Kinky Solutions | 2/19/18 2:00 PM | HTML / CSS, Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel looks at the HTML5 Anchor "download" attribute, which can get the user to download an HREF location using the given filename. This can also be used to download the Data URI representation of an HTML Canvas object (for fun and profit!)....

Mura CMS Blog | 2/16/18 8:00 PM | Mura 7, Webinar
Do you ever try talking to non-developers but only get blank states? For devs like you, it sometimes can feel like you speak a totally different language from everyone else in the enterprise.

Building a Text-Based Adventure in Vue.js (2) [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/16/18 12:00 AM
Yesterday I posted a proof of concept of a simple text-based adventure game built in Vue.js. While it was incredibly simple (and a bit broken, sorry), I made some progress in updating the engine today that I thought would be cool to share. Pretty much nothing visually changed, but I made some structural changes that I think will go a long way to improving the core game. One of the first

ColdFusion SFTP and FTPS Secure Connection Failure [+]
cf_gems | 2/15/18 8:00 PM | ColdFusion Security, ColdFusion
I have seen a lot more people asking questions about making SFTP or FTPS secure connections from ColdFusion using the <CFFTP> tag. They are trying to figure out why they cannot make a connection. Often the error is "Algorithm negotiation fail" or "Connection Error". People are posting their questions on many support forums including Adobes forums and their new ColdFusion Community Portal. This is a problem pe

Happy 15 [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/15/18 3:00 PM
Fifteen years ago today (ok, fifteen years and a few days) I launched this little blog with the idea of trying to help others as well as myself. I've long believed that if I struggled with something then I needed to write it down to help myself remember what I figured out. That strategy has served me well I think and nearly 6000 posts later (currently at 5939 actually) I'm still enjoying this little mas

Kinky Solutions | 2/15/18 2:00 PM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel shares his experiment in attempting to recreate the InVision App user interface using the Angular 5 router. The hope here was to learn more about the Router by using it in an extremely non-trivial manner. It took four-and-a-half months; but, it was tote's worth it!...

Building a Text-Based Adventure in Vue.js [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/14/18 5:00 PM
Happy Valentines Day! Today I'm showing my love for Vue.js by building something totally impractical and fun - a text-based adventure in Vue.js. As a child of 80s, I grew up playing text-based games from Infocom. In fact, to this day I still say that some of the most interesting games ever created were done by Infocom. My favorite? "A Mind Forever Voyaging" Heck, the first time

Connect ColdFusion JDBC to Sybase SQL Anywhere [+]
cf_gems | 2/13/18 10:00 PM | ColdFusion
This is something that might not come up often, but every once in a while we have to connect to a Sybase database. This is a built in feature in the Enterprise version of ColdFusion. However, if you have the Standard version of ColdFusion you have to manually add the JDBC jar file and build the connection string by hand. This is easy to do once you have the correct information and correct format of the connection string. Finding that correct information was nearly impossible and required a lo

Leaving Big Blue [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/12/18 9:00 PM
A little over three years ago I was reached out to by an employee of IBM asking if I'd be interested in a developer relations role with them. I had been looking for a devrel role for some time (my position at Adobe had changed after I joined) and I was interested in what IBM had to offer. To be honest, outside of boring (yet I'm sure important) mainframes and Watson, I really didn't know what IBM had to offer for developers.

We're partnering with the Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco to provide a 2-day on-site Intro To Programming With JavaScript class this spring.  Do you have some non-techie coworkers that have always wanted to learn basic programming? Know someone needing to shift careers and learn more about the web? This is an excellent starting point for any people in those positions.

Installing Jekyll on Windows [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/12/18 4:00 PM
Before I begin, please note that this post is not a guide or anything like that. I'm literally just blogging this to help save others the hours of crap I went through trying to get Jekyll to run on Windows. Jekyll is - or I should say - was my favorite static site generator. But getting it to work under Windows, or even Windows Subsystem for Linux - has been a complete and utter crap fest. I did go through the directions here:
