- Welcome to Getting Started with ColdFusion 10. My name is Candyce Mairs and I am an Adobe certified instructor and web developer. Web designers looking to expand their skills into web development appreciate the simplicity of ColdFusion because it's a tag based language that looks similar to HTML. What takes two to three lines of code in ColdFusion can take 10 to 20 lines of code to produce in other languages.
In this course, we will be building a database driven website for a fictitious travel company called Travel Adventures while you learn the basics of ColdFusion. As we move through the course, you'll become familiar with the ColdFusion development environment including installing ColdFusion and ColdFusion Builder, setting up a web server, setting up a testing server, and also working with a database. You will also create an application as we pull data from a database onto the web pages, insert and update database data using forms, and we end by creating an administrator interface that will allow employees to insert our modified data within the database.
We will be working in ColdFusion Builder. This is Adobe's interface specifically created for working with ColdFusion. Thank you for the opportunity to introduce you to the exciting world of database driven websites and ColdFusion.
