Back when ColdFusion 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, it's pretty much all the same in terms of facilities, so I'd thought I'd drop down and 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 the incredible 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. :)
