Free ColdFusion, ColdFusion Builder and ColdBox Framework Crash Training – Bring Your Own Laptop Lab on Saturday, May 8th 2010 at 10:00 AM. Join the Central Florida Web Developers User Group in a day of free training covering the building of a enterprise-quality application using ColdFusion (CFML/CFScript), ColdFusion Builder, mySQL and the ColdBox Framework.
A brief agenda: Participants will build a maintainable, scalable and elegant application using ColdFusion, ColdFusion Builder, mySQL and the ColdBox Framework. Specific items include:

  • Use ColdFusion Builder and other Eclipse plug-ins to improve focus and productivity and learn some tips and tricks for the IDE and plug-ins.

  • Gain an understanding of a Model-View-Controller MVC pattern.

  • Learn and use the ColdBox framework and understand it’s organization and the powerful ColdBox toolkit.

  • Build an object-oriented model-layer using design patterns (such as the decorator pattern) to improve code re-usability and code quality.

  • Integrate the model-layer with the framework’s event handlers and interceptors and

  • Integrate Ajax calls into the framework.

  • Easily manage and organize all the assets required to make a quality application including batching and minifying JavaScript and CSS. Also, learn how to eaisly include only the JavaScript and CSS required for a specific request.

    ColdBox seems great(er) but like Fusebox it requires getting used to it.
    Aaron Greenlee is most knowledgeable, a great communicator and accomodating, in sum the ideal teacher!

    We lost Internet connection early in the presentation. A video will be posted within a week or so for remote guests.

    Was a great meetup to learn how to use coldbox and work with your applications in a MVC setting. Wish I had this meeting when I was learning coldbox.
