So Much to Say...

So Much to Say...

When I first began my outline for this month's editorial, I realized I couldn't possibly fit everything in. With topics ranging from the excitement of the Allaire Conference, whose phenomenal success and fast sellout is a testament to the growing success of ColdFusion, to the amazing articles in this month's issue, there was a lot to cover. However, I'll do my best to touch on each one.

ColdFusion Enters Prime Time
The recent Allaire Developer Conference generated quite a buzz on the current state and the bright future of the ColdFusion industry. I couldn't attend this year, but I've been getting incredible feedback from other members of the CFDJ editorial team. Everyone I've spoken with says Allaire did a great job, and they can't wait till next year when it's bound to be an even bigger event at a much larger venue. The workshops were fantastic and one need only look at the wide range of topics covered to appreciate how ColdFusion is most definitely coming into its own. Everyone had a great time - next year nothing will stand in the way of my being there.

The Best Issue Yet!
Now onto the magazine....At CFDJwe try to have a mix of articles on a variety of industry topics and this issue is definitely indicative of that. Michael MacDonald has written a great article on creating dynamic graphics for the Web; I'm sure many of us could use a better method for this process. Stuart Newman writes about banner rotation and tracking, which most sites are utilizing these days since advertising is paying for the path of the Web - and paying many of our salaries too! David Schwartz has a walk-through on adding a dynamic table viewer and query-by-example engine to CF applications. Jerry Bradenbaugh demonstrates the creation of a Web-based e-mail application that uses only one CF template - not an easy task. There's an article on Spectra by Anthony Krinsky, and much more to make this issue of CFDJ the best yet - enjoy!

Good News from the Publisher of CFDJ
