While most may know that CF has always been free for development use, did you know that folks in education (students, teachers, and staff) can obtain CF Standard licenses, for use in learning (though not production)?
This topic is covered in a section in the available ColdFusion FAQ. There’s an FAQ for CF Standard and one for CF Enterprise, and both say the same thing about this matter, in their section of questions on “Complimentary ColdFusion Standard for education“.
There are a few questions within that section, and each offers useful info on the topic, such as:
- How students, faculty, and staff can prove eligibility
- How long it will take for the licenses to arrive
- How to get multiple licenses for lab use
- and more
If you may have still more questions, you can post them here but if you don’t get an answer (or prefer not to ask publicly), consider using the email address offered in the FAQ for expressing interest in the program: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you perhaps didn’t know about CF being free for development, check out my very first post here in the CF portal, from 2017, “CF install/deployment choices: what’s right for me?“.
