Recordings from ColdFusion Developer Week 2017

If you didn't hear, you can get free access to view the recordings of the Adobe ColdFusion Developer Week (devweek) which was held July 31-Aug 4 and offered several useful sessions.

And unlike previous Adobe cfdevweeks, which often involved non-Adobe presenters (including myself), this year's sessions were all from members of the Adobe CF team, on these topics:

  • The now and the next of Adobe ColdFusion (you'll have to suffer through a mistaken use of background music the whole hour)
  • API Economy: Realizing The Business Value of APIs Through Adobe API Management (no music in this or subsequent recordings)
  • Design of Rest API and Rest in ColdFusion
  • Upgrade to CF 2016
  • Finding security vulnerabilities in your codebase using security analyzer
  • Load Balancing, Scalability and Failover with ColdFusion Clustering
  • PDF enhancements in ColdFusion 2016
  • Language enhancements in CF 2016
  • Scale with ColdFusion 2016

About the very unfortunate background music in the first session, I have reached out to Rakshith today to ask if he may want to repeat it on the Online ColdFusion Meetup that I host, and we could offer that recording then as an alternative to the original.

Of course, the availability of the recordings is not new new info, as they were released last month and mentioned in that post I link to above. But I noticed in doing a google search today for "coldfusion devweek 2017 recordings", the first result was my 2012 post on the recordings of that year's devweek. Doh! So I wanted to offer this update in the hopes of replacing that in searches (fortunately, the Adobe post does appear next for me). I also just added "2012" to the title of that older post, as well as a link to this one, to perhaps also help avoid confusion.

And if you're interested in seeing the 2017 Adobe CF Roadmap (about what's new recently, what's coming in 2018 and 2020, as well as support timelines), Adobe happened to blog about that today as well. The sessions above (especially the first) elaborate much more on these than the 3-page PDF with a few bullet points each on CF2018 and CF2020. You'll see I pointed this out in the comments there, and I offered a link to the recordings. And it was in trying to find that which led to the motivation to create this post above. :-)

Slides available for my two recent talks: Hidden gems in CF10 & About ColdFusion 10 on Tomcat

If you're interested in checking out the slides for my two most recent talks, they are now available online:

These were offered recently at cf.objective() and the SOTR/CF10 European Tour events, as I had announced a couple of weeks ago.

These are just PDFs of the slides for now, no recordings. But as those who have seen me talk before know, I tend to offer a lot of detail in my slides, so that they do stand well alone (against the modern fashion of slides that are mostly just pictures).

Sure, I could do more pictures and offer slide notes. It's not that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, just that it takes a lot more patience! :-) I may modify these presentations that way, in fact, for future presentations of them. In fact, I will be blogging shortly about the next planned presentation of them for the Adobe CF 10 Developer Week coming up in June.

BTW, apologies to any folks from the two events who had looked for the PDF for the Tomcat talk previously. Somehow I had failed to offer a link to the PDF on the presentations page, even though I was updating and uploading new variations of it both before and after the events. Darn.
