Advanced ColdFusion Training: Session 7

Finishing up our ColdFusion 8 Advanced training, based on Adobe's session 10, we look into Application scalability and finding bottlenecks. We then looked at how to use query and template caching and threading to address some of these performance issues. This session was first conducted on October 29, 2009 and took 1.5 hours.

Ye ol' disclaimer: These sessions are not exact copies of the Adobe materials. I sometimes combine their units, and I removed all “homework” and the Dreamweaver dependent stuff. I also often reorder the content order, and rewrite large chunks, adding in my own materials and research where I feel necessary/relevant. As such, any errors here are likely mine. I did, however, retain a few of their example images and some of their basic example code and queries (in which case, errors may also be theirs).
