Today's freebie is going to go over the heads of most of us educators. But if you're a computer programming teacher or want to to get your hands on just the right programming software for your bright geek, this one is for you.
Adobe wrote the following description of ColdFusion:
What Is ColdFusion?
Initially, developing highly interactive and data-rich sites was a difficult process. Writing custom Web-based applications was a job for experienced programmers only. A good working knowledge of Unix was a prerequisite, and experience with traditional development or scripting languages was a must.
But all that has changed. Macromedia's ColdFusion enables you to create sites every bit as powerful and capable as those listed earlier, without a long and painful learning curve. In fact, rather than being painful, the process is actually fun! (text taken from the Adobe Press blog)
Here's the exciting& free part:
