This is pretty big news folks. For a while now, various members of the ColdFusion community, led by Simon Free, have been working on a new educational resource for CF developers. It is now live at:

The material covers 15 chapters on topics ranging from ORM, security and even internationalization. You can view the material online or download it as a PDF or eBook version.

To make it even sweeter - this is also 100% free!

    I'm not having any luck with this once it tries to create the database. I've tried using Mac & Win and run into the same issue so I'm wondering if there's something I'm doing (or not doing) correctly? I have some experience with MS SQL but none with MySQL so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I was going to recommend you provide this feedback on the site itself, but while I see a generic 'contact' link, I'm not seeing a specific, good way to comment about a particular lesson. I just pinged Simon Free to see what he had in mind for that. That being said, what's going wrong exactly? Is there one step failing for you?

    @donna, The problem is probably due to your install of MySQL not having command line access. Fill out this form and once i have a way of contacting you I can send you the instructions to do it manually.

    @ray, we now have an ask a question link in the header as well as a feedback/contribute section

    Nice. I still Disqus on each lesson would be a great way to add commenting.
