Video duration: 0s 5h 0m Beginner


Build a dynamic, database-driven website using ColdFusion 9 and ColdFusion Builder, an exciting interface developed by Adobe specifically for ColdFusion development. This hands-on course from Adobe Certified Expert Candyce Mairs shows how to set up a testing environment by installing ColdFusion, ColdFusion Builder, and a database and use ColdFusion tags and built-in functions to get and display database data. Then learn how to create data-driven pages and pass data between those pages, as well as how to use and validate forms. By completing this course you can gain a thorough understanding of dynamic websites, including how web servers, application servers, server-side languages, and databases all work together to create web pages.

Topics include:
  • Understanding static vs. dynamic requests
  • Using the ColdFusion Administrator
  • Creating, displaying, and scoping variables
  • Working with include files
  • Pulling data from a database
  • Displaying and modifying database data
  • Passing data between pages
  • Working with form data
  • Populating form fields with query data


- 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.
