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: 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'];

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
