This week we debuted our first-ever Object-Oriented Programming Series in our CFML learning platform, CFCasts.
ColdFusion (CFML) has evolved as a language, this is a fact! It is no longer a procedural and monolithic language, but a rich object-oriented language with high functional constructs and modularity. As developers, we all need to adapt to the ever changing landscape that we are embedded in. I for one, am tired of other developers shaming ColdFusion and our legacy applications. At Ortus, learning and education are at the core of our foundation. We believe in empowering developers to not only DO their jobs, but do it better than anyone else. We want to be able to give them the best tools and the best possible training. With this in mind, we are bringing to you a rich object-oriented course that will empower you and adapt you to the ever-changing landscape of software development. It’s time for our ColdFusion apps to adapt, to be more flexible than every and move to modern land!
Moving to object orientation will empower you with the following benefits:
- Modernize your legacy software
- Move into modernization
- Become more productive by the power of reuse
- DRY: Do not repeat yourself
- Data redundancy: your data may be inherited
- Decrease maintenance costs
- Make your software flexible and adaptable
- Limited exposure because of data hiding and abstraction.
So, what are you waiting for? This is your chance to learn and become the developer you are meant to be!
