trycf.com is a new learning initiative by Abram Adams. The idea of the portal is to offer tutorials for new or beginner level ColdFusion developers with interactive tutorials using which you can type in CFML code on the browser and see the results live! This is a great way to quickly learn the CFML programming without having to download ColdFusion.
What's more, Abram Adams also has a contest running right now where the you, the ColdFusion community, can help take this initiative to the next levels by submitting tutorials that thousands of other developers can use to learn. The process of submitting the turorials for the contest is simple and is outlined here. The top entry in the contest will receive $300 and every valid entry will receive a copy of ColdFusion Builder! Submit your turotials now!
learncfinaweek.com, again a community driven initiative, is already a popular resource for learning the basics of ColdFusion in just a week's time. I am confident that trycf.com too will turn out to be an excellent learning resource for CF developers.

I am pleased to let you know that there is a mobile app available for iOS and Android for the Adobe ColdFusion Summit happening in Vegas.
The best part about this is app is that the entire app is built using the new Mobile features coming up in ColdFusion Splendor and ColdFusion Builder Thunder. The code for the app will be shared after the CFSummit.
