A few weeks ago a reader asked if I had an example of infinite scroll with a ColdFusion back end. I replied that I did not, and that infinite scroll was the worst thing to happen to the Internet since the rainbow horizontal rule.
I'm possibly being a bit overly dramatic, but I'm really not a fan of it. Maybe it's the OCD in me, but the fact that I can never get to the end of an infinite scroll UI just bugs the hell out of me.
That being said - I figured - why not make a quick example. It can't hurt, right?
I'm totally stealing this content from the official ColdFusion blog, but as it is good news I think I'm allowed. The ColdFusion Summit, a ColdFusion conference organized by Adobe's ColdFusion team, is now officially announced. Details:
October 24th and 25th
Manadalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
Registration cost: $250
Each paid registration will receive a FREE copy of ColdFusion Builder (MSRP value of $299!)
Forgive the title, I'm not sure it best describes the task. I was asked by a reader to consider a simple problem. Given a list of dates, how would you rewrite them so that two (or more) consecutive dates are displayed together? For example, imagine this input.
Due to a problem back home, I have to leave the conference early. I'm giving my Mobile Web Debugging session in the first slot this morning (this schedule change will be announced this morning). Dave Ferguson will be covering my CF10+HTML5 session and Matt Gifford will be covering my PhoneGap session.
Passing it on...

I've come across multiple people lately who have been bitten by this so I thought a quick blog post would be useful for my readers. If you've recently upgraded your ColdFusion server or patched it, you may find some forms return an error when submitted. Here is an example:
Ok, maybe "poetic" is a bit much... but you can listen to my Nerd Radio interview here:
MAX Day 3: Ray Camden and Stupid Questions
Ray Camden, Adobe Creative Cloud Evangelist, talks with us about his sessions at MAX covering topics like PhoneGap Build and web development tools.
Thanks to Leif and and Garth for inviting me!
This year was my second MAX as an employee and was both exciting - and pretty tiring. If you weren't able to make it though there is an easy way to catch what you missed.
