The Online ColdFusion Meetup

(Exact location not available) , Alpharetta, US

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday September 8 will be "Creating Secure Applications with the New TrafficMunkey Framework", with Peter Oliver-Krueger.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

TrafficMunkey is a new ColdFusion framework born from the Lean Development process, i.e. lots of prototyping and agile development.  It's quick and easy-to-use, both when starting new projects and maintaining existing ones.  This presentation will start with a demonstration of its speed by creating on-the-fly wireframes, as you might with clients.  Then I'll show you how to leverage the built-in objects for prototyping and the graphic design.  I'll wrap up by showing how it can integrate everything with your own ColdFusion objects. More on TrafficMunkey at http://millionmunkeys.net/TrafficMunkey/.

I do a lot of work with prototypes, for Usability testing, and as a requirements-gathering technique to get clients to tell me what they don't know they need to tell me.  I've used and trained people on most of the major ColdFusion frameworks through the years, but none of them were flexible enough for the early stages of a project, when names and concepts keep changing and whole sections of the application move around.  To be honest, usually I would do this outside of a framework, and then move it into a framework when things settled down.  Perhaps you've done that as well.  With TrafficMunkey you don't have to do that.  It becomes a tool to help with prototyping, and keeps working for you through production, making maintenance and upgrades easier as well.

Even if you're not familiar with frameworks, TrafficMunkey is pretty straightforward, so it should be pretty easy to follow along and get started.

This presentation will cover the basics of using the new framework, including:

  • Building wireframes on-the-fly with a client
  • Mapping exit points (a.k.a. XFAs)
  • Integrating Graphic Design templates
  • Managing site security
  • Integrating ColdFusion objects

Learning Objectives:

  • Creating a TrafficMunkey sitemap
  • Using site templates and dynamic navigation
  • Adding roles for authentication and security
