About this Course

This course focuses on looking at a ColdFusion based website from the Application level using features within ColdFusion to simplify the entire website development process. Anyone who works with ColdFusion based websites should understand the Application and Error handling frameworks within ColdFusion. Taking advantage of the Application level allows you to control events within your pages, offers better performance for your website and web pages, and gives you complete control of error-handling within a site. Additional topics include speeding up your ColdFusion performance using Query caching, and looking at your server performance using the Server Monitor.

A ColdFusion Application and Error Handling Framework will be built throughout the course. All exercises are task-based, with ColdFusion concepts explained along the way. Take advantage of everything that ColdFusion can offer by becoming familiar with these frameworks built into ColdFusion.
