Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2015 Pre-conference Workshops

By now you all know about the upcoming ColdFusion Summit Conference in November (9th &10th).  If not, register now with the latest discount code still active through the end of September: 


We are also doing something different this year by offering a full day of hands on labs in a pre-conference workshop on November 8th, the day before Adobe ColdFusion Summit starts.  These hands on labs will be separated into two half day sessions.  The first half of the day will be focused on Security, and the second half of the day will focus on best practices in development.  It’s a great opportunity to receive a full day of training in a lab/walkthrough experience.  


Aria Resort & Casino


November 8th 9am to 5pm


$99 if you are already registered for Adobe ColdFusion Summit

$149 if you are not registered for Adobe ColdFusion Summit

Twenty years of making web happen – Happy Birthday, ColdFusion!

Twenty years ago, this day, the very first version of ColdFusion was launched. Originally developed by Jeremy Allaire and JJ Allaire in 1995, ColdFusion has been around for as long as the Web itself.

Over the past two decades, ColdFusion has had a profound impact on web application development. In the early days, ColdFusion made a difference to web application development by offering an easy-to-use language for all things Web. Today, ColdFusion empowers our customers to build desktop and mobile web applications through an end-to-end application development framework and HTML5 support, facilitate scaling the value of their data and services through REST-based APIs all the time ensuring scalability, stability and security that are so central to the needs of large-enterprise applications. 

Here’s a quick snapshot of ColdFusion’s journey over the last twenty years. 

ColdFusion continues to be deeply entrenched in large commercial and government enterprises and continues to be backbone of many mission critical applications in these environments. We owe all our success to our customers and ColdFusion developers and thank them for the continued investment in ColdFusion. I also take time to thank all the active user groups and their managers who passionately and enthusiastically drive the ColdFusion message in their communities. 

The 20 year celebration will culminate at the Adobe CFSummit 2015 later this year. I look forward to meeting and interacting with all of you at the Summit.

The last twenty years have been great, and I strongly believe that the best is still ahead of us.

Speed and performance for fans of speed and performance

As specialists in tuning web applications for maximum
performance, developers at Webapper understand the expectations of a client
such as RACERSITES, a leading designer, developer, and content manager for many
of the top brands in motor sports. Websites for some of racing’s biggest
events, such as the Grand Prix of Monaco, the Indianapolis 500, and the
Coca-Cola 600, may experience traffic spikes up to 4,000% on race days. To keep
race fans satisfied, Webapper leveraged Adobe ColdFusion
to remove application bottlenecks and combined it with Amazon cloud services
for scalability.

ColdFusion has great performance metrics monitoring
,” says Patrick Quinn, co-founder and chief technology officer at
Webapper. “Based on data from many years of racing events, we were able to
deliver data to the Amazon engineers so they could implement pre-warming
strategies that would anticipate and handle previously unforgiving traffic
peaks on race days.

Before migrating to the cloud, as many as four ColdFusion servers
labored to answer up to 50 requests per second. By combining extensive
bottleneck analysis and tuning inside the new elastic hosting structure, the
team was able to keep request levels on each server below 20 requests per
second by handling large volumes with as many as eight ColdFusion servers at
peak, plus an active/passive Microsoft SQL Server database cluster.

You could also get to hear from Patrick at ColdFusion Summit on October 16-17 in Las Vegas.
