Jeff Porten commented on my post about Getting Started Developing in ColdFusion and challenged me to show him how “does [ColdFusion] blow the doors off my existing toolset.” So I figured I would talk in greater length about the features of ColdFusion that made me a loyal customer and makes me believe in it enough to base my livelihood on it.
I think there are 3 major areas where ColdFusion blows away other toolsets that solve similar issues:
- ColdFusion makes hard things very easy
- ColdFusion plays very well with other technologies
- ColdFusion can play many roles in a web application stack.
Instead of turning this post into a huge treatise on ColdFusion, I’m going to run a short series on these entries over the next week.
