Tired of writing SQL queries day and night? Tired of writing an abstraction layer on your queries to make your application more scaleable? Tired of optimizing your queries!? Well ORM is for you!. Taking Advantage of ColdFusion ORM will give you the understanding needed to build powerful applications, as well as learning some cool tricks to make them even more powerful with caching, relationships, HQL and much much more.
As of ColdFusion 9 you have the ability to create database driven applications by writing virtually no SQL statements using ORM. You can use this server-side feature on the client-side in an AIR application.
This session will talk you through the basics of using the ColdFusion ORM in AIR and how to "automagically" synchronise your local data with a remote ColdFusion 9 server. That's not all: we'll go one step further and take that ability to create database driven applications onto the mobile platform as well. Like that.
