Working on my NativeScript RSS Application [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 5/27/16 4:00 PM
A few days ago I blogged about my experiences building a simple RSS reader with NativeScript. Today I’m coming back to the application to take care of two problems I mentioned in the previous post. The first problem I wanted to handle was checking for network connectivity before trying to load the RSS feed. In Apache Cordova, this is done via

Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 5/25/16 4:00 PM | Adobe ColdFusion, Adobe ColdFusion 2016, Announcements
As you are probably aware, we are in the planning stage for the next version of ColdFusion. You may have already seen a blog post asking you to submit your wishlist for the next version. This post is about a survey that will give Adobe valuable information about your usage of ColdFusion. Please take a few minutes to take this survey and provide your feedback. The data from the survey will be used to validate a set of hypothesis about

Building an AJAX-based form for Formspree [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 5/25/16 1:00 AM
Back when I converted my site from WordPress to Hugo, one of the issues I had to take care of was setting up a processor for my contact form. I decided to go with Formspree as their free tier easily handled the amount of form submissions I got per month. While most folks will use Formspree with a “regular” old form post, you can also use a fancy-pants Ajax submission as well. The Formspree folks document this, but their example is rather short, a

ContentBox - Creating Custom Layouts for you Custom Modules [+]
Ortus Solutions, Corp Blog RSS Feed by ContentBox | 5/24/16 12:00 PM | ColdBox MVC, ContentBox CMS, Modules
In our last post on Extending ContentBox 3 with your own Custom Modules we learned that you could build a custom ColdBox Modile with amazingly, just 2 files. You could paste in your legacy spaghetti code right into your default view, and it would work. Of course, we probably want to dress it up a little more, and add some more functionality, so lets look at the layout first.

A simple RSS reader in NativeScript [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 5/23/16 4:00 PM
Last week I wrote up my initial thoughts on working with NativeScript. After working through the getting started guide, I thought I’d take a stab at building a simple app, a RSS reader. Before going further, note that you should assume my code is crap. It works - but I’m sure I’ve done things like - well - a noob. Because I am. So I’d think tw

ColdFusion (2016 release) - Security audit report [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 5/23/16 7:00 AM | Security, Adobe ColdFusion 2016, Announcements
As you are probably aware, with each version of ColdFusion, security is at the top of the priority list. With the latest release of ColdFusion, it is not just the security related features. Emphasis was laid on the inherent security of the ColdFusion platform by itself. To validate this, the PSIRT (Product Security Incident Response Team) at Adobe helped arrange a third party security audit for ColdFusion. The audit did come up with a few findings. Our Product engineers did an excellent job o

ContentBox - Extending ContentBox 3 with your Own Custom Modules [+]
Ortus Solutions, Corp Blog RSS Feed by ContentBox | 5/20/16 12:00 PM | ColdBox MVC, ContentBox CMS, Modules
In a previous Post, we talked about extending ContentBox easily with modules, and showed you how you could just download a module, activate it and use it in minutes. In this post, we'll look at how to add Modules into your website, by building your own, and how to leverage Module Layouts. Whether you have used ColdBox before or not, using Modules with ContentBox and ColdBox is fairly straightforward, in fact, I think its a great way to dip your toes into using both technologies.

Map, Reduce and other Higher Order Functions [+]
TIL | 5/20/16 2:31 AM | map-reduce, functional, higher-order-functions
There are few things I have learned in my programming career that have paid off like higher order functions. Map, Reduce and Filter with their cousins, along with the concept of passing functions as data in general make code easier to reason about, easier to write, easier to test. I find myself evangelizing these concepts often, so I thought I would try to do my best to give

Students the world over (and their teachers) love Adobe Spark, and we love them using it. We built Adobe Spark with students in mind, and even chose "Spark" as the name because it's a small thing that can ignite something much larger.
