ColdFusion is a powerful and versatile web technology that has survived a server rewrite as well as company buyouts over the years. It has its roots in the dotcom explosion but has stayed strong throughout this evolution into Web 2.0 and is continuing to reinvent itself for the cloud and mobile worlds. Currently at version 10, the technology is still strong and ColdFusion developers can create robust and scalable applications using only a minimum of effort with the platform.
Over the years it has faced competition from technologies like ASP, ASP.NET, Ruby on Rails and PHP, among others, and has endured ongoing speculation and discussion about its inevitable demise. Despite all of this it has managed to not only survive, but actually thrive and expand its features, capabilities and reach.
