A Training Extravaganza Coming to Your Desktop or Mobile or iPad or Android or Whatever!

Featured Speaker: Gavin Pickin

Gavin is a proud ColdFusion developer, starting with ColdFusion in the late 90s. His first exposure to ColdFusion was while working for the University of Auckland under supervision of big ColdFusion Contractors. He got his feet wet early, with systems ranging from small, to extremely large and complex.

Moving the the United States in late 2000, Gavin has worked with several companies, creating many systems, that are still supporting thousands of websites, from small brochure, corporate, e-commerce, to large school districts websites.

During that time, he also built several custom applications to help businesses of all sizes find the solution they needed.

Gavin's strengths lie with ColdFusion and he works in all areas of the application design work flow, from Customer Project Specifications, ColdFusion Integration and Database Design, all the way through to the User Interface design and implementation, Customer Training and Support.

Still new in the world of Coldbox, he is in the process of converting and migrating several small and large apps to Coldbox.

This live session was recorded and is now viewable on Vimeo and Adobe Connect...

In this session, we'll walk through getting a real world ContentBox website up and running on Docker. We will look at the ContentBox docker image, which has a few extra ContentBox goodies added on top of the usual CommandBox docker image. We will learn how to use a file mount to be able to share Media files between 2 instances, and how to cluster sessions so your ContentBox site can run in the cloud, on more than one instance. Start to finish, launch your ContentBox site in the cloud.
