Well, an interview I did with Rick Mason from the Mid-Michigan Coldfusion Users Group has been posted as apart of the CFConversations Podcast. If you haven’t heard of the podcast, it is hosted by Brian Meloche as is a great listen if you have anything to do with ColdFusion. And i’m not just saying that because I’m in one of them 😛

During the interview, I went out on a limb, and talked about frameworks. As you probably already know, I’m not a big fan of the popular frameworks that exist in the CF world. Most of them are very big and bulky, and often don’t provide much for you (other than coding standards). I’m a big fan of coding standards (and patters for that matter), just not the frameworks that people use to implement them. Listen to the podcast, you’ll see.
I was expecting to get a ton of email or comments from irate ColdFusion users after this was initally posted, but not a peep. In fact, the comments on Brian’s site were mostly positive :) After talking to Dan Wilson about the subject at 360|Flex in Atlanta, I thought I was the only one who tought this way :) (BTW, if you ever get a chance, talk to Dan. He’s an awesome guy!!)
