We are excited to bring our training Bootcamp series as a pre-conference workshop for this years Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. This training series will be led by Box creator Luis Majano and CommandBox Creator Brad Wood at the Mirage Hotel in a private training penthouse retreat. Register as soon as possible as space is very limited!

Course Detail

This training bootcamp is designed for beginning or intermediate ColdBox developers and focuses on the understanding and implementation of RESTful applications, modules, and microservices. At the end of the workshop, the participant will have developed a working RESTful API service which can be used as a baseline template for their own future development needs. The API service will be scaffolded and implemented using a variety of readily-available tools, such as CommandBox and the ColdBox REST application skeleton.
