tvColdBox Lite

06/17/2013 by Luis Majano

If you’re waiting to make the jump from traditional procedural CFML, you want to code without ever editing XML again, or you want to start on a small project without getting in over your head, you need to take a serious look at ColdBox Lite. ColdBox is known for being an enterprise MVC framework with an unrivaled amount of bundled tools and plugins. Well, if ColdBox is a highly trained squadron of architectural mercenaries, ColdBox Lite is a quick-footed ninja assassin who carries out your orders with stealth and efficiency. We’ve taken the core convention-over-configuration MVC goodness and extracted a fully-featured but lightweight framework that is ridiculously simple to get started in. What’s even better is that ColdBox’s modular design allows you add in functionality as you go, and there’s a super-simple upgrade path to the full ColdBox Framework should you decide you need it down the road

tvWhat's a Pull Request? (Contributing to ColdBox)

06/17/2013 by Brad Wood

Perhaps you've asked for a feature on the ColdBox list and been told to submit a pull request. Well, maybe you're thinking, "What on earth is a pull request!" In this session, we'll discuss the ColdBox Git workflow and how you can easily contribute to the project by using GitHub to fork our project, make your own changes to it, and offer them back to the commujnity by submitting a pull request. We'll also show how to enter a ticket in our code tracking system, JIRA. This will be a basic getting-started session that assumes little or no Git or JIRA experience.

tvCriteriaBuilder in Action

06/18/2013 by Joel Watson

With ColdBox's CriteriaBuilder, you can build powerful and dynamic Hibernate criteria queries with very little code. But does it work in real life? To put that question to the test, we'll explore some real life scenarios and see how CriteriaBuilder can help us: * Tackle the dreaded complex search form * Handle result paging * Sort complex results

tvContentBox Modular CMS

06/19/2013 by Luis Majano

ContentBox is an open source modular content application written in CFML that will provide you with blogs, cms, wiki and more. Built on the solid ColdBox Platform and ColdFusion ORM foundations, ContentBox can be extended using modular architecture instead of conforming to a standard application API. Based fully on conventions, event-driven programming and ColdBox modules, your content can scale and customizations now become trivial. Extend and scale based on industry standards and think outside of the box!

tvNginx and CFML Apps

06/19/2013 by Joseph Lamoree

"Nginx (pronounced ""Engine-X"") is a high-performance, cross-platform, open source web server that can replace Apache or IIS and works nicely with CFML web applications. I've been using Nginx in production deployments for several years with great results. It has many features that make it an attractive choice as reverse proxy in front of a CFML engine running in a JEE server such as Tomcat. Using HTTP headers, Nginx can communicate important data about the connected user agent to the application. I intend to provide all the information necessary to deploy Nginx successfully, showing demos and real-world examples.

tvBuilding ContentBox Modules

06/21/2013 by Luis Majano

A key to building extensible and well-organized apps is to think modularly. Not only does this provide a nice separation of concerns in your code, but it also provides high portability and can enable community collaboration. In this session we will discuss the theory behind ContentBox Modules, how and when to use them, why they are important, and how they can change how you architect your applications. We will also look at the ins about outs of creating modules and discuss some of the challenges associated with building them. So if you are new to ColdBox/ContentBox Modules or if you have already started down the path of modular architecture, this session if for you

tvMulti-level Error Handling and Logging

06/21/2013 by Kalen Gibbons

It’s important to monitor and log application issues, but it’s equally important that errors be handled gracefully and in a way that has the least possible impact on the user. This session will leverage ColdFusion and ColdBox methodologies for catching and responding to errors, from minor glitches to fatal issues.

tvTest Driven Learning - Learning Coldbox through Testing

06/21/2013 by Gavin Pickin

Recently I was introduced to the ColdFusion Koans, a project of Ryan Anklam, which is a learning style where you have a riddle, puzzle, or test, and you must learn the answer to pass the test. Koans started in Ruby and Javascript, but we can use them in Coldfusion, and now, lets use them to learn Coldbox too.

It makes something as simple as learning exercises, into a game, where you strive to get the GREEN BAR of success, and in the meantime, you learnt something, through a functional manner, where most of us (especially programmers) learn best.

This session will introduce you to Coldfusion Koans, and a Coldbox addon to the Koans that focuses on Coldbox concepts.

The additional benefit, you will learn a little about MX Unit which is the base for the Coldfusion Koans, and how Test Driven Learning and Test Driven Development "can" make coding fun.
