An intro to Web Applications with ColdFusion - presented by Justin Treher, a ColdFusion Developer and Manager of the Central Penn ColdFusion Users Group

Justin will give an introduction to application programming. Perhaps, as a designer, the applications department has always been a mystery that you’d like to understand. Maybe you’d like to learn a few simple ways to go one step beyond HTML and CSS. Adobe ColdFusion is a Rapid Application Development (RAD) web server platform progressing into its 9th generation. The rapid part means what you’d expect, you can do stuff a lot faster and easier than with PHP, ASP.NET, JSP etc. It’s great for beginners and those who don’t want to learn a lot of programming mumbo jumbo. However, once you go over the cliff, you’ll find the possibilities for advanced programming and website engineering are endless. Fortunately, Justin won’t bore you with those intimate details; you’ll see how you can quickly get a ColdFusion website up and running with a simple Microsoft Access database and learn a general introduction to web application programming.

Upcoming Meeting Dates:
