Setting up Lucee in my Dev Environment - Changing Ports

CFML Server, cfObjective, Lucee, Migrating to Railo, Server Admin, Tools and IDEs

A while back now, I released a series of posts on setting up Apache along with  Railo, ColdFusion, in a multi engine setup, including some ways to make it easier to maintain virtual hosts in Apache, and Railo. Now, I’m getting the Lucee Express setup on my Dev environment, so I thought it would be a good time to rehash some of that, and see whats different, or what I’m doing differently these days.

Lucee was just announced a few days ago, so the Express is designed for all OSes, the installers are in the queue, but they have not been released yet, so this does not cover an installer options. We’re assuming you went to www.lucee.org and clicked on downloads, and downloaded and unzipped the Lucee Express Folder.

Multi CFML Engine Install - speaking at cf.Objective() today

CFML Server, cfObjective, Conferences, Server Admin

Today is the day, I do my large presentation at cf.Objective(), why do I say large? Well, I bit off a lot when I submitted this topic... so trying to fit all of it in, in 50 mins, with time for questions, is almost impossible, so I am going to release a lot of the information on my blog, and I have made a mini website tacked onto my blog, so everyone attending my session have a great reference for after the session. Installing CF 9, CF 10, CF 11, Railo, and then getting them all to work through Apache, if you have that installed, if not, installing Apache, on Mac Linux or Window, is a large chunk of information, so I'm going to try and provide as much assistance with those topics, but my session will focus on how to bring them all together, while just highlighting items to be aware of while installing.

CFML Conference - Into the Box - Keynote Goodies

CFML Language, cfObjective, ColdBox, Conferences

If you did not know, today, the day before cf.Objective(), Ortus Solutions' very own 1 day ColdFusion Conference is going on at the Homewood Suites by Hilton, across the road from the Radison Blu. The event has a large number of community sponsors, speakers from Team Coldbox, and other community members, plenty of goodies, its not hard to believe the conference sold out. I've talked about the event several times on my blog, because I'm speaking today, but also because I have been eagerly awaiting some ColdBox announcements at the keynote, and it did not disappoint.

Heartbleed - Heartbeats - and other Heart filling stories

CFML Server, cfObjective, Chit Chat, ColdBox, Conferences, OpenSSL, Server Admin

Yes, I still have a heartbeat, although my blog didn't have much of one for a while, that is true. The heart filling story, is that my mum and dad flew in the day after my last blog post, so I've been spending a lot of time with my parents, sharing experiences with their grandchildren. They live in New Zealand, so they do not visit too often, and my busy life got even busier. I have been busy, but you have to wait and see the fruit of my labor, more about that below. Of course, this week, you can't go far without talking about Heartbleed, so I have a few tips for those of you fighting Heartbleed too

Charity Corner - Diabetes and Fly a Foul Mouthed Fusioner Fund

CFML Language, cfObjective, Charity Corner, Chit Chat

EDIT - Please go to support Jared here instead

Tomorrow I have a meeting with one of my new Charity Corner businesses tomorrow. I have decided to try and help out the community by dedicated so many hours a month to help local charity and non profit groups trying to get up and running. Tomorrow, I'm meeting with a brand new Non Profit who's mission is to help run camps and events for young and old Diabetics (type 1 and 2), in our region, where there are no Diabetic groups currently running. With parents suffering from Type 2, and one of my Sisters a life long Type 1 sufferer, I thought it was a worthy candidate for this months project. While thinking about this Charity project, I thought of another one, that the ColdFusion community might be interested in.

In our small but powerful ColdFusion community, our currency seems to be based on Virtual Thank you's, and Beer… surprisingly, a lot of beer. I am saddened to say, one of our biggest contributors to the community of late was thinking about cashing in some of this currency, but was sad to know, that the Airlines, will not take a series of IOUs, even those IOUs for beer.

Conferences - cf.Objective() - Early Bird Rate Extended

cfObjective, Conferences

I had planned today to write a little message saying, quick last chance for early bird rates, and then I told you to get in while you had a chance. I got busy, as you do, and by the time I got around to it, I saw a tweet stating the Early Bird rate had been extended. Why? I'll let you read the message here but the important thing is, its Valentines, do your thing, and then you have 2 weeks more to convince your manager to send you to cf.Objective().

See you there, or else!!!

cfObjective, ColdBox, Conferences

I was talking to a couple of people about the upcoming Conferences, Into the Box May 13th, and cf.Objective() May 14-16, both in Bloomington, MN, and they asked, why did I want to speak at Into the Box, when I was already speaking at cf.Objective(). Here are a few questions and my answers, peek into my thought process.
