Q & A with Adrian

Q: What made you want to speak at Into The Box 2014? 
A: As soon as Luis said, "hey, I'm doing this thing" I was in. I've been using ColdBox and its related tech for four & half years, so of course I wanted to involved with a conference about them. I can't imagine building ColdFusion applications without ColdBox, WireBox and the rest.

Q: What does web development mean to you? 
Web Development is like poker. It looks like a lot of fun on the surface, but underneath, there's a world of knowledge and experience required to do it right. If you're not careful, it can be a grind. It's up to you to keep learning new tricks and keep it fun.

Q: Anything you want to experience during the conference? 
A: I'm hoping for a "wow" factor. Something that jumps out and solves a problem I didn't realize I have.

Q: What advice would you give to your younger self, knowing what you know now? 
Those website ideas you have? Make them happen or someone else will.

Q: This year's lineup of speakers has lots of quality, what other session(s) are you looking forward to attending?
Enterprise Box Architecture, Behavior-Driven Development and Just Mock It! are the three sessions I'm really interested in attending.

We’ll also cover a handful of security issues that have come to light since your legacy code was first created and how to address them with ColdFusion and ColdBox.
