A friend of mine at church is a CF developer for some type of non-profit. He makes pretty good money, and says there is a high demand for CF programmers. He has been encouraging me to learn it, and I have made a couple of attempts at it, but each time I get into it, I find myself disgusted by it. I have programming experience, some C/C++, PHP, Visual Basic, Perl, and I look at ColdFusion and in my eyes it isn't even a programming language. It seems more like a hodge-podge of scripts piled together for HTML coders to be able to quickly create a database-driven web site. Which is fine, I suppose, but why is it so popular and in demand? Is it merely because it has Macromedia/Adobe behind it?
