ColdFusion (ColdFusion Markup Language, or CFML) was big a couple of decades back, but—similar to Java and PHP—it’s got staying power, a thriving community, plenty of open-source resources, and a trending line that doesn’t show its “death” anywhere on the horizon.
As an Adobe platform, ColdFusion is not free, but there are plenty of open-source engines alive and well that leverage the benefits of this powerful language. In fact, CFML’s legacy is best demonstrated by the big names who still actively use it, brands like Apple, Intel, AT&T, CSX Transportation, Lockheed Martin, and the FDA.
