Why Is Lucee So Much Better At Handling JSON?

There was a Twitter conversation today where Ben Nadel mentioned that one of the continuing issues with ColdFusion was bad JSON support. I assume by that, he’s referring to CF’s tendency to change the datatype of variables while serializing them. I mentioned that Lucee Server has much better support for this and I’d like to show very quickly why this is.

ColdFusion on Exercism

http://exercism.io/languages/coldfusion/about

Exercism is many things: An experiment. A bunch of interesting people. Chaotic. An open source project.

ColdFusion joins the open source code learning platform Exercism. Learn more CFML and/or teach others; looks like a worthy cause :slight_smile:

Yet another h/t @bdw429s :tada:

CFML Secrets with Patrick Quinn (AWS, Lucee and SeeFusion)

Patrick Quinn talks about “CFML Secrets (AWS, Lucee and SeeFusion” in this episode of ColdFusion Alive podcast with host Michael Smith. He is the CoFounder, CEO and CTO of Webapper and Global Product manager at LAS.

“We think doing more of what we’ve been doing would be the best way to make CFML a more “alive” community. For Webapper’s part, we’ve updated our offerings to include Amazon cloud hosting, released 3 new versions of our SeeFusion product in the past year (including with AWS integrations), and, most importantly, we’ve put our financial and technical backing behind Lucee, the F/OSS CFML platform. In our opinion, Lucee is the most exciting and energetic force in the CFML world. We think it’s the future of CFML, and we’re excited to watch it grow, and to be a part of that growth with our Lucee-centered products and services.”
Patrick Quinn (aka @IamSigmund)
