I was emailing back and forth with a very smart group of people this morning and had a thought that seemed worth repeating. ColdFusion is the most elegant language to express business solutions.
Need charts for your dashboard? No problem.
Want to export a report to PDF? No problem.
Want to intake data via PDF forms and generate Presentations with the data? No problem.
Want to write a Flex application that adds meetings to Microsoft Exchange servers? No problem.
ColdFusion is often lumped in with PHP and other general web scripting languages, and it can certainly fit there. However, the ColdFusion team over the years has worked very hard to put useful, relevant functionality for business applications. As a result, ColdFusion is the most elegant expression of business solutions on the market today!
