I Just Contributed CFExecute to CFScript-Community-Components

A few weeks back, Adam Tuttle posted about his new project to get CFScript service CFCs created for all of the appropriate missing tags. It’s a great project, I tweeted about it. So did others. But I wanted to do more. So today I made a contribution. I added CFExecute support for CFScript.

It’s a pretty mundane thing to add, and it took me about an hour from start to finish. All I had to do was:

  • Fork the CFScript-Community-Components to my github account.
  • Clone it to my Mac
  • Write the code.
  • Push changes back to my repository.
  • Make a pull request for my changes to be added back to CFScript-Community-Components.

That might sound like a lot, but I did it entirely within one hour. It was a great learning experience as I had never forked and pull requested someone’s project before. That being said I couldn’t have done it without GitHub for Mac, which I highly recommend.

Introduction to ColdFusion – Winners

I finally have winners for my ColdFusion Developer Week software giveaway. (I had to wait for them to both respond, letting me use their names and whatnot.)

They are:
Wade Stockton, who referred Erik Stant.

I asked Wade why he made the referral. He said:

I work as a contractor for the Air Force. Erik is one of the troops I work with. He has done some Java web work in the past and was interested in CF but needed a kick start to get going. Part of it was selfish on my part, I need help! I have had a couple of really big wins for CF in the shop lately and the requests are piling up.

Jump in there Erik; ease his burden.

Both will receive copies of Master Collection.

That’s right, even though I said I wasn’t going to offer suites I did. The reason I did was the wonderful response I got. I had a great number of referrals to the session, and I thank you. We had a total of 360 signups with over 200 attendees for an Introduction to ColdFusion session.

Thanks to everyone who spread the word.

 

ColdFusion Week = Free Software for Someone

This is yet another reminder that I am giving away free software for my session next week for ColdFusion Developer week.

Refresher on the rules:

  • Refer a ColdFusion newbie to my session by email
  • CC me on the email (terry.ryan@adobe.com)
  • They must attend
  • If they do, you are both on my listI will select one pair from my list
  • I will send both of you your choice of a single CS 5.5 product (suites excluded)

My session is an intro to ColdFusion. The idea is to bring new people to the fold. Help out, send me your newbies, your skeptics, your doubters, your whatever. You both might get free software.

To those who have, I thank you.

Reminder about ColdFusion Developer Week

Last week I posted about a little giveaway I am holding for ColdFusion Developer Week. Just to recap, the rules are:

  • Refer a ColdFusion newbie to my session by email
  • CC me on the email (terry.ryan@adobe.com)
  • They must attend
  • If they do, you are both on my list
  • I will select one pair from my list
  • I will send both of you your choice of a single CS 5.5 product (suites excluded)

I got a couple of questions on this, so let me make things clear; a newbie can be:

  • Unfamiliar with ColdFusion
  • Heard of, but never used ColdFusion
  • Used, but just getting started with ColdFusion

If you think they can benefit from a “Why use ColdFusion session?” I’d love for you to invite them. You can invite more than one person. Each person you invite, who attends, gives you another chance at the giveaway.

ColdFusion Developer Week

Thanks to the organizational skill of one Simon Free, there is going to be a ColdFusion Developer week September 12-16th.

The week will be full of content and is meant for users all across the spectrum, ColdFusion newbies to experts. Check out the content, see what fits you, and refer your friends.

I’m going to have a little giveaway to sweeten the pot. I’m going to give away 2 copies of any CS 5.5 product (so no suites, just single apps.) The details:

  • Refer a ColdFusion newbie to my session by email
  • CC me on the email (terry.ryan@adobe.com)
  • They must attend
  • If they do you are both on my list
  • I will select one pair from my list
  • I will send both of you your choice of a single CS 5.5 product (suites excluded).

Getting Started with Web Application Development Using ColdFusion

Mon., September 12, 2011 10:00 AM US/Pacific

What is ColdFusion and why would you want to use it? This session will answer that and show off some of the simple power of ColdFusion. By the end you should have a clear answer of what CF is, what it can do for you, and why so many ColdFusion developers are passionate about this tool.

CFAIR Synchronization Resources

I talked earlier today as part of Adobe Developer Week on synching up data between ColdFusion and AIR (mobile) clients.

I referenced a whole bunch of pages in my talk, and wanted to link them all out at once.

Finally source code from github for the demos I showed in my session:

Hope this helps!
