Part 1 in a Series - Learning CommandBox, ContentBox, ColdBox, VS Code and GitHub - a little at a time and all at once.


I am an executive at a state agency presiding over a team of bright young CFML developers, many of whom were hired to take over for a retiring workforce. It's hard to think that any CF developer is eligible for retirement but the language has indeed been around for decades now. I consider myself a bit younger than retirement age, but I've also been around for some time, and started coding in ColdFusion in the late 90's. And not only have I been around that long, but some of the code currently in production is as old as my career.  In fact, my team is responsible for applications that have, at minimum, one million lines of ColdFusion code* - more than any other language we use.
