The high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists from CEOs on down – including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.




@ThingsExpo Power Panel | The World's Many IoTs: Which Are the Most Important?
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.

Lunch Power Panel | Microservices & IoT- Moderated by Jason Bloomberg
In this Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, panelists Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana; Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks; and Troy Topnik, ActiveState's Technical Product Manager; and Otis Gospodnetic, founder of Sematext; peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.


Everyone is excited about ColdFusion 8; the blogs have been buzzing, feedback has been superb, lots of attendees expressed relief and gratitude at seeing such a compelling ColdFusion built in this new Adobe era - no complaints, no negative feedback, just real enthusiasm and excitement....
The next major version of ColdFusion, code-named 'Blackstone,' is getting ready to ship, and by gauging customer and partner reactions thus far, we have a winner on our hands.
MAX 2004 easily ranked as one of our best conferences ever. Between product announcements, the sessions, increased attendance, and the New Orleans scene, it set a new standard for us to beat next year.
This column started life as a series of e-mail threads that then morphed into blog postings at www.forta.com/blog. As these points are important and need to be articulated frequently, I morphed them yet again into a column. Enjoy.
In my last column we looked at using ColdFusion Components to abstract database access, essentially divorcing presentation code from anything database specific. As you will recall, the benefit of this was that when a database change occurred (a column being renamed, for example), prese...
I've been discussing ColdFusion Components on and off since we first introduced them - which was in ColdFusion MX - and even dedicated my entire keynote time slot at our 2002 conference to CFCs, as well as covering them extensively in prior CFDJ columns. But, apparently, many users hav...
Macromedia Flex is a brand new server product, one that is poised to forever change the way we coders think about building rich and engaging user interfaces. Yes, I did say 'server.' No, Flex does not compete with ColdFusion. Yes, Flex and ColdFusion are designed to work together.
Way back in the early Allaire days, registered ColdFusion users were given access to 'fuel packs', product add-ons (in the form of custom tags) that may or may not have become part of the core product later. In fact, tags like , , and all started life as fuel packs, and later became p...
Conventional wisdom dictates that code, all code, be written with portability in mind. After all, you wouldn't want to have to revisit and rewrite code when moving between platforms or environments, would you? And while I do believe that coding for portability is a good thing in genera...
Uttering the dreaded 'D' word in front of a room of hard-core ColdFusion developers is a brave act indeed. Hating Dreamweaver and berating its deficiencies has become a popular pastime among ColdFusion purists, so what I'm about to say may get me in all sorts of trouble.
It's been about seven years since I first inscribed my '10 Commandments of ColdFusion Development' for my first ColdFusion book, and four years since they were last revised (yes, my Ten Commandments are not as omnipresent as their more famous namesake). ColdFusion has changed much over...
ColdFusion developers rely on session state management and the SESSION scope extensively. But as applications grow in complexity, so do the number of SESSION variables, and the risk of overwriting or misusing them.
One of the most used tags in CFML is . It is definitely the most used of all the Internet protocol tags, and as one of the original CFML tags (it was actually one of the DBML tags and originally named ), it has also been slowly enhanced and updated with each new release of ColdFusi...
It's been over a year since Macromedia released the most important and ambitious ColdFusion ever, ColdFusion MX. Considering the scope of the undertaking, ColdFusion MX has been an incredible success.
By now, every ColdFusion developer knows, or should know, that ColdFusion MX sits on top of underlying Java architecture. Some ColdFusion developers have even been brave enough to attempt ColdFusion/Java integration, creating applications that leverage Java code where appropriate.
Most Web-based applications operate in real time. Add an article to a database and it shows up immediately on content pages. Update a user address and the new contact information is available immediately. Add or remove an employee and the phone directory is correct when next viewed. Re...
I receive lots of e-mail from lots of ColdFusion developers, and make every effort to respond to each and every one of them. Knowing the problems that ColdFusion developers are attempting to solve helps me know what topics to write and speak about. Indeed, the inspiration for most of m...
Several months ago I wrote a column entitled 'Undocumented ColdFusion MX - 1,' (CFDJ, Vol. 4, issue 9). I appended a '1' to the title in anticipation of there being a '2' at some later date. Well, that time has come. That column (which apparently was highly controversial and upset quit...
ColdFusion MX is fast approaching its first birthday, and what a first year this has been. A completely brand new ColdFusion, incredible new features and technologies, and even versions that run on J2EE servers on all sorts of platforms (including the oft requested Mac OSX). Which make...
