ICYMI - Live Stream Series - Koding with the Kiwi + Friends

Special Guest - Kai Koenig - Talking Databases, ORM, and Database Testing
Friday, June 17th, at 1pm PDT
In this video, Gavin the Kiwi, kidnaps Kai Koenig for this weeks Koding with the Kiwi + Friends. After a lot of technical difficulties, Gavin thinks this week's videos should have been called Koding Disasters with the Kiwi + Hecklers.

Before this session, Gavin broke his computer, restarted it, froze zoom, and once that was up and running, started the session, only to find the server wouldn't launch. After debugging for a few minutes off camera, the group decides to get this debugging on tape, and they work through fixing the server, and then talk about Databases, Migrations, Testing with Databases.

They create some migrations, create some tables, drop some tables, and then discuss the next step, using queries, vs ORM, and how you might architect your handlers, services and models.

From Slack re Adobe Certified Professional
The Adobe Certified Professional: Adobe ColdFusion cert is a totally different, MUCH more difficult and comprehensive certification than the CF Specialist previously offered.
Mark Takata, Nolan and Dave F + the CF engineering team, Elishia and Kishore all spent a week together building the new one and it is HARD.
I highly recommend it as a test of your skills, I guarantee everyone will learn something new.

Yes, but there's also over 100 hours of video to go over before the 1 day lecture + cert. So you watch videos, sit in class, then take the exam there. It is no joke, definitely challenging, but super satisfying to pass.
Plus you get access to those videos for a year, which is nice for going back and reviewing things down the line.

6/21/22 - Blog - Daniel Garcia - Ortus Solutions - Getting started with ColdBox Debugger

The ColdBox Debugger (cbDebugger) module is “a light-weight performance monitor and profiling tool for ColdBox applications” that can be used to see what is going on with your site. It can monitor any ColdBox site, from frontend sites with views to REST API sites. It can also track many things and give insights into requests, CacheBox caches, database activity (including cborm, quick, qb, and Adobe CF 2018+). It has also been recently updated to use Alpine JS as well as other enhancements. If you have not used ColdBox Debugger in a while, it is time to take another look.

6/21/22 - Blog - Ben Nadel - Considering A Stale-While-Revalidate Pattern To Caching In ColdFusion

In a recent episode of Syntax.fm, Scott and Wes discussed HTTP caching headers. From their discussion, I learned that there is an experimental value called, stale-while-revalidate. And, while this post isn't about HTTP caching, their discussion got me thinking about different ways in which I might manage a server-side cache of data that needs to be kept in-sync with a remote data source. I wanted to do some noodling of what a "stale while revalidate" workflow might look like in ColdFusion.

6/20/22 - Blog - Peter Amiri - CFWheels - CFWheels HTMX Plugin published

A few weeks ago I published a Todo app using CFWheels on the backend and HTMX to provide the interactivity on the front end to make the app look and feel like a full blown SPA app. As I was developing that app I ran into a few things that I wish we had to make development with HTMX a little easier. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

6/20/22 - Blog - Brad Wood - In response to Ben Nadel - Output ANSI formatting in your server log

Ben Nadel recently asked me on Twitter if he could put colored text in his server’s console log… and the response didn’t fit in twitters little box.

6/20/22 - Blog - Peter Amiri - CFWheels - Wheels CLI matures to Version 1.0

It’s hard to believe it took so long to get here but modern CFML development has come a long way thanks to tools like CommandBox and ForgeBox. The Wheels CLI is built as a CommandBox module and wouldn’t have even been possible without the support of the fine folks at Ortus Solutions.
The first commit to the repo for this project was committed back in July of 2016. It’s taken a while, that’s an understatement, to get here but Wheels itself jumped to 2.0, CommandBox matured, and we were able to put the plumbing in place to support the communication between the CLI and the running server. With nearly 300 commits in the repo, 25 commands in the CLI, and over 20 pages of documentation, it’s now time to take the alpha/beta label off send this baby out into the world.
Note: Wheels CLI is a CommandBox module that you can use to work with the framework (generate scaffolding, tests, etc)

6/20/22 - Blog - Ben Nadel - Playing With Java Pattern's Named Capture Groups In ColdFusion

In yesterday's post on the new jreExtract() method in JRegEx.cfc, I was aliasing the Regular Expression (RegEx) capture groups with human-friendly labels as part of my demo-output. This reminded me that the Java Pattern class added named capture groups in Java 7 (circa 2010); and, I've yet to ever try them out. As such, I thought it was high-time to give named capture groups a try in ColdFusion.

6/19/22 - Blog - Ben Nadel - Adding jreExtract() To Pluck Captured Groups Using Regular Expressions In ColdFusion

I love Regular Expressions. I use them probably every day in some capacity. And, I've loved having my JRegEx.cfc project to simplify many pattern-based interactions. Today, I'm adding one more tool to that toolbox: jreExtract(). The jreExtract() method matches a Java Regular Expression against an input String and returns a Struct of the captured groups. Sometimes, I want to use a single pattern-match to pluck-out parts of a string in ColdFusion.

6/17/22 - Blog / Video - Ben Nadel - Ask Ben: Extending A ColdFusion Session On A Long-Lived Page

Hi Ben, I am trying to learn ColdFusion and have a question. I hope you can help me. I have an application where a user logs into a portal. Session variables are set to time out in 30 mins. But, is it possible to extend the session if the user keeps using the page. For the application, even if the user is moving the page up and down and making some interaction with the page, the session still expires. Thank you so much in advance.!

Blog: Getting started with ColdBox Debugger

The ColdBox Debugger (cbDebugger) module is “a light-weight performance monitor and profiling tool for ColdBox applications” that can be used to see what is going on with your site. It can monitor any ColdBox site, from frontend sites with views to REST API sites. It can also track many things and give insights into requests, CacheBox caches, database activity (including cborm, quick, qb, and Adobe CF 2018+). It has also been recently updated to use Alpine JS as well as other enhancements. If you have not used ColdBox Debugger in a while, it is time to take another look.
