Welcome to the CFStartup Project!

What's all this about?  Well, it's my attempt to break away from the 9-to-5 and start up my own business.  The details of the business will develop over time, but I do know it'll have a significant development component.  What do I want to use for my development environment?  As you may have guessed, I'm using the ColdFusion platform.  This blog is all about my attempt to show that ColdFusion still has a place among the modern developer toolset.

Today, there are at least a couple flavors of CF that a startup can choose from.  Along with the decision whether to use Adobe ColdFusion or Lucee server, there are a number of development styles, cloud services, and frameworks to choose from.  As my new business venture launches, I'll describe what works for me and why.

So why go through this?  Well, CF hasn't had the greatest public relations lately, but it still has its place along side the more popular web application platforms.  It's not a perfect solution, but nothing is.  It is at least a mature technology that has made great strides over the last few years to simplify MVC, microservices, REST APIs, and more.

If you haven't used CF in a while, now is a great time to take another look at this great addition to the developer toolbox.  With the rapid development capabilities CF has always had, along with the latest modern development tools, a startup can go pretty far. Time to put my money where my blog is.
