ColdFusion (CFML) is like a healthy long-term relationship. You love it a lot in the beginning, and over time you grow to love it more and more. You’re always on the same page, and you work together to make great things. It just works, and sometimes you can’t explain why it works so well–but it does. In fact, CFML is loved by thousands all over the globe. Overtime, your relationship may change as you both grow, but CFML continues to rock your world.
Here are some conferences to remind you why CFML is still amazing today:
