WBT interviews John Sculley and David Steinberg about InPhonic... and in doing so takes us behind the scenes of a big player in the fast-emerging "wireless management" space.

WBT Interviews…XcelleNet's CEO, Joan Herbig

WBT's editor-in-chief Robert Diamond recently asked Joan Herbig about her role in a company that has seen explosive growth in the past year thanks to Afaria, the popular solution for enterprises faced with managing a large number of mobile devices from a central location.

Along with amazing individuals like New York City area volunteers who, as you read this, will undoubtedly still be s... (more)

Where Do We Go from Here?

In this month's issue, as we start the fifth year of ColdFusion Developer's Journal, we've paused to look back at the past. Charlie Arehart wrote the retrospective cover story for this month, and I think you'll enjoy his trip down memory lane, starting back in version 1.0 of ColdFusion (1995), advancing to our first issue (1999), and stopping to look at all the major highlights that happened in between and since. How well do you know your CF trivia? Do you remember the fist logo? Do you remember when ColdFusion was the Cold Fusion Application Server (our editorial staff loved wh... (more)

Red Skies Smiling at Me...

No, that's not a misprint, and I haven't lost my mind quite yet. (Some friends might tell you differently, as might the leprechaun in my closet, but we'll save that for a future editorial.) Red Sky is the code name for the next ColdFusion MX release - a FREE (one of the greatest words in the English language) updater being released this summer that helps take CFMX up to new levels of greatness. We've been playing with it here at CFDJ for the past few weeks as part of the beta program, and I'm proud to report that SYS-CON.com (putting our servers where our mouths are) will also b... (more)
