Who Uses ColdFusion?

This post is more than 2 years old.

Derek wrote me today to tell me about Who Uses ColdFusion. At first I thought this was another list, like GotCFM - but this one seems more focused on helping job seekers find companies using ColdFusion.

We currently use CF (cf8) at Reed Elsevier in the UK and pockets of the US.

However the company has changed its view on CF and has recently made redundant the whole CF team opting for c#.net as its preferred technology.

I am the sole remaining CF guy purely on the basis that I had some c#.net knowledge. CF is a dirty word here at the moment.

Sad times :(

My previous company Newsquest also in the UK also use CF (version 5).

What happened was a new CIO started and came from an environment where he had 100+ dotNet devs and didnt really understand CF and pretty much made his mind up that CF was not enterprise enough which I and the rest of the CF community know is not true.

The end result was a decision behind closed doors that made the entire CF redundant :( :(

Thankfully most have got new roles, but CF was deemed a hobbyist language and anyone who had any relation to it would be replaced by dotNet developers.

One of the calssic arguments being that CF costs to much etc...that old line.
I pointed relevant peeps at various presentations by Cutter and Forta outlining CF and its benefits but the decision was made and that was that.

So the current situation is a complete replacement of the cf team with c#.net developers. The fireing process included 5 permenant members of staff.
