We announced our plans on a full-fledged ColdFusion conference this year. Here is a follow up survey to capture your inputs and feedback. As always your participation in the survey is highly appreciated. This is also your chance to let Adobe know how you would like to see the new conference on ColdFusion shape up.
Here's the survey link
As you are also aware, due to MAX’s focus on Creative Cloud tools and services, there are no ColdFusion sessions at Adobe MAX this year. The unconferences too are going to be dedicated to those that support the Creative Cloud offering. So it is unlikely that the ColdFusion unconference will happen at MAX this year. But the good news is that we do have an exclusive ColdFusion conference planned. Please participate in the survey and give us your feedback.

This is the season to celebrate and the intent of this post is to share a series of positive news and initiatives from Adobe that we are excited to share with the community.
ColdFusion 10 feedback and ColdFusion Business
We have received positive feedback for ColdFusion 10, and this is also reflected in the way business for ColdFusion has turned up. The business is doing better now than any point in the last few years. This quarter has been ColdFusion’s best since 2008.
This is very encouraging to Adobe and we will continue to make efforts to grow the product. Thanks to you for supporting the product.
We have initiated new roadmap discussions where Senior leadership from Adobe participate in engaging discussions with customers. In these discussions we have received excellent feedback on ColdFusion 10, and our customers also like the future directions that we are taking and look forward to the upcoming versions of ColdFusion.
As you may be aware, the promised cloud release of ColdFusion on Amazon EC2 has been delayed due to issues with agreements between Adobe and Amazon. We have resolved these issues and we are slated to offer an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for ColdFusion 10 with flexible hourly pricing.
Shorter Release Cycles
We are looking to reduce the release cycles for ColdFusion to create more impact through new features and functionalities and also make use of the window of opportunity that lies with ever changing space of new and upcoming technologies.
During the next year, one of our major efforts designed to grow the size of the community is promoting ColdFusion at various community colleges. Adobe will come up with a detailed semester-long curriculum for server side programming concepts demonstrated through ColdFusion. Instructor guides, quizzes, exams, and software required to teach will all be provided; along with access to a community expert that the instructors or students can interact with. If you have any contacts at colleges near you, please let us know. If you have any other ideas to promote ColdFusion in education, share that with us as well.
ColdFusion Conference from Adobe
Due to MAX’s focus on Creative Cloud tools and services, we are considering a full-fledged ColdFusion conference to be organized by the ColdFusion Business Unit at Adobe. While Adobe will be the primary organizers, we want to maximize community involvement in various aspects such as content selection.
Recharging CF User Groups
We are looking to actively engage with the ColdFusion user groups during the next year. ColdFusion 10 events are already in the works with interested user groups, and more is on the way.
We are also excited about our future releases – Splendor and Dazzle. A high level overview of each is available on our public facing roadmap available here. If you have questioned Adobe’s commitment to the platform, I encourage you to take a look at the roadmap. All of the customers with whom we have discussed the roadmap responded positively and gave promising feedback. Customers are also excited about the directions that we are taking, addressing key technological challenges in upcoming versions. If your organization is keen on participating in a roadmap discussion with the senior leadership from Adobe, let us know!
We look forward to exciting times for ColdFusion.
I will leave you with some of the photographs of the party that the Product Team had to celebrate the quarterly result and the success of ColdFusion 10. Here is the link.
Leave your thoughts and inputs as comments on this post.
Happy holidays everyone and come back for a great 2013 for ColdFusion!
