After two days of non-stop sessions, it is safe to say that Into the Box 2020 proved to be a one-of-a-kind virtual experience. It is important to note that it wouldn’t have been possible without the trust and support of our speakers, sponsors and 100+ attendees. We were all witnesses to the power of the CFML community and we couldn’t be more thankful for allowing us to engage with you all.

As you may have noticed, we have many things cooking at Ortus. We wanted to highlight what is coming soon and what we have been working on so that you can keep track and be in the lookout for the releases. 

First up, we have CFCasts (alpha version is live!), a video portal where you’ll be able to access training and learning content on relevant topics around modern web development, this includes our free monthly webinars as well as our Into the Box recordings. 

Next, since so many of you asked for them, we are excited to announce that we’ll be offering our BOX Workshops in virtual format.
