jqGrid with ColdFusion

Posted on November 18, 2008 at 17:20 2 Comments

Readers of mine will know I'm a big fan of jQuery. Now, we have a great Ajaxified grid in CF8, but a friend wrote to ask me how to use jqGrid (http://www.trirand.com/blog/) with ColdFusion. No problem: I am a freaking guru, after all!



Four and a half hours later, a broken man, having enlisted help from my colleague, Maciej, I finally have the answer...

The Importance of Domain Expertise

Posted on November 9, 2008 at 18:27 2 Comments

I've had discussions with many developers who develop Object-Oriented (OO) programs and, often, I'm surprised by the areas of concern to them.



Often, discussions center around the choice of a controller (such as Model-Glue, Mach-II, or Fusebox), followed by supporting frameworks (ColdSpring, Transfer, Reactor)--and that's it.



Missing from these discussions is what I consider to be the most important topic of any discussion about software applications--the domain model.… Continue

Closing Class Thoughts

Posted on October 27, 2008 at 2:55 0 Comments

Well, we finished the first of my "Real World OO" classes last week and I couldn't be more pleased. The programmers who attended were just fantastic -- very stimulating and challenging. Since I'm obviously biased, I recommend you look at the posts Ben Nadel did on his blog: bennadel.com/blog.



In the midst of five full days of OO, we managed to sneak in a couple of lunches at the beach and a night at my house of spaghetti, wine, and more good… Continue

Book Review: High Performance Web Sites

Posted on October 9, 2008 at 14:14 0 Comments

Wow.



Last week, when I arrived home from work, the new O'Reilly book, High Performance Web Sites was waiting for me. I had ordered it thinking it might have a point or two that was interesting. Instead, I found a book so fascinating I could hardly put down.



The book is written by Steve Souders, one of the really smart people behind Yahoo!'s site. Steve starts the book with these words:



"Most of my web career has been spent as a backend engineer. As such,… Continue

Clients...Who Needs 'em?

It's ironic that dealing with clients is one of the most frustrating aspects of development -- ironic because, but for the clients, there would be no development!I've often noted that taking on a client shares similarities with raising a child. Those parents reading this will acknowledge that the first, sine qua non responsibility of a parent is to love their child. If my son knows that I love him, then all the other responsibilities of a parent are possible, if not easy. But without that love,…See More
