A couple of months ago I mentioned that there were changes taking place in the ColdFusion team, and I promised an update (which I am late on posting) …
- ColdFusion has a new Product Manager. Adam Lehman joined Adobe a couple of years ago, first in a sales support role helping the dedicated ColdFusion reps, and then as an evangelist on the Platform Evangelism team. Adam has displayed a passion and a commitment to ColdFusion and the CF community, and he’s become a visible and respected member of the ColdFusion team. And now, as ColdFusion Product Manager, Adam gets to help shepherd “Centaur” and “Bolt” to reality, while working on plans for what comes next.
- So, what about ColdFusion evangelism? Terry Ryan has been an active member of the ColdFusion community for years. He played a key role in the development of ColdFusion powered projects at The Wharton School, has presented at MAX, cfObjective and other events, has written on ColdFusion, and more. And now Terry has joined our Platform Evangelism with a dual role, evangelizing ColdFusion, as well as taking the lead on evangelism efforts around higher education for all of the platform products.
- Tim Buntel has been part of the ColdFusion team for years. And even though he is now officially part of the Flex Builder team, ColdFusion is near and dear to his heart, and he can’t resist staying involved. As such, Tim is spending a considerable amount of time working with Adam on ColdFusion planning, and investing considerable time and energy on ColdFusion Flex integration.
2009 is going to be an exciting year for ColdFusion, and it’s great to have Adam, Terry, and Tim supporting our efforts!
