RE: [xml-dev] <offtopic>Opinions About Cold Fusion</offtopic>

My guess about the gig I'm looking at pre-interview is they are doing the
kinds of things that CF and Dreamweaver do well.  I spent some time at the
local CompSci library (Barnes and Nobles) this afternoon.  CF and DW are
basic stuff that was pretty basic when I did it in PFE, so possibly a nice
clean job to have (come in on time, put on headphones, code pages, take off
headphones, go home.  Code 3D.  Get up and Repeat.).  I spent the remaining
time looking at a good OpenGL text.

I was delighted to see a Professional Web 2.0 book with authors who's names
are regulars on this list.  Cool!

I'd take this a step further and assert that because of specific
limitation of the cold fusion environment, your attempts to solve
complex problems using elegant and well known design patterns are often
going to be foiled.

Completely in my own opinion: In descending order of elegance, languages
that are popular for web development and suport good coding practices by
design are:

 - ruby
 - python
 - java (using JSP or similar)
 - perl and .net (tied)
 - javascript and php (tied)
 - cold fusion
 - java (using velocity)
