ColdBox, ColdFusion, KCDevCore, MVC, Object Oriented Design (OOP)
Last Tuesday I presented on the ColdBox Framework to my local Kansas City user group with an emphasis on the new 3.0 features like WireBox. Here is the slide deck I used.


Generating Primes Revisited: My Modifications To The Sieve of Eratosthenes

ColdFusion, Java, Mathmatics, Performance
In a recent pissing match between ColdFusion and PHP, Jared Rypka-Hauer was demonstrating the performance of a function that generated prime numbers. The discussion really wasn't about the BEST prime generator as much as it was about how much ColdFusion can kick PHP's puny butt all over town. Never the less, I piped up in the comments to ask Jared to compare a prime number generator that I wrote a while back based on the Sieve of Eratosthene. After Jared asked some good questions about how my code worked I figured it was time I stopped high-jacking the comments of the PHP pooper train. I decided to spin off a new post to highlight some significant performance gains I was able to produce.
