MVC for the Rest of Us
This presentation will cover the high-level benefits of MVC for CF
developers, some key concepts of MVC as it is often implemented in CFML,
and some simple techniques to show how both back-end coders and
front-end designers can quickly benefit from MVC. Many of the presented
ideas will also be demonstrated through a simple example application
written in Model-Glue, a popular MVC framework for CFML.
The speaker for this session, Dennis Clark, works for the Carolinas Healthcare System to construct Web application back-ends in ColdFusion and integrate them with a variety of enterprise clinical and administrative systems. Dennis gets most of his open-source kicks as an active contributor to the Model-Glue framework, but he also contributes to other open-source CFML projects such as ColdSpring and Validat (a validation framework from Alagad, Inc).
