Dates announced for all six remaining ColdFusion/CFML conferences, and more Adobe CF Roadshow events

Did you know there will again be 6 CF/CFML-related conferences this year? (An update: I should have said "six remaining", as there was also Muracon which happened last month. I've modified the title to be more clear.)

I had posted last month about the upcoming CF/CFML-related conferences and some other events which had BY THEN announced their dates (3 of them). I mentioned the other 3 that would typically happen, and indeed since then, those 3 have also announced their dates. And Adobe has announced still more CF Roadshow events.

So here's all the current detail on all 6 remaining CF/CFML conferences (their name, description, date, location, link, and info on call for speakers).

The 100 most interesting posts on the Adobe ColdFusion blog, the past 3 years

The Adobe ColdFusion team blog often has really some interesting content, but I find that some people are either not aware of the blog or just don't keep up on it, or perhaps they have trouble finding something they saw before or maybe heard was there.

So here I present what I feel are the 100 (technically, 105) most interesting/useful posts made there over the past 3 years (2014-16), offering information about CF and CFML which should be valuable to readers for years to come.

Why you should think twice about leaving on the "public JRE" option of the Java JDK installer

This is a follow-up to a post I did in late 2014, CF911: 'Help! I've updated the JVM which ColdFusion uses, and now it won't start!'. In that post, I listed about a dozen common problems that befall people who try to update the JVM that CF is using (and it and this post apply as well to Lucee or BlueDragon, or indeed any Java application server).

In this post, I want to elaborate on one more common mistake. Well, mistake may be too strong word. It's about a default option when you run a Java JDK installer (see the other post for more on JDK vs JRE options).

In short, I make the case here for why you should NOT let the JDK installer implement its "public jre" option.
