Meeting November 8, 2011: Secure your server and your apps against Cross-site Scripting attacks

If you already use HTMLEditFormat(), that's a start, but it's not enough. ColdFusion 10 adds some new functions to deal with XSS, but did you know you can use these same functions within CF 8 and 9 right now (really CF 6 - 9)?

March 2011 Monthly Meeting - CFML on The Google App Engine and Effective Unit Testing

Date and Time: March 8, 2011 from 6:30pm - 9:30pm  

Address:
3030 Lyndon B Johnson Freeway
Dallas, TX 75234-7744
Suite 1140
Dallas, TX 75234

Speakers:  Adam Presley, Steve Good

Agenda:

  • CFML on the Google App Engine  - Adam Presley

    The Google App Engine brings Platform as a Service and "cloud computing" to the masses through free Python and Java application hosting. OpenBD, a free and open source CFML engine, are at the forefront of this technology by offering the only CFML engine compatible with the Google App Engine. See how easy it is to get started using Google's cloud platform and OpenBD!
     
  • Effective Unit Testing - Steve Good

    Unit testing is not only important, but highly underused by the average developer.  I aim to show how easy it is to unit test and even how it can be automated both locally and on a build server.  I'll also cover some often misunderstood aspects of unit testing and Test Driven Development in general.
     

 

As always, food/drink will be provided by our host and sponsor, Paladin Consulting!

Speakers:  Wesley Cockrum, Joe Kelly

 

Agenda:
Continuing our series on open source projects in and related to the world of CFML, we have presentations on the following topics:

ValidateThis  - Wesley Cockrum

ValidateThis is a framework that allows you to define validation rules for your ColdFusion objects in a single place (either an XML file, a JSON file or in ColdFusion code) and will then generate client-side and server-side validations for you.

Railo and BlueDragon on BlueOnyx - Joe Kelly

I'll explain that which is BlueOnyx and why you should use it to host your CFML sites.  We'll use BlueOnyx to set up our sites, users and MySQL databases as well as easily configure Tomcat.  Next we'll install and deploy Railo and BlueDragon WARs for fullly functional CFML engines.

Bring your laptop to hack around in my various servers on your own.

 

As always, food/drink will be provided by our host and sponsor, Paladin Consulting!
