The very first version of ColdFusion was released 20 years ago. Since then ColdFusion has ensured that the platform remains relevant to the needs of modern web application development. It has been an amazing journey and the secret sauce for its success over the years has been its ability to make hard things easy and the incredible passion shown by the product team and CF community.
I personally feel proud to be part of this journey for more than half of its life (10+ years) helping steer the ship beginning with setting up the team in India office and then successfully shipping version 8, 9, 10 & 11 of the product along with several updaters and updates. During this time, the team also created a grounds-up implementation of IDE – ColdFusion Builder, Cloud version, CF Mobile application development platform.
A very happy 20th birthday to ColdFusion and wish it can continue to delight the customers by making hard things easy and keeping the passion alive!
