Google I/O Powered By ColdFusion

This one just sent to me by a very excited Ali Daniali. Registration is now open for Google I/O 2010, and the registration site is powered by ColdFusion and Fusebox. Google, we're glad you've discovered online productivity! ;-)

    Derek, I don't doubt that at all, I am sure it's a 3rd party management company. Still, it's cool. ;-)

    I just sent them an email about a possible security threat. I'm not gonna mention what it is here though, so other people don't try it.

    I'm ever so glad when I see a company using, and seeing Google is just marvellous

    Looks like it's hosted on Amazon EC2.

    Yeah, Google not likely to purchase domains through GoDaddy and put a proxy on them ... but still it's nice to have GOOGLE and CFM in the same URL.

    Oh! Facebook uses ColdFusion! ;-)

    Unfortunately (and embarrassingly) for Google the same ColdFusion based registration site totally failed under load for the 2011 Registration that sold out within an hour. Those of us that deal with ColdFusion know that it can scale to handle load peaks like this but I worry that next year we will see a different solution - probably running on Google App Engine - taking registrations.
