So, a lot of people these days it’s fancy to call ColdFusion redundant and dying. For the record, I HATE those people. ColdFusion isn’t dead to say the least. It is one of the most active and widely used programming languages used in high quality websites.
Today is the day and age of abundance of websites all over the web world. This means that just about anyone with whatever skill set he or she has can go out there and make a website for themselves. This jungle of multiple web development companies has almost made the people blind towards the need to create quality websites.
Of course, people who are serious about their business will definitely contact a decent ColdFusion Development Company to get a website that is steady, reliable and definitely has a lot of business credibility than any other.
Locating the right person for your ColdFusion Web development requirements
Since there are so many developers out there, it becomes really difficult to locate the right person for the job. Everybody claims to be the best developer however; very few have the right talent, experience and qualification to deliver high quality work.
Having all these limitations it becomes all the more imperative to make certain that the developer is appropriate for the task. This is why when you are out on the look for you have to ensure that you check the following things about the candidate:
- Applicable understanding.
- Assortment of previous works.
- Turnaround time.
All these are exceptionally important features of deciding on the right candidate.
Why ColdFusion is the Best?
Cold Fusion is one of the simplest languages to work on for experienced developers because it is based on Java and Sun J2EE verified application. Now, since it is a Java based language, handling and managing it on various servers is also extremely convenient. The top servers it works seamlessly on include:
- Sun ONE
- Web Sphere
Coldfusion also comes up with multiple bug fixes on a regular basis. It carries on to development in order to ensure that new advancements and enhancements are never too far.
Limitation in community support
If there is any disadvantage of ColdFusion that I will agree to, it is the limited support that the online community of ColdFusion developers offers. Unlike PHP or Rails, ColdFusion seems to have a very tight circle of users who are not too much on sharing and giving out information on a lot of threads.
However, there are a couple of very good and interesting forums where developers from all over the world discuss and share their insight on ColdFusion. What’s more, today with the help of technology, hardly any query is unfathomable because you will eventually be able to find an answer either from a source or just by looking around various blogs and articles.
On the whole coldfusion is a difficult but close to perfect language for web development. The best feature of coldfusion is not how easily it can be developed, but the fact that it is incredibly flexible. You really can mould it to create a website to the exact specification that you have in mind. All you need to do is be patient and dedicated. Your website will definitely succeed.
