Call for Help: Web shops using ColdFusion

This post is more than 2 years old.

Just got an interesting question in from a freelancer. Chris wants to know if there is a list of web shops that use ColdFusion. There are certainly places to find ColdFusion jobs, and there are listing of sites using ColdFusion, but I'm not aware of a place that list web/design firms who do ColdFusion work for clients. Can anyone recommend something for Chris?

Just in case there isn't an official list out there, I will start off a comment to start a list here. And just in case there is I am commenting so I can be alerted to what others say.

Hi,

we're a CF-heavy webfirm in the Netherlands: Onlinebase (http://onlinebase.nl).

This could be a good starting place:

I'm not sure how up-to-date it is though

Here's a good site also: http://www.gotcfm.com/

Comment 7 by Raymond Camden posted on 3/27/2009 at 6:53 PM

Both of those links are good - but as I mentioned in the beginning - the reader needs to know, specifically, web shops, that offer CF as one of their services.

Comment 8 by Michael Dinowitz posted on 3/27/2009 at 7:05 PM

Some of the companies in Ben's list do ColdFusion work but they have to be picked out 'by hand'. I could write up a fast cross Google search to get web design companies who use ColdFusion but again, they would have to be vetted by hand/eye.

We do all of our websites (some 130+) in ColdFusion.

Let's create that list!

My CF web shop: http://www.mredesign.com
My CF hosting service: http://www.gowesthosting.com
( I do design, programming, hosting, you name it... all CF, all the time )

Comment 11 by Michael Dinowitz posted on 3/27/2009 at 7:31 PM

Any list will have to include size of operations. I'm a one man shop where someplace like figleaf has multiple people.

GOTO LinkedIn ...
SEARCH Companies
QUERY ColdFusion

EOL ...

EWS is a one man shop as well and as short sighted as it is - our only platform is CF (With the usual add ins of jQuery, ajax etc.) But until recently thanks to the 24 hour challenge from Neil Middleton (http://neilmiddleton.com/20... I am trying to add some others.

So you can ad Echo Web services (www.echowebservices.com) to your list. (Southern NH)

ImageTrend in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. We employ roughly 50 ColdFusion developers and are always looking for more talented developers (full timers, not freelancers).

We're a 100% ColdFusion based shop in Orlando, FL and often wonder where the other CF shops are located. If nothing else all these comments might serve as a starting spot for compiling a list.

CF Webtools is a "ColdFusion Shop" located in Omaha, NE. http://www.cfwebtools.com

Comment 17 by Liz Frederick posted on 3/27/2009 at 8:10 PM

There has to be a bunch of shops that came to CFUnited last year that do CF as a service. Some day I'll try to categorize our lists. For a start go to http://tinyurl.com/sponsorc... page 3 has a full list of CF companies that attended.

At the top of my head TeraTech, AboutWeb, Figleaf, Alagad.
Hope that helps.

Comment 18 by Liz Frederick posted on 3/27/2009 at 8:13 PM

I apologize, that's page 2 has the full list. ;-)

Amcom Technology in San Ramon, CA (East Bay area) is a ColdFusion shop. We're a small shop, but we placate ourselves by repeating the mantra that size doesn't matter.

@Charlie: As we all know, it is not the size of the development company but the skills of the coders on board. ;)

Comment 21 by Eric posted on 3/27/2009 at 8:48 PM

Ray, do I smell another domain name purchase?
CFWebShops.com or the like? You could show locations, portfolios, reviews of services provided. And, you could build it entirely with jQuery. ;)

More seriously, I'd say a site like this could be a significant resource and/or a way to make a few extra $$$ with a bit of paid advertising by some of the listed CF shops.

Comment 22 by Raymond Camden posted on 3/27/2009 at 8:51 PM

For personal reasons, I'm not taking on anything new OS/site wise, etc. Life is a bit hectic now. (Noticed the slow down in posts/releases? I have. :)

Not saying it is a bad idea, just that I've got about 100 other things I feel like I'm behind on. (BlogCFC6, RIAForge, etc etc etc.)

Comment 23 by Chris posted on 3/27/2009 at 9:20 PM

@Eric: My thoughts exactly. But, I wasn't going to assume that Ray do it. I was thinking someone else in the CF-sphere would pick up that torch. hehe

My employer: http://www.h2.com/page2a.html - we're currently not hiring atm.

Comment 25 by Eric Hoffman posted on 3/27/2009 at 11:38 PM

We could step up and host a list for sure.

Comment 26 by Joe FitzGerald posted on 3/28/2009 at 12:48 AM

I am in the process of able to produce a reasonably comprehensive list such as this...at least for the US.

I've written a crawler that detects websites using CF (and other app servers). It then cross references with the owners of the servers found and, when a company is found, cross references it with the companies NAICS. It also gathers information such as company size, location and many other pieces of information. I'm hoping to add job openings to the list (as well as highlighted customers) but it is still a pretty early process.

I built it to try to see how many websites were using CF, and which versions of CF were in use and then I decided to take it further. So now it detects web server, other app servers, CF-based frameworks, javascript frameworks...

Then I decided to layer on geolocation and corporate demographic data.

I am currently testing out a subset of the crawling rules against the fortune 500. I expect to have a more comprehensive crawl done in about a month at which point I'll launch it publicly. But one of the core features I hope to start with is a list of web development firms with the ability to filter by technology.

MDi media group is a full service ad agency in Mobile, Alabama. We do all our web work in Coldfusion. As well, we do a lot mobile marketing work in Coldfusion, too, most often interactive text message campaigns (like our text concierge solution for resorts) and our MethText program (http://www.methtext.com). I brought CF with me when I came, and everyone here is glad I did :)

Comment 28 by Danny Gunter posted on 3/28/2009 at 2:49 AM

The company I work for (InSite Interactive) does ColdFusion development. I prefer ColdFusion, but at InSite we're about the right tool for the job and/or what special requirements a client may have. We have a great creative team and technical team, so not only do we do application development, we can create your brand and help with marketing too.

Cheers!

All of our development work is based on ColdFusion.
