Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/31/16 3:00 PM
The title pretty much says it all. Here is the recording of my presentation a few weeks ago at Node Summit. Enjoy. Rapidly Building APIs with LoopBack By the way, no, I’m not an “offering manager” at IBM. I can barely manage to dress myself in the morning.

Using CommandBox for Lucee [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/30/16 4:00 PM
I think I’ve been very clear about my lack of interest in working with ColdFusion. It served me well for many years, but I’ve moved on to other technologies (Node!) that are more appropriate for me. When I do use ColdFusion, I’ve been trying to stick to Lucee. It’s open source, free, and incredibly light-weight. About the only “code” problem I’ve had with it so far is with cfspreadsheet and even that was fixed after a b

NCDevCon 2016 Session-Using ColdFusion and JSON to read your mind. [+]
NCDevCon | 8/30/16 3:00 PM | 2016
Using ColdFusion and JSON to read your mind. This is a small project I've been playing with. Consumer grade Electroencephalograph (EEG) systems are now relatively cheap and reliable. In this talk, I'll be showing how I used JSON to transmit EEG data to the ColdFusion server, and then store and display the data in real time using CF's real time charting engine ZingCharts.

Blimey, a CFML-centric article [+]

G'day:But it's nothing that interesting. I submitted my answer ("Friday puzzle: my PHP answer") for the Friday Code Puzzle yesterday, deciding to use PHP, given it's what I do for a crust these days, and I could best visualise the solution in PHP.But the puzzle was from a CFML chat group, so I figured I might blow the dust of

ES6 nested imports (Babel+react) [+]
lagod | 8/28/16 9:00 AM | Software development, javascript
With the ES 6 module system, you have a choice of whether to use a single default export: export default DefaultObject or potentially many named exports: export const NondefaultObject = {} You import these slightly differently, but otherwise they work the same:

G'day:I knocked the first version of this out over a beer whilst waiting for my flight to Galway, last night. Then scrapped that as being crap, and rewrote whilst in transit. And then... erm... back-filled my unit tests y/day evening. I feel guilty about not doing proper TDD,  but... so be it. It's got test coverage now.Just on TDD for a second. It was wrong of me not to do the testing first, and whilst I was just about to manufacture an excuse as to why not ("

Breaking: Groovy and Clojure answers for that array-look-up code puzzle [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 8/27/16 10:00 AM | Code Examples, Code Puzzle, Sean Corfield, Tony Junkes
G'day:Well it's not really that breaking really... what I mean is a coupla other people posted some answers to last week's code puzzle after I wrote up the results ("Looking at the code from that code puzzle last week"). I was gonna just append them to the bottom of that earlier article, but hen no-one would see them, and that seemed a bit disrespectful. Also for this blog which is st

G'day:So last Fri I asked this:[...] here's a code puzzle.Rules:You have an array of strings, eg: ['a', 'at', 'cat', 'scat', 'catch']. Return the first value that matches a regex pattern, eg: '.+at' would match cat, scat, catch; but we want cat returned.Do not use any looping statements (eg: do/for/while etc).Bear in

Looking for RIAForge? [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/26/16 10:00 PM
So yeah - I’ve gotten a few emails/IMs/Tweets/passenger pigeons about this today. Apparently is showing something different: So just as a reminder, I stepped down from managing RIAForge last year (“Status of RIAForge”). The ColdFusion team was aware that the domain was expi

G'day:I'm waiting for a blood test and I'm "customer number 649", and they are currently processing "customer number 541". I have dubbed this place Franz Kafka Memorial Hospital.Anyway, I have an hour or two to kill, so writing this quicky on my phone.Last week on the CFML Slack Channel we piloted the notion of a Friday Puzzle. It went quite well, so we're continuing it. Don't be put off by the fact it's the CFML Slack Channel: we actively encourage o

Working with the Disqus API - Deeper Stats (2) [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/25/16 5:00 PM
Welcome to (probably) my final blog post on working with the Disqus API. It’s been fun building my own tools for my comment data, but I’ve scratched this itch enough and will probably not work on it again. My final tool isn’t perfect, but it works for me and provides the stats I wanted (that Disqus themselves did not provide) and as the code is up on Github, folks are free to take it and run. (But if you do, let me know!)

Groovy Gotcha With the Every() Collection Method [+]
Thought Delimited | 8/25/16 1:00 AM | Groovy
In the Groovy programming language, every object that implements the Iterable interface (such as List and Map objects) comes with the every() method.  The every() method takes a closure as an argument and is supposed to evaluate whether every item in the colle
