Back when ColdFusion MX 7 shipped I posted a little photo-tour of the Newton facility and CF7 team area, the enterprise testing lab, etc.
This time around, well, first off, we're NOT shipping yet, (in fact we are just getting the DVD burners out of their boxes!), but it's pretty much all the same in terms of facilities, so I'd thought I'd do a quick walk around the ColdFusion 8 engineering and quality assurance areas today to show you what a world-class, mega software operation truly looks like.
Let me caveat this by saying....we have fun on the CF team, first and foremost. And we build some kick-butt software for our customers, and we're as passionate about what we're building as our customers are using it to change people's lives.
We take that responsibility given to us very seriously. But to somehow deal with the incredible stress and responsibility that comes with owning the worlds most used software, little indicators of dealing with that stress begin to show as you walk around the CF R&D zone.
Let's call this...the ColdFusion 8 "Non-Tour" then. Click the "CF" logo to begin.
May the team forgive me. :)
It's times like these when I actually really do wish I'd applied to Allaire back in the Eagan, MN, days when they'd hire anyone who could type at least 30 words a minute and knew what "C++" was.
Shouldn't you guys add one more to the CF team? I mean, really, if you had another person on board, wouldn't that take some of the heat off now? ;)
Don't bother with the DVD's, release now and let us download, who gets boxes anymore?
