After redesigning a couple websites recently, I’ve run across a common mistake that I see frequently: missing calls to action on key pages.
After learning Ruby on Rails, I played around a little with a few of the open source content management system options available, and one in particular stood out for what I typically need: Alchemy CMS.
This post will cover a fairly standard CFWheels solution using nested properties and a sprinkling of jQuery.
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities can be quite a serious problem if you’re not careful. And if you’re using a framework like CFWheels, you need to be extra careful to protect your output from rendering malicious content.
In this post, I suggest that you must always use a formatting function like
NumberFormat when outputting any dynamic value.
I recently released a little Ruby gem with a fix for HTTP connectivity via the
Net::HTTP SSL Fix Ruby gem’s README:
No more / (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻!
But you probably want a more detailed description of the gem’s purpose, so here it is:
Net::HTTPcertificate authority file hack. Very useful for authoring Ruby-based HTTP clients that must run on Windows.
Read my post Clobber Windows Ruby HTTPS connectivity issues with the new
Net::HTTP SSL Fix gem for more information.
In this post, I hope to persuade you that you will rarely ever need the
Tag-based form helpers (
selectTag, etc.) in your CFWheels apps ever again.
“How?” you ask.
The answer: through the use of a wonderful feature that we affectionately call tableless models.
Released along with the beta of Live Editor platform at the end of the year will be a tool tailored just for web designers: Live Editor CLI.

It’s been my goal to publish a new blog post approximately every 10 days. Sounds fairly reasonable and realistic, right? Professionals meet their deadlines, so it’s important for me to keep my promise to myself.
10 days ago, I missed my deadline. No post.

When you’re developing software like I am, the conventional thinking is that you must build up your email marketing list now, at all costs, so you can blast your message at everyone continually after launch.
I’m taking a different approach.

You’re probably like I was also: curious about Docker and what it could do for you. If you’re familiar with CFWheels, this is a great way to jump in and see if it’s right for you
