william eatman contemplating change

I feel like I've been a long hold out for not moving to cfscript. Sure I've used it, but I've always been a fan of the tag markup. My rationale has been that the tag language could do things that cfscript could not. I've never bought into the argument that cfscript would save me time, as time programming is usually spent problem solving and not actually typing the code.

Over the past week I have been looking at new open source CF projects and can see that many have embraced cfscript, so much so that my guess is that CF 9 will age much faster than CF 8 did. CF 10 does a good job filling in the holes cfscript had as well as adding advanced features like closures. In fact, it looks like I can now do more with cfscript than the tag markup. Maybe cfscript has grown up?
