ITB2019 - Meet Pete Freitag

Tell us about...

Tell us something funny about yourself?

I can do the floss (thanks kids!)


Why should companies or developers modernize?

As a business owner and a developer, the biggest advantage I see to modernizing is reducing burdens. It could be administrative burdens (simplify server admin by using docker or lambda), cognitive burdens (organized workflows, reduce manual steps), etc. It is not about following the latest fads, you still have to weed out what is a fad, and what actually adds value and improves your process.


Why is ColdFusion (CFML) still relevant?

Because (1+1 == 2) in CFML. Unless that statement becomes false in CFML it will continue to work, and get the job done for many many years to come.


What would you like to experience during the conference?

II'm always looking to learn something new at conferences. It is a good way window shop various techniques and technologies without actually having to invest in fully learning it. Then after the conference I eventually start learning and implementing those techniques and technologies that resonated well with me.


Which speaker at ITB do you want to sit down and ask a few questions?

George Murphy, besides talking to him about Terraform, I would probably also ask him about fishing. George is always fun to chat with.


Why should attendees go to your session?

It doesn't get much more cutting edge than running CFML on AWS Lambda. Whether you have used Lambda before or not, there should be quite a bit to learn for anyone willing to attend. Also this is one of the few opportunities you may have to hear me talk about something besides security ;-)


What is your favorite *Box Product and why?

CommandBox - it is the swiss army knife that every CFML developer should have on their belt. I use it every day.

Tell us about...

Why should companies or developers modernize?

To stay ahead of the competition, to take advantage of recent innovations and make their lives easier, to stay relevant, to give your customers and teammates the best experience possible.


Why is ColdFusion (CFML) still relevant?

CFML has all the fun language and ecosystem benefits that the JavaScript/Node community rave about. Plus it has several baked-in features that make it THE tool for integrating with other systems. I run a consulting business; we try to be objective and pick the right tool for the given project. 9 times out of 10 we pick CFML first.


What would you like to experience during the conference?

Into The Box is always a great place to learn the truly cutting edge things being done in the CFML space. I expect to attend several great sessions and learn more modern techniques for using CFML in 2019


Which speaker at ITB do you want to sit down and ask a few questions?

Brian Klaas always does a fantastic job; I learn a lot from his presentations. I'm also a big fan of talks by Eric Peterson and Matthew Clemente. Looking forward to seeing all of them.


Why should attendees go to your session?

There is so much promo about how the Node ecosystem has made JavaScript a "run anywhere" language. The truth is, we a very similar set of functionality in the CFML space with CommandBox. My session will help shed some light on how easy it is to use CommandBox to get a lot of the same benefits one gets from Node and npm. The CFML community really can get those same benefits with the tools already available to them!


What is your favorite *Box Product and why?

CommandBox. As part of my consulting business we often flip between several projects in a given week. Being able to spin up servers that match my client specifications with a simple command line tool saves us tons of work
