ColdFusion is one
of the easiest programming environments to use, and enables you to
create powerful server-side web applications very quickly, with much
less code than other technologies such as ASP, PHP etc. ColdFusion
integrates many Internet technologies such as XML, Java, web services
etc, and as such, your applications can be as
small or complex as required.
House of Fusion has been supplying quality content to the ColdFusion
community for as long as there's been a ColdFusion community. If you
have a question, just ask it on the ColdFusion Technical Talk (CF-Talk)
list and you're sure to get an answer. If you have a job to offer or
need one, the ColdFusion Jobs (CF-Jobs) list is the place for you.
There are even more specific Groups / Mailing Lists dealing with topics
such as SQL, Adobe Flex 2.0, Regular Expressions and more.
You can even talk
directly to the site owner, Michael Dinowitz. He's been doing
ColdFusion since before it was released and is more than happy to
handle your high end problems or even do some spot training to help you

The Online Coldfusion Meetup Group has hosted virtual meetings since
2004, to discuss ColdFusion topics. ColdFusion users from anywhere are
free to join and participate since the online community has no bounds.
Feel free to suggest topics and potential speakers. Our goal is that
all meetings are recorded. The recording URL will be offered after each
meeting, in a message to the meetup members.
Welcome guest. To get the most out of our site, please sign up as a
candidate or apply for a recruiter account. Registration is fast and
simple and gives you access to the facilities available to make
ColdFusion is a programming language based on standard HTML (Hyper Text
Markup Language) that is used to write dynamic webpages. It lets you
create pages on the fly that differ depending on user input, database
lookups, time of day or whatever other criteria you dream up!
ColdFusion pages consist of standard HTML tags such as <FONT
SIZE=.+2.>, together with CFML (ColdFusion Markup Language) tags
such as <CFQUERY>, <CFIF> and <CFLOOP>. ColdFusion
was introduced by Allaire in 1996, acquired by Macromedia in a merger
in April 2001, and acquired by Adobe in December 2005. It is currently
in version 7.0.1, but the next version of the product (codenamed
Scorpio) is already in development.
application with ColdFusion is as straightforward as creating a static
Web site. However, in a ColdFusion application you can introduce an
incredible range of functionality that is not available either in
static Web sites or in traditional client/server applications. A
ColdFusion application is very simply a collection of pages, similar to
a static Web site. But unlike the pages in a static Web site, the pages
in a ColdFusion application include the server-side ColdFusion Markup
Language (CFML) in addition to HTML. CFML gives you the ability to
control the behavior of your applications, integrate a wide range of
server technologies, and dynamically generate the content that is
returned to the Web browser.
