The whole idea of ColdFusion is to get results fast, with minimum complexity. So how come most ColdFusion books are so gargantuan? Now, there's an alternative: Essential ColdFusion 4.5 for Web Professionals. Using plenty of examples, these two expert web developers teach all the ColdFusion you need to get rolling, in just a couple hundred pages.
How? Rather than exhaustively covering every single CFML tag, the authors focus on those you'll use most in real-world projects. In fact, projects are at the heart of the book, and nearly every chapter contains one.
You'll find projects introducing ColdFusion database integration, online catalogue construction, automated email responses, user interaction, search features, and more. There's even a chapter on developing wireless m-Commerce applications for WAP-enabled cell phones and wireless PDAs. The book's also backed with a companion web site containing still more advanced projects and downloadable code.
Brown and Fredrick are both longtime ColdFusion aficionados; Brown's work, in particular, has appeared at sites from Apple to Wells Fargo. They know what it's like to be busy. If you're a web pro in the same position, you'll find their book heaven-sent. (Bill Camarda)
