    Hey Ben, Congratulations, and richly deserved. Talk about expert - I sometimes think you've done as many tests in CF as the dev team does. Really outstanding. Now you just need to start presenting. I certainly can't wait to attend. Celebratory burger when I get back into town?!... read more »

  • Excited For 2008 - CFUNITED

    Posted on Jan 2, 2008 at 7:24 PM

    +1. This year I'll be at cf.objective(), CF United, CF United Europe, Web Maniacs, Scotch on the Rocks, the BCS SPA conference, ooSPLA, Code Generation and no doubt one or two others depending on scheduling. I definitely get a ROI on the conferences - both from the things I learn and the people I ... read more »

  • Exercise List: Rethinking The Domain Model / Object Oriented Approach

    Posted on Nov 8, 2007 at 4:01 AM

    @David, It isn't how long the objects will be around that determines whether OOP is a good fit - it's how long the code base will be around, how complex it may become and how easy you want to make the maintenance. The longer you plan on using the code, the more complex it is and the more maintaina... read more »

  • Kinky ColdFusion Calendar System Taking Shape

    Posted on Aug 6, 2007 at 3:22 PM

    Looking very cool! For keeping state, might want to just keep a "current date" URL/form variable. By default current date is today, so from month to year view and back you'll still be viewing August 2007. The question then is what is the intent when someone goes back a year or forward a month? Deci... read more »

  • Maybe Building The View Last IS The Best Way To Go

    Posted on Jul 25, 2007 at 3:52 PM

    @Matt, I've seen a number of people doing site templating using XML XSLT (not much in the CF world). I remember some time back doing due diligence on a web agency that had a system doing just that. It's a really popular approach. Only issue I really have with it is that it doesn't allow less technic... read more »

    Great to see you again. For the first two days I thought you were just an elaborate hoax - everyone I met was like "yeah, I was just talking to Ben" and I couldn't find you anywhere. Glad we finally met up at the Fusion Authority booth. Guessing you're still pumped from the conference given the num... read more »

    Hi Ben, Great posting - can't wait to get my FAQU, but as it is sent to my New York address, I guess I won't get a chance to see it until the end of the month. Firstly to restate the obvious, it is an amazing resource and the one "must read" for anyone serious about CF development. And it isn't a... read more »

  • Passing Data From A Pop-Up Window To A Parent Window Using ColdFusion And Javascript

    Posted on May 4, 2007 at 9:07 AM

    @Ben, The problem with that is I need to then write a generalized back end that'll accept those requests at which point I probably wouldn't even both making it conditional - I'd just make all of my ordering, paging and filtering AJAX (which is something I'm considering anyway). But it isn't a trivia... read more »

    Posted on May 4, 2007 at 9:04 AM

    Hi Boyan, That'd be great (and thanks for taking so much time on this). I know the long term solution is to use a lightwindow which loads a page that then uses AJAX for all its form submissions and links, but that now means that to get this feature working I have to recode all of my generic paging,... read more »
