Announcing CFML Weekly Email

Updated on January 26, 2024
By Pete Freitag

I'm a huge fan of the weekly email newsletters: JavaScript Weekly and HTML5 Weekly from Peter Cooper. Keeping up with technology via blogs, twitter, etc is difficult to do, so getting sent an email summary of important or interesting things saves me a lot of time.

Being an avid ColdFusion developer, I couldn't help but think something like this would be great for ColdFusion as well, so... I created one:

I wanted something super simple to send the emails with, so I choose tinyletter, it's a service that was originally written in CFML by Philip Kaplan, which he sold to MailChimp. I'm not sure if it is still running on CFML after the acquisition, MailChimp favors PHP.

TinyLetter will work until we get to 5000 subscribers, then we will have to choose something else, right now after announcing this on twitter a few minutes ago we already have over 60 subscribers!

The first issue will be sent today!

Update: I have renamed and moved this newsletter off of Tinyletter, it is now called CFBreak

Thanks Ben & Ben I'll try to live up to their high standards :)

@Zarko - you can't really blame them, they love PHP and have expertise in it. If a CFML company acquired an app written in PHP they'd probably consider rewriting it too :)
