Fusebox is a free web application standard that was created as a standard for writing web applications. (This methodology is supported and promoted by Allaire/Macromedia.) The aim of this methodology is to reduce the high failure rate of these applications. If a team of developers uses Fusebox to write ColdFusion applications, the applications will be written more quickly and effectively because they will all code according to the same standard. Nat and Jeffrey start the book by explaining the benefits of using Fusebox and then teach how to use Fusebox's features, demonstrated as they build an application throughout the book. The authors go on to explain concepts such as the Fusebox lifecycle process, testing, and deployment. The companion web site serves as a interactive tool while reading this book. The web site includes databases, files, and code from this book; current enhancements and revisions to the material in this book; links to other Fusebox resources; the latest updates to the core of Fusebox, for any version.

About the AuthorsAbout the Authors Jeff Peters has been messing around with computers since "terminal" meant a teletype. He is currently a program manager with Operational Technologies Services in Vienna, Virginia, a member of the Fusebox Council, and an occasional seminar speaker and instructor. When Jeff's not pushing bits around, he can often be found remodeling rooms with his wife and daughter, or noodling around on bass and guitar. Jeff maintains a Fusebox-related web site at http://www.grokfusebox.com. Nat Papovich, as a member of the Fusebox Council that oversees the development of the standard, has contributed to the formalization of many popular Fusebox concepts and was instrumental in the release of version 3.0. Nat is a Senior Partner and Lead Architect at fusium, offering application development and project consulting, Fusebox training and mentoring, along with tools and products for developers. In addition to being a frequent speaker at ColdFusion events and conferences nationwide, he has written and contributed to many other Fusebox publications. Currently residing in Portland, Oregon, Nat enjoys climbing, biking, and astronomy. He can be reached at email@example.com. (c) Copyright Pearson Education. All rights reserved.
