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

WireBox - Possible Gotcha with Binder Config File Settings and using Full CFC Path

CFML Language, ColdBox, Techie Gotchas, WireBox

My last post, I looked at Installing ColdBox's WireBox Standalone library into one of my legacy sites. We got the Core downloaded, mapped, we created an Injector, and looked at how to create your Objects using the Injector. We even looked at using Annotations and the Binder Config file to tell WireBox how you wanted those Objects wired.

CFML Language, ColdBox, Dependency Injection, WireBox

I'm dealing with a the task of bringing more and more of my legacy code projects into this decade, especially when we're doing upgrade and continuous work, so we can eliminate some of the headaches as we move forward. One of the steps is ensuring we are using our CFC components properly, so today, I am going to install Wirebox into our app, which is easy, but this series, we'll go through the other steps to being able to use Wirebox properly. I use that word like I know what Properly is, I guess we'll find out soon if I do know, or not.
