A book that teaches rather than references, and fills the marketplace gap for a beginning-level ColdFusion resource.

  • Tutorial-based format with numerous case studies.
  • Three-point visual approach: discussion/example code/screen capture.
  • Multiple sample ColdFusion scripts and output are presented per topic.
Macromedia's ColdFusion is a popular choice for making dynamic Web pages coupled to easy-to-maintain databases. Using ColdFusion requires a fairly broad knowledge base, though the beginning CF developer need only have a background in HTML. From his teaching experience, the author has found that students learn best by seeing several sample CF scripts and the output those scripts produce. This approach helps students set up the associations between the scripted instructions and what those instructions actually do. The author offers lots of example code that is well-commented, is discussed thoroughly prior to its introduction, and is associated with a screen capture that shows the code's output. This three-point methodology links how-to discussions with actual CF output in a visual, comprehendible manner. In the case studies, readers learn to build a corporate intranet directory, a conference registration site, and an online store. The book covers all important concepts and tools in ColdFusion and provides the user with the requisite skills to become a proficient CF developer.
