Evils of Global Variables when Unit Testing

Filed under: ColdFusion, Fusebox — Tags: , , , — Steve Nelson @ 6:53 am
Let’s jump right to some code. ::CODECOLORER_BLOCK_1:: versus: ::CODECOLORER_BLOCK_2:: They look pretty similar right? Near identical. Neither is really easier or harder to read. Performance wise, I suspect you couldn’t see much of a difference. If you’re thinking to yourself, “Aww geez Steve Nelson is about to go on a week long rampage about something.” You would be [...]

Use CFArgument For… Everything

Filed under: ColdFusion, Fusebox — Tags: , , — Steve Nelson @ 9:31 am
In my new effort to rid my life of global variables, I’ve been focusing on the arguments scope. I think the arguments scope is the key to solving this problem.

I am Concerned about my Presentation Tomorrow

Filed under: ColdFusion, Fusebox — Tags: , — Steve Nelson @ 8:15 pm
I have to be honest, I’m a little concerned that my presentation at 12:30 tomorrow. My new CFC framework/methodology/method (whatever you call it) is just too simple. I’m concerned that it won’t confuse enough people tomorrow. I mean, this conference is about frameworks, the attendees are the smartest of the smart people in the CF community. [...]

Filed under: ColdFusion — Tags: , — Steve Nelson @ 9:40 am
I just gave a presentation to the Maryland ColdFusion user group about an experimental framework i’ve been goofing around with.
