Getting Started with ColdFusion at UNT

By Claudia Lynch, Benchmarks Online Editor

There seems to be quite a bit of interest in ColdFusion these days so, since the Web folks are taking a break from writing this month, I thought I would further recap some resources available to you here at UNT to get you started using ColdFusion. Shannon Peevey, in UNT Central Web Support, started a series of articles called "Getting Started With ColdFusion at UNT" in September of 2001. You can read the series here:

  1. Getting Started With ColdFusion at UNT

  2. Your First ColdFusion Application

  3. Using ColdFusion: Making a Connection to a Database

  4. Dealing With Empty Variable Names In ColdFusion

  5. The Quest for ColdFusion: Control Structures

  6. The Quest for ColdFusion: Loop-Da-Loop

Shannon also teaches a Short Course called "Introduction to Macromedia ColdFusion." There are no classes left this semester, but it will be offered again in the fall. Please consult the ACS Short Course page for more information. The ColdFusion classes are listed at the bottom of the page. It is recommended that you have some knowledge of SQL before taking this class. Computer-based training on SQL is available via the UNT SmartForce Server.
