This week Dave and Scott discuss a quiet release update to CFBuilder. Then they talk about Adam Tuttle's new book on REST as well as the difficulties he had when attempting to switch from Adobe CF to Railo.
They then discuss a recent post where a developer was looking for advice on how to upgrade from ColdFusion 6 to ColdFusion 11. Dave and Scott have definite opinions on the subject.
Dave talks about a switch for number generation that speeds the CF server up exponentionally!
Finally, Scott asks that if you were to have the opportunity to give one piece of programming advice to your younger self, what would it be.
This week Dave and Scott have an update on the Target security breach, discuss Synergy (using one mouse and keyboard on multiple systems), the UBlock ad blocking Chrome plug-in, the Cold Fusion Builder update, voting on CF bugs, Scott hassling newbs on Stack Overflow, solving problems with Source Control and the new Taffy update.
