CF Advisor And CF Fast Track

CF Advisor And CF Fast Track

We've got some exciting news to share with you before you get into this information-packed issue of ColdFusion Developer's Journal.

CF Advisor
SYS-CON Media, the leading publisher of i-technology magazines and the parent company of CFDJ, recently aquired CF Advisor and has added it to its online stable of Web sites. No changes will be made to the Web site, which will continue in its role as an independent ColdFusion developer's resource. Complete with news, tips, feature articles, a job bank, training resources, a CF hosting guide, and discussion areas, CF Advisor is one of the leaders in the online world of ColdFusion development.

Rod Bicknell will continue in his role as editor-in-chief of the online publication. He's done a great job in the past, and we're all looking forward to working with him in the future as CF Advisor continues to grow alongside CFDJ.

Also, look for all of the great CF Advisor content coming soon on CD via JDJStore.com. A perfect companion to the CFDJ Complete Works Archives CD as a fully functional ColdFusion resource right at your fingertips.

ColdFusion Fast Track at JDJEdge 2001
Also happening behind the scenes for those not yet aware, we've announced the final technical program for the ColdFusion Fast Track, complete with cutting-edge technical sessions, to be held in New York City, September 23-26, 2001. Get all the information you need at www.sys-con.com/coldfusionedge. Updated daily with the latest conference news and announcements, including details of the ColdFusion Technology Pavilion on the show's exhibit floor, it's worth checking out. If you can make it in September, you won't be disappointed. Hope to see you there!

On to This Month's Issue...
Coauthors Randy Drisgill and Jason Montilla, along with Dennis Baldwin - a two-punch combo - have contributed remarkable pieces on using ColdFusion with Flash. The first piece, "ColdFusion-Driven Flash Content" (Part 1 of 2), covers the advantages of using Flash, then dives into the basics of getting ColdFusion data into Flash. Part 2, in an upcoming issue, will teach you how to send data in and out of CF and Flash using a database. For those eager to jump right in, "ColdFusion Meets Flash" goes into the basics of loading in variables from ColdFusion, querying database outputs, and moving data out to create a dynamic navigation menu. Both pieces provide solid foundations for those new to Flash. If you haven't used Flash before, or integrated it with ColdFusion, you'll be surprised by two things: (1) how easy it is, and (2) how much better you can make your site look by using it.

The balance of the issue contains a wealth of knowledge as well. "Creating Intelligent 404 Pages," by Mark Carson, covers not only specifying custom 404 error pages, but also creating a page in CF to e-mail you automatically and log the error as it happens. Curtis Schlak covers the creation and use of Web wizards; Kelly Brown writes on how to send HTML e-mail messages complete with the ColdFusion code. As always, Bruce Van Horn's "Ask the Training Staff" answers your latest .

All this plus the usual columns from Ben Forta and others....See you in September!
