Speaking at cfCamp

Pleased to say I’ll be speaking on CFWheels 2.x and the new CLI at CFCamp, 20-21 October 2016. Would be great to catch up with people – do come and say hello (and indeed, come to my session!)

Session Details:

CFWheels 2.x and the new CLI

CFWheels is an open source CFML framework inspired by Ruby on Rails that provides fast application development, a great organisation system for your code, and is just plain fun to use. One of our biggest goals is for you to be able to get up and running with CFWheels quickly.

We want for you to be able to learn it as rapidly as it is to write applications with it. CFWheels has a long history, with the first commit over 10 years ago. Over 3000 commits later, this talk will take a look at what’s new in CFWheels 2.x, which brings huge leaps forward with tonnes of new features integrated into the core.

Along with 2.x comes the new CLI commands for CommandBox, which allow real “rails-style” scaffolding, complete with database migrations, controller, model and view templating, ability to run test suites from the command line, and much, much more.

Even if you’re not familiar with CFWheels, this talk will aim to give you enough to get going on your first app at breakneck speed!
