This book is aimed at giving the reader a working knowledge of ColdFusion. It provides instructional advice and explains how ColdFusion works with other web-based technologies. Plenty of working examples are included - also available on a website powered by ColdFusion. The author, Matthew Norman, has written a "get started quick" guide, which describes the setting up of a development system - he talks about how to achieve this on a budget, using techniques that are applicable to large scale operations. Anyone with a working knowledge of the Internet and who wants to learn more about what ColdFusion does and how they can start using it quickly will find this book invaluable.
