- ColdFusion Roadshow Notes: Where is ColdFusion Headed?, Rakshith Naresh
CF is 21 years young
between 2014 (cf11) and 2016 (cf2016), we saw “double digit growth” in CF
adding new customers year over year (consistent over the last few years)
these are customers who have NEVER bought CF before

- ColdFusion Roadshow Recap
Wednesday was the ColdFusion Roadshow in San Francisco. Essentially this was 2 1-hour sessions by Elishia Dvorak and Rakshith Naresh about the current state of ColdFusion, and future plans. Much of the info was similar to what we’d been told at CF Summit and CF Camp last year, but there were some new details as well. (I’ll post my notes from both sessions shortly.) Overall it looks like Adobe has some great ideas planned for the next 2 ColdFusion releases (tentatively scheduled for 2018 and 2020).
- On the CF Alive Podcast
The fine folks at the CF Alive Podcast interviewed me recently. We talked about my upcoming presentation on Dependency Injection at the Into The Box Conference, WireBox, ColdFusion, and various other things.
- New Mura 7 iFrame Plugin
While working on a project with Blue River, Eddie Ballisty and I had to write a Mura plugin for adding iFrames to a Mura website. Blue River was kind enough to let us release the plugin as open source for the rest of the Mura community.
You can download the plugin here: https://github.com/nolanerck/Mura-IFrame-Plugin
- Changes to the Mura Google News Sitemaps Plugin
Just a quick note about my Mura Google News Sitemaps plugin. Per a client request, I’ve added an
“Excluded SubTypes” option to the Settings page. Essentially this is a “short circuit” for the Exclude From News Sitemap field on the Content - Extended Attributes tab.
- SacInteractive - 10 Tips to Save Development Time
This Wednesday at SacInteractive we have “10 Tips to Save Development Time”. Dave Jones was scheduled to give this talk earlier but there was a storm and we lost electricity for the night. Dave was kind enough to reschedule and is giving the talk this coming Wednesday night. Details are below; as always it’s FREE and open to everyone.
- Stupid Mura Tricks - Creating Class Extensions via Code
Continuing with the “Stupid Mura Tricks” series, recently I had to create a SubType/Class Extension, give it an Extended Attribute, then create 30-ish groups of that SubType, all via code. The idea is, we’re developing the site on Dev machines, then testing on a Review server, and deploying to Production later. Rather than making someone manually create all of those things in 3 different environments, we can just run a script as part of the deployment, and have it all automated.
