Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2018 Preconference Workshops almost Sold Out!
There are only a handful of seats available for our preconference workshops on Security topics, Angular + CFML workshop and Troubleshooting common CF Challenges, so we will be closing registration very soon due to capacity limitations. Please register today if you haven’t yet!
As a reminder, these workshops are full day hands-on labs so it’s a great learning opportunity for your teams. Below is a summary of the workshop descriptions:
Angular + CFML Workshop
In this workshop we’ll go over the basics of how to start building apps with Angular. You’ll learn some essential node.js commands, the MVVM design pattern, TypeScript basics, and will create several Angular applications. Next, we’ll look at several ways ColdFusion can be used to create server-side APIs for a variety of codebase styles (legacy CFML, proper MVC and something in between the two). And finally we’ll connect our ColdFusion API up to an Angular front-end application.
Hands on ColdFusion Security Workshop
Bring your laptop and get your hands dirty learning how to find and fix security vulnerabilities in your ColdFusion codebases. In this full day session you will learn about several classes of web application security vulnerabilities and how they pertain to CFML.
Using a vulnerable CFML web application prebuilt for training, you will learn what red flags to look for in the code. Next you will see first hand how attackers may exploit the vulnerabilities. Finally you’ll learn techniques for improving the security of your CFML code.
Troubleshooting Common CF Challenges
In this daylong training, veteran CF Troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will guide you through understanding and resolving several of the most common problems that befall nearly all ColdFusion shops at some point, whatever version you may be running (2018, 2016, 11, or earlier).
Besides learning the problems, their causes, and solutions, we will review as well key diagnostic mechanisms that are either built-in or easily made available. Most important, we’ll see how to connect what the diagnostics report to the real underlying cause of problems.
Among the problems we’ll address are :
• High CPU use in ColdFusion
• High memory use
• Long-running or hung requests
• Long-running Jdbc transactions
• ColdFusion crashing
• Problems updating CF
• Problems updating the JVM
• Problems tuning the web connector
• And more
All these full day preconference labs will have prerequisites and will require students to bring their own laptops for use. Further details on what will be covered and prerequisite information will be provided soon.
