More Modern CFML --- closures, loops and queries!
• What we'll do As I get ready for IntoTheBox 2018 where I am speaking, I’m going to present again on more modern cfml features, especially now that I have use them a lot more: As ColdFusion and CFML have continued to evolve and improve over time, newer, more modern features have been added. Adobe connect: These features will help developers who use CFML work better, faster and more like other modern languages. These additions and improvements should help CFML’s standing in the industry because it is becoming more of a modern way to write code thus should attract more developers to at least take a new look at CFML. Some of those features are as follows: • CF 11 has added full 100% script support. This will allow developers to write cleaner code in a more modern fashion and it has a similar approach to languages like javascript. • CF 10 started the use of Closures to let developers write function expressions or a function that exists as part of a larger expression. • CF 11 added the queryExecute() function to use with script instead of using the tag cfquery. • The addition of member functions which are built-in object methods are a more straight forward way to write code and can be used in method chaining as well. • The idea that all CFML functions are now First Class functions and can be passed as callbacks and what does that mean to every developer Even though these are more modern features, any developer should be able to understand how these can benefit them. This presentation will show how these features can be implemented by anyone using CF 10 (and Lucee) and above, however, you don’t need to have any real knowledge about how these work before coming to this session. • What to bring • Important to know
