Last week, I gave my first ever presentation at the New York ColdFusion User Group. It was waaay too long and tried to cover way too much information, but it was a lot of fun, and a good way to get my feet wet. I hope that they will let me present again as I had a great time. Next time, I am sure I will be much more organized and cover a smaller topic.
Anyway, the topic I covered last week was a stand-alone version of my code-chat beta. It is fixes many of the bugs that exist in my currently live version. If anyone is interested in looking at the code base, download it here:
Why would you be interested? Here are things that this mini-app uses:
- Cool CSS
- Java method invocation
- Java object instantiation
- ColdFusion components and CFC caching
- File download prompt
This was an AJAX learning experience for me, so please, do not take any of this as best practices.
