    ColdFusion books


    I've been programming with ColdFusion for 7 years, at my current place of employment it's only now that I've convinced them to upgrade to CF9.

    I have several things I wish to learn more about:

    Making the most of CF9, OOP practices and the overview of everything ColdFusion - I'm sure there are things I've missed that I could have been using to make my life easier.

    The first book that springs to mind is Ben Forta's WACK

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Adobe-ColdFusion-Web-Application-Construction/dp/0321679202/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1319190005&sr=8-4

    The last WACK book I had was Coldfusion MX..

    What would be worth my while? Vol2/3? do I need another book on OOP.

    Cheers for suggestions,.

    The WACK is the best overall resource. But if you plan to use the new ORM features, I'd recommend http://www.coldfusionormbook.com/ as well.

    Cheers Kiteless - I'll start with WACK if I find I'm heading in the direction of ORM then I'll look this one up.

    bahh...what am I saying - if i know it, I can use it! I think i'll get it

    Got my John Wrish ORM book today - really enjoying it.. getting excited about how I could be using it!!

    It would be nice to write my own ecommerce application.
