An Example of a Static Site with a Dynamic Calendar [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/25/17 1:00 AM
Forgive the somewhat clunky title - I wanted to share a little demo I built for my presentation this week at DevNexus. The idea behind the demo was whether or not I could create a simple dynamic calendar system with a static web site. My presentation was all about adding dynamic aspects back into a static site, so this fit right in. For the demo, I made use of FullCalendar. FullCalendar is a simple little jQuery plugin that renders a nice full screen (well, “as big as you want it”)

What this means is that the house will heat up using the heat pump outside first. If it can’t catch up it will use the auxiliary heat to supplement. My auxiliary heat is provided by electric coils installed above the A-Coil in the air handler. But getting heat from the heat pump is about 300% more efficient than electric coils even though

How to use a database in CLI scripts with CommandBox [+]
Ortus Solutions, Corp Blog RSS Feed by ContentBox | 2/22/17 1:00 AM | CommandBox, Lucee, Tips & Tricks
One of the cool things that CommandBox allows you to do is run CFML code directly from the command line via the execute command, or on Unix as a natively-executable hash bang script. This opens up all sorts of doors for scheduling cron jobs and whatnot that you can write in CFML much faster and esaier than using bash or shell scripts. One common question is how to access the database from one of these scripts.

Another OpenWhisk Cron Example - the Blog Nag [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/21/17 7:00 PM
Last week I blogged about my first experience working with OpenWhisk triggers and rules, specifically the Cron trigger which lets you execute actions according to a schedule. Today I’m sharing another example, which, while not as complex as the 911 scraper, I thought was kind of fun. As a blogger, I try to keep to a certain amount of posts per month. While I a absolutely care more about quality than quantity, I still try to maintain a certain amount of content per month.

VS Code Extensions: mssql and vscode-database [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/18/17 12:00 AM
For today’s review of Visual Studio Code extensions, I looked at two related extensions that provide basic database support. In the past, when I was a heavy ColdFusion user, I was a huge fan of the database support in ColdFusion Builder. Now - CFBuilder was Eclipse-based so it was quite heavy, but I loved it’s database viewer. I don’t have it installed currently, but the basic feature set included being able to view all tables and structure as well as write ad hoq queries again
