Ben Forta Holds Forth on ASP.NET and ColdFusion

Macromedia recently published an article by Ben Forta entitled Life After ASP. The basic premise is that ASP developers are going to have to think about migrating pretty soon since ASP is no longer being developed and Microsoft is obviously trying to get developers to start adopting ASP.NET. Ben points out, however, that going from ASP to ASP.NET may not be as easy as it sounds. And if you are already going to make a significant investment in what is essentially a new technology, why not take a look at other options like ColdFusion MX 6.1 for the reasons that all of us already know:

  • ColdFusion is quick and easy to learn.
  • You don’t have to trade power for simplicity.
  • CFMX 6.1 is incredibly feature rich.
  • CFMX 6.1 supports all the right acronyms.
  • Platform independence.

Ben says it much more eloquently than I just did, so go have a look, and make sure you forward it to any friends you have who are using ASP.

    For a laugh you might check out this disjointed, and ill informed rant on how *wrong* Ben is…
