Happy 10th CF! Tour the CFMX7 R&D Newton Facilities!
Happy 10th Birthday, ColdFusion!

Wow, hard to believe it's already been nearly a full decade that ColdFusion has been making developers productive and powering dynamic web applications.

The ColdFusion MX 7 "Blackstone" release was a truly landmark release: solid and stable, fast, reliable, powerful, empowering, with radical new capabilities, and breaking out of what has become an increasingly stagnant and commoditized list of application server functionality.

We haven't seen people this excited in a long, long time. Clearly, CFMX7 sparked the imagination of thousands of organizations who have come to understand what this product enables them and their organizations to do, and they're bringing this innovation and power to bear, with great successes!

We've hit the 10-year anniversary of the first great set of innovations that initially made up the first version of ColdFusion, but we’re marking it with what I believe are even more radical and exciting innovations that will empower developers like never before and enable new categories of Internet applications with radical ease, in record time, and for many years to come.

So, Happy 10th Birthday, ColdFusion!

So come on in behind the scenes and Click Here to tour the ColdFusion MX 7 Team's facilities in Newton, MA, where ColdFusion MX 7 was conceived, built, tested and shipped.

Enjoy, and I'll see you at the birthday party!
