Ok ok ok .. I know that "maybe" before my time here there might have been a post similar, but as I have 5 minutes to kill I thought I would put up some links for cold fusion'ers to get some much needed info.
Channels with the Mirc client www.mirc.com
#coldfusion - dalnet
(highly recommend, always on topic, and very helpful)
#coldfusion - efnet
(also worth recommending, can stray off topic, but does have more members who frequent the channel, if thats a good thing or not,I can't say.)
(I've been there once, so I'm not sure, but it is available if needed.)
http://webforums.macromedia.com/coldfusion/ <-most of the time it's not worth the effort, but for debugging, it's search engine through past posts can't be beat.
alt.comp.lang.coldfusion ( can use google interface for this)
newsreader through the MM forums.
General cold fusion sites
http://www.cfadvisor.com/api-shl/engine.cfm (seems outdated but still has info)
http://www.codebits.com/select.cfm?LanguageID=10 (a few code bits.)
http://doug.nottage.com/cf/index.cfm ( some more code bits)
http://www.fusioncube.net/index.cfm (motto'd the premire cold fusion community, alais I haven't seen much there)
http://www.hotscripts.com/CFML/ ( has a few code bits, tuts, etc, though most are outdated)
http://www.teratech.com/ColdCuts/index.cfm#General (cf code bits)
http://www.webtricks.com/customtags/tags.cfm (code bits, with a nice next-n tag in there)
http://www.forta.com (as if I have to mention this :P)
http://www.cffaq.com/ a q&a from ben, worth a read if you're not settled on the mx flavor of cf.
Cold fusion tutorials
http://www.cfm-resources.com/tutorials.cfm (they also have forums and a kb, .. though the tutorials for beginners can't be beat.)
http://www.developerfusion.com/coldfusion/ (has a few within it)
http://www.macromedia.com/desdev/mx/coldfusion/ ( along with articles, sample code etc. ((though I wish there was more, seems overshadowed with the new director and contribute comming out)) .)
http://www.macromedia.com/software/c...showcase/live/(sites on showcase developed with coldfusion)
http://devex.macromedia.com/developer/gallery/index.cfm (the gallery of cf tags, .. huge asset if you're looking for tags)
ColdFusion Tags that are mainly for sale
Cold Fusion Reference points
http://www.cflib.org/index.cfm (a UDF library, should be in every cf'ers favs.)
http://www.cfcomet.com/ ( if you're wanting cf + com .. this is a good place to start.)
http://www.cfczone.org ( eventually it's s'posed to be the cflib of cfcs, hope so. the mailing list looks promising)
http://www.corfield.org/coldfusion/codingStandards.htm a great list for suggested coding standards.
www.benorama.com mvcf (cfmx based)
Cold Fusion in the email....
http://www.cftipsplus.com/ (a weekly email, .. and most of the time very useful. also has the rest in archive.)
www.houseoffusion.com (has cftalk, and quite a few other cf mailing lists.)
www.cfczone.org (has a mailing list on the topic of cfcs)
http://www.flashcfm.com/ (has a mailing list, .. though it's geared towards the flash + cfm side of things, )
blog based cf
http://www.corfield.org/blog/ Sean Corfield
http://blog.web-rat.com/ Todd Rafferty
http://www.macromedia.com/support/co...s_updates.html ( If you're running with cfmx, and haven't installed the updater,this is the link, fixs a lot of small bugs, and will continue to do so in the future)
--THE DOCS, the phrase RTFM comes to mind,.. but to be honest, there is a wealth of information in those docs, they should be explored.--
as with any language in this gendre would be a good idea to throw in http://sqlcourse.com/index.html for sql, .. it covers the basics not bad for a free course.
And SQL is something that really needs learned
Ok ..I know I've missed a few out there, some of the links have older code, well most have cf 5 , some go back to the 4x series but I didn't want to single out cfmx, as of now there is only maybe 8-9 links that are evolved towards the mx side of things. new things take time. But to give it a general cold fusion reference I hope this will help, if anyone has any to add, please do, just thought it would be a nice idea.
hope it's of some help
