CFML: revision to thread syntax (revisited) [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 8/4/15 8:00 AM | CFML, Multi-threading, Promises
G'day:Whilst messing around JavaScript Promises ("JavaScript: getting my brain around Promises" and "JavaScript: expectations re-adjusted re Promises") a week or so ago, I also started looking at how CFML's innate multi-threadedness, and how one would leverage this along with a CFML Promise implementation to be

Tech press bias [+]
lagod | 8/4/15 12:00 AM | General Tech
Will Windows 10 Win Developers Back To Microsoft? This is a relatively balanced article on the issues facing Microsoft in growing developer mindshare, containing many balanced points. But I’m going to use it as a bit of a punching bag because I’m frustrated with the poor reporting and almost unbelievable levels of bias in the tech media. Sorry PW &

Is the Web Really in Trouble? [+]
Remote Synthesis | 8/3/15 2:00 PM
This morning I published a post on the Telerik Developer Network that asks the question “What’s Wrong with the Web?”? If you read about web development at all (and apparently you do, since you are reading this), you can’t possibly have missed the long list of posts declaring that the web, as we know it, is in serious jeopardy. The main issues are: The web is

PHP: Has PHP7 implemented function return-type checking syntax poorly? [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 8/3/15 8:00 AM | PHP, PHP 7
G'day:I had a look at PHP 7's new (but very late tot he party) capability to type-check function return types the other day ("PHP 7: functions can now have type-checking on their return values"). The functionality kinda works OK, but I think the syntax is off:[access modifier] [static modifier] functionName([[type]

Charlie Arehart's Blog | 8/3/15 6:00 AM | tomcat, cf10, cf11, monitoring, webserver, troubleshooting
If you're running CF 10 or 11, there's a very interesting post on the Adobe CF blog, from July 19, entitled, Configuring Status Worker in Connectors. The Adobe blog post title may not have caught your attention, but it's about setting up a lightweight and built-in Tomcat monitoring feature for observing the status of the Tomcat web server connector. You may want to consider enabling it, but I would ad

Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/2/15 3:00 PM | Uncategorized
Before I begin, a quick disclaimer. I’ve known Adam for a long time, so my review may be a bit colored by the fact that I’m friends with him. Of course, the flip side to that is that on more than one occasion I’ve fought with him over something or another o

NCDevCon 2015 Session-Javascript Promises - Control your asynchronicity [+]
NCDevCon | 7/31/15 6:00 PM | 2015
Javascript Promises - Control your asynchronicity Still using callbacks to manage your asynchronous workflow in Javascript? As ES6 Harmony nears release, it's time to add Promises to your Javascript toolbox. Promises provide a more manageable layer over your asynchronous workflow, allowing you to avoid those callback-within-a-callback layers known as 'callback hell'. We'll use the Bluebird.js library to cover multiple Promise patterns, and cover how to Promisify existing callback-

Kinky Solutions | 7/31/15 7:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel looks at how string decoding works with streams running in Object Mode in Node.js. As it turns out, there is no decoding - there is no transformation of any kind to the values moving through an Object Mode stream....

Ben Forta | 7/31/15 4:00 AM | SQL, Books
I recently mentioned that I was working on a SQL tutorial video series based on my best-selling Sams Teach Yourself SQL books (and their spin-offs). Well, the videos are now online, close to 3 hours of yours truly walking you through getting started with SQL. The lessons are based on the flow and format of the SQL books, even using the same examples and sample data, and are designed to be used in conjunction with the books if so desired. The videos are on

deORM() [+]
FusionGrokker | 7/31/15 12:00 AM | ColdFusion, Hibernate, Open Source
Here's a little UDF that I just finished writing that I think will be useful to those of you that use ColdFusion's ORM. The root of the problem is that doing a <cfdump> on an ORM entity is not really "safe" because its relationships will all be loaded and dumped too (unless you use the "top" attribute, which is poorly implemented). For a while I got around this by using

Cordova/Ionic Sample App: My Sound Board [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 7/30/15 4:00 PM | Development, JavaScript, Cordova, Ionic
Today’s demo is something I started working on Sunday “for fun”, but when it turned into an unholy mess (see Recording and saving audio in Cordova applications), it took me a bit longer to wrap than I expected. The idea was simple. “Sound Boards” are apps that contain a collection of sounds, typically related to a movie or TV show. My coworker
