Using ANY Type Prevents Function Parameter Type-Checking In TypeScript 2.1.5 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 2/11/17 11:00 PM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel demonstrates that the use of an "any" value in TypeScript essentially opts-out of parameter type validation during function invocation....

Lots of upcoming ColdFusion/CFML-related events [+]
Charlie Arehart's Blog | 2/10/17 11:00 PM | mura, community, events
I thought I'd take a moment to share news of several upcoming CF/CFML-related events, from conferences to half-day events, some as early as next week. First up are the upcoming conferences: Adobe Government Summit conference, organized by Adobe (Washington, DC, USA; Apr 18-19 2017) Into the Box conference, "ColdFusion & Java, Redefined", organized by the ColdBox t

Attach AWS IAM Role to Existing EC2 [+]
Chris Tierney | 2/10/17 5:00 PM | Cloud, AWS, EC2, IAM, Role
It has always been one of my pet-peeves that I had to attach an IAM role to an EC2 instance just in case I’d need it in the future. The reason was you couldn’t attach one later. Attaching a role allows API access to AWS from your instance w/o having to inject API keys, which reduces security and maintainability (you’d have to remember to change out the keys when rotating keys). AWS has now announced that you can attach an IAM role to an exiting EC2 instance.

More Thoughts on Leveling Up [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/10/17 5:00 PM
Warning - what follows isn’t code related - it’s a bit mushy. I apologize in advance. Something has been on my mind this morning and I thought I’d share. A little over a year ago, I shared an article on how developers can improve their craft, “Leveling Up Your JavaScript”. For some reason, this article has been picked up by a few outlets on Twitter this week and I’ve seen renewed interest/RTs/etc on the content, so I guess that’s a good thing if people a

Java method overriding and visibility [+]
lagod | 2/10/17 1:00 AM | Software development, java
This post is about a little test I set up to get my head around one aspect of method overriding in Java. A method in a superclass can call either another superclass method, or a subclass method, depending on the visibility of the methods involved. These are the demo classes: public class SuperClass { public String a() { return b(); } public String b() { return c(); } public String c() { return "super

java.security.InvalidKeyException: IOException : Short read of DER length [+]

Ben Nadel documents the obtuse Java error - "Short read of DER length" - that is thrown when trying to generate an RSA signature with an empty private key in ColdFusion....

The 100 most interesting posts on the Adobe ColdFusion blog, the past 3 years [+]
Charlie Arehart's Blog | 2/9/17 11:00 PM | cf2016, cf10, cf11, blogging
The Adobe ColdFusion team blog often has really some interesting content, but I find that some people are either not aware of the blog or just don't keep up on it, or perhaps they have trouble finding something they saw before or maybe heard was there. So here I present what I feel are the 100 (technically, 105) most interesting/useful posts made there over the past 3 years (2014-16), offering information about CF and CFML which should be valuable to readers

Serverless and Persistence [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/9/17 6:00 PM
Today’s post isn’t going to be anything really deep, more of an “A-ha” moment I had while talking with my coworker Carlos Santana. No, not that a-Ha… More a “adjustment of a misunderstanding” of the serverless platform. One of the things I knew right away about serverless is that my code acted as a single, atomic unit, in an ephemeral form. So yes, a server is still involved with serverless, but it’s created on the fly, used my code, then disappe

Using Social Login with Passport and Node [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/8/17 9:00 PM
I’ve blogged before about Passport (“Some Quick Tips for Passport”) as well as an example of social login with Passport (“New POC - Daily Reddit”), but I thought it would be nice to share an example focused just on using social login with Passport. As I discovered when I first worked with Passport, it makes things really easy, but it can be incredibly difficult sometimes to find the right part of the docs to figure out particular usage needs.

PHP: more array dereferencing weirdness [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 2/8/17 10:00 AM | Kalle Sommer Nielsen, PHP
G'day:(Firstly: I hasten to add that the "weirdness" is "weird to me". It might be completely predictable to everyone else in the PHP world).This is a follow-on from my earlier article "PHP: accessing an undefined array element yields a notice. Or does it? WTF, PHP?". Now before I start: Kalle Sommer Nielsen has come back to me in a comment on that article and mentions it's expect

AWS Reduced Redundancy S3 Depreciated [+]
Chris Tierney | 2/8/17 5:00 AM | Cloud, AWS, S3
Stop using Reduced Redundancy S3 storage (RRS) on AWS now. Starting price for RRS is now $0.024 where as standard S3 ┬ástarts at $0.023. This caught me off guard today as I use RRS for backups due to what used to be an approximate 33% savings over standard S3. For me using Glacier for backups is out of the question due to the waiting period necessary to get files. There is also the newer “Standard – Infrequent Access” storage type for S3. This is a good o

TDD: still testing too much [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 2/7/17 10:00 AM | Brian Sadler, Peter Lafferty, TDD
G'day:A while back I wrote this article - Maintaining untested code, and mocking too much when backfilling test (with JavaScript & Jasmine) - wherein my colleague pulled me up for testing too much when I'm doing my TDD. I'm working with PHP this time, and I've just been pulled up on it again. For much the same reason. It created an interesting thought exercise... well intere

VS Code Extensions: Output Colorizer [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 2/6/17 10:00 PM
Back when I was a Brackets user and an Adobe employee, I used to do a review of interesting and useful extensions. This proved to be a pretty popular series so I thought it might be a good idea to do the same for my current favorite editor, Visual Studio Code. Right now I’m thinking I’ll try for two reviews per month, but we’ll see if they prove interesting enough for my readers.
