Hidden Gems in ColdFusion 2018, part 1: Series Overview

| View in Portal
January 18, 2019 09:43:18 PM GMT
<p>In every release of Adobe ColdFusion, there are the few major features which receive a lot of attention from Adobe and from CF users, but there are often dozens of lesser-known features that may help you, whether regarding coding or such things as security, administration, installation, configuration, tuning, monitoring, and so on. And of course, there can be important compatibility/migrations to be aware of, and still more.</p>

I had not established a schedule  but am shooting for about weekly. That said, since they have to go through a process to be moderated by Adobe  I'm not in complete control of the timing. Since this part 1 was released a week ago today (at noon central), I'm hopeful to still meet my "about weekly" goal.

I wanted to look at... <blockquote><strong>Secret Powers of Includes</strong> In this session, veteran CFUG speaker Charlie Arehart will share some tips and likely a few surprises a</blockquote> <blockquote>...</blockquote> But the link was dead. I would like to have read about that one. Or maybe even watched a video.

I have posted parts 3 and 4. The latest is here: <a href="https://coldfusion.adobe.com/2019/02/hidden-gems-cf2018-part-4-dev-features-cfml-repl-cffiddle-rest-playground/">https://coldfusion.adobe.com/2019/02/hidden-gems-cf2018-part-4-dev-features-cfml-repl-cffiddle-rest-playground/</a> Some will notice that I am also updating the top of this post with them, as I add them. Unfortunately, the portal has a glitch where if I do edit an existing entry (like this one), it will be taken offline until Adobe "moderates" it. So as much as I would love to come back and edit this part 1 post to point to the newest, I am reluctant, because each post in the series points out the part 1, as the one offering links to the others. (And sadly, there was no way for me to add a new tag or category, that would point to them all.) I will wait a few days, and then I will edit this post to point to part 4, and I will repeat this annoying process with future parts, as long as I must. :-(

James, sorry I somehow missed this a couple of weeks ago. So first, I gather you are referring to my talk from 2005, and I suppose you mean you found reference to it on my site. Curious that you bring it up in the context of this post and series, but ok. :-) I'm here to serve. So yep, I do see now that for those talks from 2003-2006,  I did not offer PDFs. I was working with a company who didn't have me put the files on their servers, but instead had me point to the presos as offered at the user groups where I presented these. Bummer. I am not readily finding the ppt's on my current machines. It would be on old ones, or backups. I may someday get around to finding and converting those to PDFs, as I did before and since. But here's good news for you: I did in fact write an article in the old CFDJ (CF Dev Journal) magazine back in July 2003, and fortunately that and all my CFDJ articles are still available online. Here's the link to that specific one: <a href="http://carehart.org/articles/#2003_10" rel="nofollow">http://carehart.org/articles/#2003_10</a> That will take you to the And with a pic from when I used to have hair--and dark hair, circa 2000. :-)
