This is what irritates me about coldfusion, i love to code. But if i don't code the way everyone else does, that somehow makes me a crappy coder.
If your happy with the way you work, so be it.
But we have to think more than just short term.
What if you died, and no one using your specific method was available for hire, and had to hire any variation of a coldfusion developer, how easy is it to take off from where you were to make changes, understandable.
But instead of seeing that as a practical need, you see that somehow as an attack on your favorite framework.
And honestly it really is irritating, the constant insinuations, the evangelization, join us, be with the good coders.
Because if your not with us, your against us.
That is totally purille.
I am not here out to defame or destroy the way you code..
But like with any method, even how you vacuum your home, there are pros and cons of every method of doing anything. And i try to bring up a few things, not because i want to hurt, insult or destroy your framework or methodology, but because I want to bring it to your attention as something to think about.
Is it so hard to admit that your framework or method of choice has flaws?
I know i try to always improve how I do things, make sure I understand the short term and long term costs of the way I do things.
All I ever wanted was to stop coldfusion from producing bad code, but you just can't believe that the way to do that may not be your way. And I am not saying my way is 100% perfect, there is no such thing.
Let's grow up a tad, and stop pushing X framework as the solution of all problems...
I may disagree with you,, but I don't hate you for disagreeing with me.
But it seems the more i try to participate in helping this industry grow as a blogger.
The more i get hate mail or the wrongful assumption i am trying to hurt or destroy someone's framework.
I honestly do not see OO or Java as the way to be the best coders, that's my humble opinion. It may work for you, and htat's fine I am not trying to persuade you one way or the other.
I was only trying to have a logical discussion.
But instead I get comments like, well you've not used OO or OOP, so your obviously a low quality programmer.
Is that what Hal Helms and Steve Nelson and other greats really had in mind when they had these ideas for improving coldfusion, that it's our way or the highway?
Where are all the nice people in coldfusion?
