Ben Nadel Will Make You Code - Thanks Dave Dugdale!

Published in Comments (22)

From time to time, people will shoot me an email thanking me for a particular blog post; I am always shocked and flattered that people take the time to do such things. Recently, however, Dave Dugdale took it one step further and totally made my day with a fresh, "Ben Nadel Commercial". What can I say - I love it!


You guys rock!

I enjoyed making the video for you! It is the least I can do for all the help you have given me over the years for a hacker like myself.<CFSET Dave = "spaghetti code">. I can tell all your readers really appreciate the effort you put in to each post.

Also homage goes to Robert Bruce (KnifeGunPen) for the idea of doing this video. The format of my video is based on a video he did years ago that I thought was so cool.

Awesome site.

One of the few blogs I bother with - and the only CF one I bother with.

P.S. does Cara Beverage have any clothes on? (one of the random 'thumbs up' pics)


@Jose thanks! I have been doing more video on my sites the last couple of years and I have learned a lot from the community over at Vimeo.


It couldn't have been put any better than that Ben.

I read your blog for inspiration all the time, and I seem to find this site a lot searching when I have a problem with what I am working on.

I love the fact that your posts are progressive, they evolve as you discover new things; That is the same way I learn things. You also do it in simple code examples that don't use some high level programming paradigm that is only used by the most advanced coders.

That also gives beginners a level of comfort that is rare, making coding fun, and relaying the simple fact that CFML is really a fun language to code with, and you do not have to think like a robot to do it.

You also add a bit of humor and an undeniable human element to the otherwise terse element of programming. not only makes you code better, It makes you want to code!

Keep up the great posts, you have a lot of fans and I am one of them!

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
