Using ColdFusion, thousands of web developers have built complex sites with surprising ease. Now there's ColdFusion Express, a scaled-down freebie version. It's powerful enough to support quite a few sites in its own right -- and, of course, it's a great way to learn ColdFusion technology without springing for a license. There's been a crying need for a ColdFusion Express book. Now, one's been published, and it's very good.
In SAMS Teach Yourself ColdFusion Express in 24 Hours, Allaire (now Macromedia) insiders Ben Forta and Sue Bove organize ColdFusion Express into 24 lessons, from the absolute basics to application deployment and management.
Along the way, you'll master the integrated HomeSite editor; create your first page and learn the basics of CFML. Forta and Bove show how to process user input with forms and Action pages; how to connect to databases and create data-driven pages (ColdFusion Express connects to most Windows desktop databases, and to MySQL); and how to create dynamic pages and searches. There's a lesson on basic personalization with cookies; another on security and authentication; another on debugging and troubleshooting; and yet another on optimizing application performance.
ColdFusion is relatively easy, ColdFusion Express is easier, and ColdFusion Express combined with this book is the easiest of all! (Bill Camarda)
