Hey folks! I've been on here a year or two but am trying to get more involved. I'm from Upstate NY, where I love to bike the country roads and ski and ice skate in the cold winters.

I've done this web dev thing for eight years now - I worked for an agency for years, building hundreds of website frontends and dozens upon dozens of custom programming projects - website translation system, donation forms, spreadsheet data imports, etc. Now I build REST APIs for a remote company specializing in ERP systems for trailer manufacturers.

I mainly code in Coldfusion. I'm tired of being told my language is "dead", so I'm committing myself to blog about it and hopefully dispel some of the rumors. CF is just as viable as any other backend language, only it's usually a lot quicker to code.
