The Conference-Edition podcast aims to provide a one-of-a-kind insight on Into the Box 2020. This episode was no exception as our host, Gavin Pickin, talked more about the famous Zero to Hero workshop.
For the first time in Into the Box history, we will have a workshop dedicated to Quick ORM. In this Conference Edition episode, we talk with Eric Peterson, Software Consultant for Ortus Solutions and creator of Quick.
Before continuing, we need to define a few terms. ORM is a pattern and stands for object relational mapper. It maps ColdFusion components, in this case, to the database. Before Quick, most people using an ORM with CFML dealt with a built-in solution based on Hibernate. Quick is not based on Hibernate or any built-in solution, but it is built completely in CFML. (It's actually built on top of some other libraries like qb, a query builder library that some people might be familiar with.)
In this workshop, Eric will teach attendees how to get started with Quick. They will learn how to integrate Quick in both in new projects and existing projects. They’re going to learn what a Quick entity is, how to define them, how to define relationships between entities, and how to grab that data from the database. They're going to talk about how to eliminate duplicate query logic, some common performance pitfalls with any database-driven application, and how Quick helps you solve them.
This year, we are fortunate enough to have Adobe by our side again as our partner at Into the Box 2020. With the support of Adobe, we have been able to work and expand within the ColdFusion community, not only in the United States, but also with our initiatives in Latin America. Their help has been invaluable in ensuring that our conferences are a huge success.
As the undisputed trailblazer in the business, Adobe has been the frontrunner in innovation with their wide range of products and services. By providing a complete digital experience, Adobe offers thousands of business solutions to their clients. It comes as no surprise that Adobe has become a household name.
As such, we are honored to have them sponsoring Into the Box 2020 again, where developers and individuals come together in search for the latest in ColdFusion and Web Development, its engaging workshops, and full-days of non-stop conferences. Make sure then to stop by their booth, so you can get the latest on Adobe products and news.
