all of these inhumane beasts, so you can be proud of writing kick-ass applications with kick-ass tools in ColdFusion. Evolve or Die!
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.
At this year's CF.Objective I presented on the topic of programming design patterns. Here are the slides for the presentation. This session covers what programming design patterns are, how they got their start, and reviews common design patterns and antipatterns. There are simple code samples that go with most of the samples, including the antipatterns.
At this year's CF.Objective I had the privilege to present on CommandBox and how to create packages and publish them in our community website www.forgebox.io. It is imperative for the ColdFusion (CFML) community to start leveraging CommandBox and ForgeBox in order to create applications, libraries and share cool code!
CommandBox is the ColdFusion (CFML) CLI and package manager for modern applications. In this session, we will show you how to create, find and even publish packages to our centralized cloud repository, ForgeBox.
At this year's CF.Objective I had the privilege to present on testing and automation. Here are the slides for the presentation and you can find the test source code in github: https://github.com/coldbox-samples/cbvue.
In this advanced session, we will investigate all the ways that you can automate your testing processes with TestBox and many CI and automation tools. From Jenkins integration, Travis CI, Node runners, Grunt watchers and much more. This session will show you the value of continuous integration and how to apply it with modern tools and technologies.
