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.


I updated my slides to include the following, relevant resources... but for convenience, they are listed below, as well.
Remember, Ortus Solutions has many many videos available online for free, at Ortus Solutions' online event page, and under Luis Majano's vimeo page, linked below.
