In this show Dave and Scott are joined by Mark Mandel to discuss the latest release of ColdSpring 2 Alpha 1, touching on AOP, dependency injection and "drinking the Kool-Aid".
They also cover Google's announcement about it's new programming language "Dart" and try to decide on it's effectiveness, usefulness and eligibility within current web development. As a precursor to a forthcoming show, they also take a preliminary look at Ryan Anklam's ColdFusion Koans project, and remind listeners to vote for and submit session topics for cf.Objective() 2012.
Listener questions (however obscure) are also answered in the "Ask CFHour" segment of the show.
