Come join us in this 1-day training before the ColdFusion Summit East with the creator of ColdBox: Luis Majano.

In this 1-day training, we will demystify using an MVC framework to build secure web applications and APIs in ColdFusion (CFML).  We will start our adventure in setting up a modern development environment with CommandBox and leveraging its automation and package management tooling to quickly create applications and servers we can work on. 

We will go through all the basics of MVC and how it compares to building traditional ColdFusion applications.  We will create an application using Behavior Driven Development testing techniques, CBsecurity for securing our application, Database Migrations, and fluent query building.  Yes, we will see testing, and it won’t be scary!

Get ready to transform yourself into an MVC coding machine!

Beginners to the world of MVC that want to get a quickstart into the MVC ecosystem or Medium/Advanced developers that want to sharpen their skills using the latest ColdBox version and testing techniques.

Why should I take the workshop?

1. If you have never done any work with an MVC framework and you want to get exposed to how to build CFML apps with one in record time.
