I worked with ColdFusion for over ten years now and had many great successes with it. This was the first web technology I worked with that did not make developing more difficult than it needed to be. Coming from a background in Perl, as much as the result was thrilling: dynamic web pages the arduous process destroyed any pleasure. Enter ColdFusion; suddenly it was a joy to develop. Suddenly I was able to create web pages rapidly that actually did things… and it was easy. It was thanks to ColdFusion.
