Garage Gym Racing Exercise Steering Wheel [+]
Orange is my favorite color | 10/4/15 12:00 AM | Racing
Fitness and motorsport are two important parts of my life and a significant portion of my training is to improve my capability on a race weekend. I’ve read books, spent a weekend at the Porsche Human Performance center at Silverstone and built a gym in my garage. But one of the challenges for auto racing is that there are not many spo

Raymond Camden'sBlog | 10/2/15 5:00 PM | Development, JavaScript, Mobile, Ionic

Designing for change, keeping customers uncomfortable [+]
Polymorphism | 10/2/15 2:00 PM | Marketing, change, Design, product design, Strategy
In this cloud-based world, product designers hold a lot of power. In one extreme, an app could be redesigned in major ways frequently. In the other extreme, an app’s interface could stay exactly the same for its entire life. The degree to which you keep your customers uncomfortable is a choice, whether you’ve made the choice intentionally or not. If you’re building or running a software product, figure out where you want to be on this spectrum. Then figure out how you

PHP 7: anonymous classes [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 10/2/15 12:57 PM | Francesco Allara, PHP, PHP 7
G'day:I thought it was high time I wrote an article with some code in it. Also one of my (now former ) colleagues - Cisco - asked me to write about this, so here I am.Another new feature of PHP 7 (see the rest of my bumpf on PHP 7) is the ability to create anonymous classes. An anonymous class is to a named class what a closure (or anonymous fun

CFML: nice work Pete ( [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 10/2/15 12:57 PM | Documentation, Pete Freitag
G'day:What a productive lunchtime I've had today. Well: blog-wise.This is timely. Adobe have messed the ColdFusion community around yet again by moving the docs site to a read-only affair, and one that gives a security warning whenever one clicks through from Google.Pete Freitag has stepped up and is more actively trying to engage the community in helping maintain

PHP: a quick question about creating generic objects [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 10/2/15 12:57 PM | PHP
G'day:I Twittered this yesterday, but I got no response. Here's a quick PHP question. I need to group some properties together in a throwaway object. It would be overkill to create a class for it, and I don't like the idea of using arrays to collect key/value pair data together (even though this is a ubiquitous practice in PHP... it just seems wrong to me).So I have two options:$mySimpleObj = (object)['foo'=>'bar'];

Image Load And Error Events Bubble Up In ReactJS [+]
Kinky Solutions | 10/2/15 11:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel looks at how image "load" and "error" events are handled in ReactJS and demonstrates that the synthetic event system allows these non-bubbling events to bubble-up in the virtual DOM tree....

Some cool things in Lucee [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 10/1/15 10:00 PM | ColdFusion
I really haven’t spoken much about Lucee since the initial announcement a few months back. It seems like a lot of “things” are going on, and frankly, I figured I’d just see where things settle down later this year. It just so happened that I ended up on the cfapplication doc for Lucee and I was pretty surprised by what I saw. Here are some of the cool things Lucee is doi

Proof of Concept: Validating an HTML Snippet in a Form [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 10/1/15 3:00 PM | Development, JavaScript
On my blog, I write my entries in pure HTML. WordPress supports a Visual editor too, but I like to write my HTML tags by hand. That’s how I’ve done it for the past twenty years and that’s how God intended me to write HTML. (Joking, honestly.) What’s nice is that I can leave out some tags, like paragraph markers, and WordPress will handle that for me. I typically just worry about italics, bold, and links. Despite having worked with web pages since dinosaurs used

ColdFusion: language-centric stuff flagged for fixing (for ColdFusion 12?) [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 10/1/15 1:00 PM | ColdFusion 12
G'day:Adobe have claimed that ColdFusion 12 will be a developer-centric exercise, which makes a pleasing change from the PHB-oriented CF11 (well: that can be the only basis for <cfclient> to ever have been considered... some muppet from Adobe polling PBHs for what they want in ColdFusion).Obviously Adobe are never directly forthcoming as to what's going to go into the next version of ColdFusion, but one can make some inferences from status changes in the bug tracker. Ther

Another survey (not by me this time) about text editor usage when CFML coding [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 10/1/15 12:00 PM | Survey
G'day:More radio buttons for you to click! This time my mate Jared Evans wants to know what manner of app you tend to use for doing your coding (with a CFML bent to it). The survey is here: It's nice and short (three questions, from memory), so shouldn't take you long. Get in there.I'm not sure how Jared will circu

Ionic 1.6.5 and updates to Services [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 9/30/15 9:00 PM | Development, JavaScript, Mobile, Ionic
As a quick aside, I worked with Eric Bobbitt of the Ionic team while writing this. I asked him a lot of questions very quickly and he never complained. Big kudos to him for being patient with me! A while ago I gave a presentation on Ionic Services, and as I mentioned earlier this week, I’ll be speaking on the topic again next month. Today the Ionic folks released an update to the CLI that helps improve Ionic Se
