  1. Ben,
    I will investigate your suggestions. But I do have a related and important question. In 2002 I was at the top of my game in ColdFusion development. Applying ColdFusion at a very sophisticated levels — FuseBox, WDDX, database-driven web presentations, parameterized SQL to name a few examples. I was excellent in my work, and promoted every soon in my typically gov’t contracted work effort.
    But in 2002, I needed to take an urgent hiatus from that work to provide family care. Thankfully all of those matters are well and happily resolved. Now I want/need to return to that work, but I am facing a credibility issue with my prospective employers. I am writing to hear your suggestion as to my re-entry effort.
    Thanks,
    Twain

  2. Hi Twain,
    When not just get certified in CF7? That should help lay to rest any skill set issue prospective employers have. And certification combined with your previous experience would be attractive to employers..
    If you want to go for this the best tools are:
    Ben’s CF7 Certification Study Guide (and NO i’m not on commission!)
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Macromedia-Coldfusion-Certified-Developer-Study/dp/0321330110/ref=sr_1_6/203-9915814-7977547?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1176891636&sr=1-6
    And the CF Buster exam tool

    These 2 tools and a bit of practice and you should get through the exam fine!
    Good Luck
    Mark
