Just about anyone who’s coordinated snacks for group activity knows what it’s like to see participants either show up with nothing or a lot of the same thing. Such snafus prompted the founders of SignUpGenius to create a better way to organize events. The site www.signupgenius.com offers sign-up creation, group messaging, and administrative tools for free, and a premium version also includes reporting, automation, and advanced admin features.
“The site’s simple and powerful online sign-up forms replace paper sign-up sheets and reply-all emails for hassle-free event coordination,” says Jad Talbert, Vice President of Architecture at SignUpGenius. “With Adobe ColdFusion and a small development team, we build easy-to-use products that help users simplify their busy schedules.”
Since it was launched in 2008, SignUpGenius has added features and improved application performance with Adobe ColdFusion to support processing large volumes of simultaneous sign-ups per second, sending millions of reminder emails per month, and processing large reports for users in real time Besides helping the company’s team of eight full-time developers update features quickly, Adobe ColdFusion supports scalable business flexibility.
A multi-instance deployment lets SignUpGenius triple online traffic to each of its servers, which makes it easier for the company to handle busy times and keep applications running smoothly for users. The company is also evaluating the new ColdFusion feature that allows session sharing across servers to improve load balancing. https://adobe.ly/2neByxy
I made a post last week regarding this and now would like to pass this on to wider audience, as well.
The “Core Support” for ColdFusion 10 ends on May 16, 2017. That means, no more Security patches/updates by Adobe for this version of ColdFusion after mid of May 2017. The detailed timelines are mentioned here in the EOL Matrix.
What is Core Support then? Core support is the time frame wherein the product and the support programs are available. This provides, five years of product support from the general availability date of a product.
General availability is the date when the product and the support programs are announced and available for purchase.
Extended support provides an additional two years of Platinum Maintenance and Support services after the end of Core Support. Extended Maintenance and Support provides the extra time you may need, to plan your migration to Adobe’s latest technology. Here is the source.
So, if you are on version 10 or prior then, its the correct time for you to upgrade. This will ensure your eligibility of getting Security updates and patches timely from Adobe, for the supported versions of ColdFusion, as and when released.
Come join the Adobe team as we begin the year with a series of events on the East Coast! Breakfast will be provided, and you'll hear about the latest roadmap and direction of Adobe ColdFusion along with more detailed plans over then next couple of years.

We would like to inform you that we have moved to a new bug tracking and reporting application called “Tracker". This was necessary as internally at Adobe, we have now transitioned to JIRA for issue/bug tracking for all the products. While functionally Tracker is similar to the BugBase application, there are still few inherent differences, that we thought, we should highlight. The same have been listed below:
1. While logging a bug, you will see a field, Component, which is equivalent to Product Area in BugBase. Any Component in Tracker is a combination of Product Area: SubArea, for example, Administrator: Admin API, Administrator: Code Analyser.
2. You will also see fields "Status, Resolution & Reason Code", which is equivalent to BugBase’s "Status, State & Reason".
3. 'Duplicate ID' for any old bugs would be seen as a part of 'Bug Description'.
4. Voting comments for old bugs would not be seen. However, count of votes is visible for all the old bugs.
There are some issues with Tracker that we are currently working on . While using Tracker, you may face:
- Issues in receiving mail notifications for any change in a bug.
- Some discrepancies in the number of bugs, that you had logged or voted for.
- Some discrepancies in the number of comments in the bug(s).
- The field “Reported By” for all bugs is missing.
As always, we request you to test drive our new bug tracking system and send your valuable feedback, so that, we can enhance the overall user experience. We will keep you posted once we fix the issues listed above.
