Peachpit's new Reality series extends a very special invitation: join a development team as it works its way through real-world projects from start to finish. In Reality ColdFusion MX: Intranets and Content Management, author Ben Forta and his team take you behind the scenes of intranet design, from the initial planning and brainstorming sessions, all the way through implementation of the final products.
Forta, a ColdFusion expert and evangelist, talks to you as one professional developer to another as he explains design considerations, walks you through the decision-making process, and points out key development challenges and their solutions. His insider approach makes you an active, integral part of the virtual design team, not just a passive reader; he teaches best practices and good design implicitly, by example. Once you're ready to strike out on your own, turn to the companion Web site, which is loaded with full-fledged intranet and e-business applications (including a mail client, scheduling program, user directory, content-management system, and threaded discussions) that you can put to work immediately as standalone apps or as an integrated suite of programs. These highly configurable applications save you time and money, letting you start your projects with tested, high-quality code. Reality ColdFusion MX: Intranets and Content Management is a one-stop resource for intermediate-to-advanced Flash and ColdFusion developers who want to design professional-quality intranets from scratch.
