Using AWS Rekognition in CFML: Matching Faces from Two Images [+]
Brian Klass | 8/13/18 8:00 AM
Rekognition has the ability to compare two images of a person and determine if they are the same person based on the features of the faces in each image. Rekognition can do this even when the images are of the same person over years, or decades. Like other machine learning systems, this feature is subject to bias and error, but in my work with the feature, it works quite well.

Kinky Solutions | 8/11/18 6:00 AM | HTML / CSS, Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel showcases the style.setProperty() method in JavaScript. This allows you to update CSS styles; but, unlike mutating the style object directly, the .setProperty() method allows you to keep your CSS names consistent in both CSS and JavaScript....

Node.js for the Non-Node.js Developer [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/10/18 11:00 AM | nodejs, javascript, coldfusion
Quick note: When I first wrote this article, it was entirely meant for ColdFusion developers who were interested in learning Node. After talking to my buddy Brian Rinaldi, he felt it would be useful for folks interested in learning Node in general. So I changed the title and URL, but kept the rest of the text as is. I think he is right and if you’re doing web dev in any server-side language, I think this might be very useful helping you grok

Using "Safe Updates" To Prevent Unbounded UPDATE And DELETE Statements In MySQL [+]
Kinky Solutions | 8/10/18 6:00 AM | ColdFusion, SQL
Ben Nadel explores the "safe updates" mode in MySQL which prevents unbounded UPDATE and DELETE statements from executing (and, to a variable degree, limits SELECT and JOIN size as well). This could provide a really nice local-development feedback loop!...

Language improvements have been considered based on use-cases that make more sense in today’s world, and while also taking into consideration all the bugs and enhancements logged by the community. Significant enhancements are Null Support – with ColdFusion now Null aware, working alongside other technologies such as JavaScript has become a whole lot easier.

Node.js for the ColdFusion Developer [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/9/18 5:00 PM | nodejs, javascript, coldfusion
Last year at what is - most likely - the last cfObjective, I gave a presentation on Node.js specifically for ColdFusion developers. As a former (except for some minor side work from time to time) ColdFusion developer myself, I shared what I liked, what I didn’t, and what confused the heck out of me when learning Node. My intent was not to provide an “intro to Node”, since so many of those resources exist, but rather to focus on the particular things t

Waiting on VERY Large Data Transfers [+]
Trunkful.com | 8/8/18 5:40 PM | AWS
What do you do while waiting for very large data transfers to complete? By large I'm talking upwards of Terabytes. My mind wanders and suddenly the theme for Rawhide gets stuff in my mind! But it's different. The music is similar, but the words have changed. It's almost like Dust Puppy was singing the song. Flowin' Flowin' Flowin' Flowin' Flowin' Flowin' Flowin' Flowin' Flowin' Flowi

Adding Your YouTube Videos to Your Static Site on Netlify [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/8/18 9:00 AM | javascript, static sites
Earlier this month I wrote up a blog post demonstrating how to use client-side JavaScript to render a list of your YouTube videos on your site (“Adding Your YouTube Videos to Your Static Site with Vue.js”). This works well and didn’t use any “fancy” JavaScript that would be problematic for older browser (ok technically fetch is a bit modern bu

Matthew J. Clemente | 8/6/18 8:15 PM
This post started as an investigation of how best to extract text from a PDF; it then turned into an exploration of PDFBox, lead me down the rabbit hole of PDF sanitization, and ultimately resulted in developing pdfbox.cfc.

It's "Retired" Jim! [+]
Trunkful.com | 8/6/18 1:34 PM | AWS
In another chapter of "The Cloud Never Crashes", I woke up Sunday to one of my AWS instances that was 'crashed' with a notice of "Amazon EC2 Instance scheduled for retirement". Retirement? What does that mean? I went to check my email and realized that the "retired" instance was the email server. Doh! It took me a little while to figure out what they meant. It means this "An instance is scheduled to be retired when AWS detects irreparable failure of the underlying hardware hosting the
