A web developer always a particular affection for the first programming language that they learn… and for several on our team, that’s CFML.
The Challenge of Legacy ColdFusion Websites
Most of our ColdFusion projects come from businesses that need help with supporting a legacy platform.
If your former ColdFusion developer is no longer available, you’re likely stuck with a website that you can no longer update; if that website experiences technical problems or crashes, you could be faced with a disaster on your hands and lose customers.
Are you on an Outdated Version of ColdFusion Web Application Server?
Another common challenge with ColdFusion applications that have been developed several years ago is that the version of ColdFusion Web Application Server may be outdated.
We regularly see applications running on ColdFusion 11, 10, 9 or even (*gasp*) ColdFusion 8!
Now that Adobe has released ColdFusion 2016 and ColdFusion 2018, migrating to a more recent version of ColdFusion Web Application Server should really be part of your IT plans.
Do you Need a ColdFusion Expert?
Many ColdFusion developers are very competent, but sometimes they reach the limit of what they can handle or have experience with.
Facing technical problems that are difficult to resolve is not only frustrating and time-consuming, it can slow down your development projects, make you miss your objectives, and allow your competitors to get ahead of you.
