I just finished a 3 day course on ColdFusion which was absolutely tremendous. I didn't realise just how powerful this application was in terms of designing dynamic web pages.

The simplicity of it makes it fun and enjoyable to work with. It has some very advanced features to allow you to create queries within the .cfm files. This makes it a very powerful and useful tool for retrieving information stored in a database.

Although I was working with it in a Windows environment, I have been told it is available for linux from Allaire's home page [click here]

Oh yeah, the presentation of the Supreme Court web site which I did last Friday went extremely well. All the Judges were quite impressed by all the comments I recieved. I just have a few minor modifications to make and if all goes well, the site should be up soon.

Anyway, thats about it for me today. I want to get stuck into my ColdFusion text book that I was given (all 1000 pages of it) so I can gain a better understanding of how it works and what it has to offer. I read up on a few Job Search sites that with ColdFusion knowledge you could earn between 50 - 100k.... Not bad!
