The recent versions of ColdFusion have added many new language features. We’ve now got closures, functional programming constructs, QueryExecute, the safe navigation operator, the Elvis operator, and even more coming in future releases. For people new to functional programming or object oriented programming, it can be hard to see where these features can be beneficial. Let’s fix that!
In this talk we’ll discuss many of the new language enhancements in CFML. But rather than stopping with an “x = 1” example, we’ll look at blocks of code that are more real-world in nature. The code demos will all be based on scenarios you’ll run across in your daily development. That's right, we'll run real live code! You'll get to see these language features in action, right before your very eyes!
