Cold Fusion was a natural for me coming from a DOS and Windows Foxpro (and, before then, Unisys MAPPER) background. Using Cold Fusion with Foxpro, I cut a FDA Submittal process for them down from a whopping 6 weeks to a miniscule 30 minutes because they could "play" with the data continually instead of waiting for a programmer to generate reports and results.

Pick up a book by Ben Forta called the Web Application Construction Kit. It will walk novices and experts alike through the process such that before you know it you're programming in Cold Fusion. What appeals most to me is that you can utilize your database knowledge as Cold Fusion is heavily data-based in its architecture.

I just need to re-remember the Fox-FTP stuff, see how that is different from what I did for a bodyshop program back in 5.0.

Randy,

Thanks for the tip. I will put "Web Application Construction Kit" on my "Christmas List."
