Part 1: Week 1 At a Glance > Introducing ColdFusion

Day 1. Introducing ColdFusion

Let's begin with a basic fact that will put your upcoming 21-day journey into perspective, and maybe even make it less wearing on your psyche: ColdFusion is all about saving time.

Like other Web development and application-server tools, it was developed by people like you and me who grew tired of living in their computer chairs, folks who wanted to get their projects finished and get out to see the world.

The 21 days you now begin to invest will pay off later in the form of time—time spent doing things other than hard-coding HTML documents and formatting boring text passages. How you spend that free time is entirely up to you, and way beyond the scope of this book.

In Day 1, you'll

  • Get your first look at Allaire's ColdFusion

  • Learn how it can make you the talk of your computing buddies, and find out whether it's the right tool for your project

  • Cover the basic theory behind creating dynamic pages

  • Look briefly at the client/server relationship that makes all this high-tech wizardry possible
