Episode 27 - Live from cf.Objective(ANZ) 2012!

November 2nd, 2012 · Comments

In this episode we are joined by the venerable Mark Drew where we talk about his favourite features in Railo 4, what his favourite IDE is and the interesting relationship between Adobe ColdFusion and Railo's CFML engine.

It's an interesting conversation all around, and live talks often are, including plenty of audience participation.

Kai also admits to his strange relationship with cats.

Update from Kai: Towards the end of the episode there's a bit of an uproar in regards to Cats that look like Pinups. Please note that the content might or might not offend you. You've been warned :)

September 10th, 2012 · Comments

Today we were joined by Kris Korsmo who is presenting at cf.Objective(ANZ) this year on Efficient Coding Using CFBuilder.

We talk with him about IDEs, including ColdFusion Builder as well as other options (and we find out that Kai hates VIM).

As well as that, we cover Azure, building Windows 8 apps, as well as Mark's new 2560x1440 Catleap Q270 Monitor.

Episode 22 - Clojure and Functional Programming with Sean Corfield

April 24th, 2012 · Comments

We got the wonderful opportunity to talk to the illustrious Sean Corfield this week, which was a great delight and pleasure.

Continuing with our exploration of "What would happen if ColdFusion died tomorrow", we explore further into the Clojure programming language, as well functional programming, and Lisps as a whole.

We discuss with Sean the reasons behind why you would want to use a Functional programming language, over Object Oriented, the reasons why they have had increasing popularity over the last few years, as well as how you can integrate Clojure into your CFML applications.

We also go a little deeper into how you would structure a Functional programming application and the tools that you would use to develop with Clojure. Make sure to check the bottom of this post, we have ALOT of resources to link to.

If you have any questions regarding what we talked about on the podcast, please feel free to add a comment, and we'll make sure that Sean notices.

Also, if you are looking for a job, and want to work with Mr. Corfield himself, the company he works for World Singles is hiring! Two positions are available:

  1. Back end, data-centric
  2. Front end, design + CFML

Resources

We have so many, that it needed it's own section!

If you have any more you would like to add, please feel free to add a comment!

Episode 21 - What would you do if ColdFusion died tomorrow?

April 20th, 2012 · Comments

So in this episode, we propose the following hypothetical scenario:

Adobe decides that it’s EOL’ing ColdFusion, without open sourcing it. Micha, Denny, Gert and Mark Drew all crash into the ocean in a tragic plane accident (they should really fly separately) and we discover that the OpenBD corporation is over an Indian burial ground, and everyone disappears in what looks like a horrific massacre, but no bodies can be found.

So essentially, CF is about as dead as it could possibly get. What do you do? Can you keep your applications with the platform you are on? Do you have to move? Can ColdFusion be resurrected and/or continued? Do you have to move to another language - and if so, which one?

It's a fairly interesting discussion topic, as it really forces you to look outside of "CFML-land", and make a proper examination of the offerings that currently exist, which is something that not a lot of us do (present company included).

As per always, we welcome any comments and or discussions - so please feel free to add comments to this blog post.

Also - if you have experience with any of the languages we have talked about on the show (or some we haven't), and think it would be an interesting addition to the podcast, please get in touch, we would love to have you on.

Links to some items we referenced in the show:

Also, don't forget - we'll be at cf.Objective(ANZ) which is the 1st and 2nd of November this year!
