Recently I've been hard at work trying to understand the core principles of OO programming in ColdFusion. Last week Ben Nadel shared his experiences at a week-long course devoted to OOP with Hal Helms (the summary, which can be found here, also has links to his daily briefs). His posts opened my eyes to a couple of concepts that are now new to me, and since I'm on a new project I thought it'd be a great opportunity to try them out. As you know from my previous posts, I'm also trying to implement IoC (Coldspring) and ORM (Transfer-ORM) frameworks into my project, so figuring out where these two stand in relation to what I think I now know about OOP is my next challenge.
