ColdFusion 101 – Adobe ColdFusion – Fast Track to ColdFusion

Class Description
This class provides participants with the concepts and skills to use ColdFusion effectively. This 2-day course will familiarize Participants with the ColdFusion development environment and the integration of other Adobe products, including CFEclipse and Dreamweaver. Features include functions, expressions, variables and constants, and flow-control constructs, such as if-then and loops. CFML (ColdFusion Markup Language) also has a “language within a language,” CFScript, which enables Participants to use a syntax like JavaScript for many operations. These elements and other basic CFML entities such as comments, data types, escape characters, and reserved words, let Participants create complex applications.
