I am really glad to be back in the US for the CFML Government Conference and MuraCon. The Government Conference is taking place on October 9th in Washington, DC. This is the first conference organized by the OpenCFML Foundation and as far as I know it is one of the first events that presents CFML solutions for government agencies and organizations.
I will be there for this event and for MuraCon on October 10th and 11th and I will present about the upcoming release of Railo 4.0 due this month. If you want to meet me in person or you want to chat about Railo, I am more than happy to help out.
See you in Washington. And if you haven't reserved for the OpenCFML Foundation event you can do so on the official website.
Conference · Railo 4.0
Last week, most of the Railo team were at the cf.Objective() conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is a great conference for us as we love showing the new things we have been working on to a live audience.
This year, we had the opportunity to show off some of the great new features of Railo 4.0 which we will be releasing a public beta in June. But this year was also special, we had a different announcement to make and this is what we are really excited about.
Railo Technologies, the company behind Railo Server is evolving. We have been working with a number of companies in Europe and the US to bring to you a new entity called "The Railo Company". This new version of Railo Technologies will be the next iteration of our plans to bring to you the best CFML Server platform, not just for the next few years but to guarantee the development of the Railo Server for the next 10 years and more.
The investors are a range of European companies that have been delivering CFML based solutions for many years and with their support and knowledge we can see a bright future ahead.
Some of the companies are well known to you, some not so much so, but our investors are:
Gert Franz, CEO of Railo Technologies said:
This is a watershed moment for Railo as we can now promise the continued quality and innovation that has marked Railo’s development to date and ensure the global market that Railo is here to stay.
I am very happy with the newly founded Railo company and the trust the investing companies around the world put into us. It will give us the unique opportunity to guarantee the existence of CFML for the next 10-15 years. Lots of companies have invested heavily into CFML, trained and educated their staff and released lots of software based on CFML.
This venture allows them to continue trusting what I truly think is the best development platform for the web.
What will change for you?
Nothing will change for most of our users, you will be getting the same Open Source engine, but now with added resources dedicated to adding features, fixing bugs and providing documentation. We will be announcing a number of incentives and licensing options over the next few months.
What is a major boon is the knowledge that you will have a stable company, with strong backers with no hinderance to the brand itself.
In essence what we are saying to all CFML developers is:
CFML is HERE TO STAY
We are MARKETING it
We are SUPPORTING it
We are DEVELOPING it
For the next 10 years and foreseeable future

We just came back from MuraCon in Sacramento that took place last week on Thursday and Friday (25th & 26th of August). We were represented by a larger portion of the Railo team. Sean, Mark, Tanja, Denny & Gert were present there and we met several people from the community to talk to them about Railo, how they use it and what things they would like to have in the next version. We were very pleased to hear that almost everyone told us how happy they are with the speed of the execution and the easy update process.
We were able to sort some bugs out with Greg Moser from Slatwall, so that now Slatwall works fine with the latest version of Railo 3.3 (which is 3.3.0.027) and we saw the excitment about the shortly upcoming release. We had some very interesting conversations with Matt Levine from Blueriver about the clustering capabilities of Railo and on how easy it is to use the clustered cache and the session storage. Mark, Denny and Gert showed off some of the great features of Railo 3.3 and 4.0 with the first demo of Railo 4.0 Alpha (in this case the CLI).
Mark's and Gert's slides.
Thank you everyone for visiting us at our booth and talking to us about Railo and on the different aspects on how to use Mura in an enterprise clustered environment. And many thanks of course to Blueriver who organized this great first Mura conference.
We will definitely be back next year.

Mark Drew will be heading to attend the D2WC conference in Kansas City next week (14-16th of July) and the team decided to take this opportunity to provide a training course to allow existing and new Railo Server users to get certified in the Railo Administrator course.
The course is two days long and covers areas such as installation, configuration and management of Railo Servers.
For more details and to sign up to the course, why not check out the announcement

Railo is proud to be part of the OpenCF Summit coming up in February 2011 in Garland, TX. We think this is an exciting opportunity for folks to learn more about all aspects of open source software development in the CFML world, as well as learning more about the open source CFML engines themselves.
On day three of the conference, both Railo and OpenBD have extended sessions (90+ minutes) which can dive deep into the engines in various ways. As we're starting to plan that session, we want your input! If you're attending OpenCF Summit, what would you like to hear about in that hour and a half?
Do you want to learn more about the history of Railo? The future of Railo? A deep dive into specific features in Railo? The process behind developing - and contributing to - the engine? Something else?
Let us know in the comments or via email to sean at getrailo dot org (I'll be speaking about CFML and the Open Source Landscape during the main conference track and have another topic submission under consideration - you can vote for proposals and suggestions in the OpenCF Summit "Engage" application).

People already know how well Railo does at running existing CFML code. In this contest we will challenge you to look into some of the cool Railo only features to see what you could code in just 4kb (about 100 lines of code) using Railo. We'll post/comment on all submissions, and the winner gets a free ticket to cf.Objective(). Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org before April 1st (anywhere in the world) for a chance to win!
Have a look at the additional Railo features here:
Some additional ideas, Maybe someone wants to write a new cool debugging template:
Update: Being programmers, we prefer more details. A question of white space came up on the mailing list. Gert's response was, "The compiled class needs to be within 4K." Hope this helps someone considering this challenge for an awesome conference ticket.
I am happy to say that at this year's CeBIT in Hannover, Germany we are joining the stand of our partners Contens
We are very proud that both Contens and Intergral are increasingly relying on Railo as a CFML engine. If you like to visit us, we have many new things we can show you and we might even help you with some problems. If you need any assistance from the best Railo programmers come see us in hall 6 stand J32
. On one of the days Mark Drew
will be there as well.
We're looking forward to seeing you in Hannover in 2 March! If you want to meet us there either contact us
or fill out the form on the contens homepage
