Adobe ColdFusion remains one of today’s significant Web Services tools and frameworks, and stands to become even more important as a possible primary tool for cloud development as well. As important as ColdFusion is and continues to become, we thought it would be a good idea to tap the leading authority on ColdFusion, the Fusion Authority. We asked this community to compile the most important issues in their developer and user experiences into one single volume—an anthology of the most current technical articles published in the Fusion Authority Quarterly Updates.

In it, you’ll get the following:

  • The best and brightest ColdFusion expertise available today, from inside and outside of Adobe
  • The most up-to-date content with the latest releases of ColdFusion
  • Case studies and instances where ColdFusion is used in cloud-based development

Rather than take a soup-to-nuts approach that covers every single topic, including those that most people have learned already, this book takes specific items of interest and explains them so that you can hit the ground running, rather than having to wait until you’ve read the entire book.

What you’ll learn

  • Why ColdFusion is important for your Web Services and cloud application development
  • How the latest versions of ColdFusion can build cloud applications
  • How to integrate the latest ColdFusion has to offer with Flex and other Adobe tools in your workflow
  • How to use ColdFusion in pragmatic ways through examples, illustrations, and case studies
  • How to use ColdFusion best practices, testing techniques, and more