Which is faster, or ? Which is faster, CFML or ? Which is faster... ? If you're a ColdFusion developer, chances are that you've asked (or have been asked) these questions and others like them.
There is a phenomenon that appears to be unique to our industry - something I call buzzword du jour. On a regular basis a new buzzword (usually accompanied by a series of acronyms) appears on the front pages of the trade rags proclaiming to be 'the future' - the message being 'jump on ...
There was once a time, not that long ago, when I seemed to be spending a significant portion of my life explaining why ColdFusion was indeed worthy of consideration even though other products were free. Then I stopped hearing that objection for the most part, and life was good (well, b...
HTML-based data entry is a pain, both for developers and for end users. There's no way to sugarcoat it, HTML forms as used today are pathetic. Sure, there are new form specifications on the way, but they are not yet in use, browsers don't support them, and they are still unproven entit...
I have been writing and talking about ColdFusion components since before ColdFusion MX shipped. After I explained them in detail in two recent columns (CFDJ, Vol. 4, issues 6, 7), quite a few of you asked for practical examples of when and where they should be used. So, once again, let...
Discovering undocumented features in your favorite application is always something of a thrill. This is especially true when those features expose little nuggets of functionality that you can leverage in your own code. And so, as promised in my last column, I'm going to introduce you t...
The introduction of user-defined functions (UDFs for short) was the most requested and anticipated event in the ColdFusion 5 era - developers desperately wanted to be able to extend CFML, using not just tags, but functions as well. I first introduced UDFs a year or so ago (CFDJ, Vol. 3...
Last month I introduced you to ColdFusion Components - CFCs for short. Following a brief introduction to the world of objects, we looked at CFCs and their syntax, and simple calling conventions using . This month we'll continue this topic.
In the May issue of CFDJ (Vol. 4, issue 5) I introduced you to ColdFusion MX - the just-released ColdFusion upgrade that is nothing short of revolutionary. As I explained in that article, CFMX features lots of incredible new technologies and features. But the one I think is most import...
Have you ever seen a ColdFusion error page - the bordered box on a white background that basically says someone (or something) messed up? I'm sure you have, as I'm sure your users have too. Errors, and error messages, are an unfortunate fact of development life. But while you may have ...
Databases and database access are fundamental elements of just about every ColdFusion application ever created. Database access makes applications real and live and dynamic and valuable, but it's also a major source of performance problems and a primary potential security target. In th...
Barely a week goes by without someone asking me about ColdFusion and search engine-friendly URLs. This is one of those topics that ColdFusion developers have been discussing for a long time - I first started a thread on this subject on the Allaire Developer's Forum close to five years ...
With all the talk and buzz surrounding Neo, it's important to keep in mind that ColdFusion 5 is still a relatively new product, one that many users have yet to take full advantage of. We're proud of ColdFusion 5, and rightfully so. It's the most reliable, most scalable, and most powerf...
At last month's Developers' Conference in Orlando I was fortunate to be one of the first to demonstrate Neo, the next major version of ColdFusion. Macromedia (and earlier, Allaire) had been dropping little Neo-related tidbits for quite a while now - whetting our appetites with glimpses...
ColdFusion 5 is a great product, so much so that I've dedicated six of my last seven columns to introducing and analyzing its new features and technologies. ColdFusion 5 is mature, fast, reliable, and robust, and with its release Macromedia has demonstrated a definite commitment to CF ...
For ColdFusion to work properly lots of bits and pieces have to be in place and functioning correctly. Web servers need to be up and running, database servers need to be accessible, any external components need to be reachable, and, of course, ColdFusion must be functioning properly. ...
At last year's Developer's Confer-ence I presented a session on creating n-tier (or multitier) applications in ColdFusion, explaining how tiered applications were more manageable and reusable. So why bring this up almost a year later? Well, a project I was working on recently forced me...
I hope that all of you are enjoying your summer and getting in plenty of R&R. If you aren't, I hope you have at least upgraded to the new CF Server 5.0.
More ColdFusion applications are running on intranets and extranets than just about anywhere else. This is not surprising - as ColdFusion makes data access and reporting so simple it is a natural fit for applications in these environments. And, as such, data reporting is one area that ...
This month I'd like to continue exploring ColdFusion 5 - this time concentrating on a radical new feature known as Query of Queries - a feature that lets you treat query results as if they were database tables. Intrigued? Read on.
Support for user-defined functions is easily the most requested and anticipated enhancement to the ColdFusion Markup Language (and the announcement of this feature at last year's Developer Conference was met with an applause that can only be called thunderous).

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
