Fusion Authority Quarterly Update Fall 2006

October 22, 2006 ·

Have you subscribed to the Fusion Authority Quarterly Update yet? Why not? It's a high-quality, information-packed journal that is light on adverts and heavy on technical material you can use. Issue 1 (Summer 2006) covered a lot of things in ColdFusion MX 7 that you might be missing, written by developers who are reaping a lot of benefits from those features. Issue 2 (Fall 2006) will cover OOP and frameworks and I can tell you that it'll be a great issue and a must-have journal! How do I know it's so great? Because I've been involved with reviewing all of the content over the last several weeks. A huge amount of work has gone into creating a very professional, feature-packed issue that is beautifully designed and easy to read. Props to the editorial and design team behind it. So hurry over to the Fusion Authority site and subscribe - and pick up a copy of Issue 1 while stocks last!

    I just want to plus one this. I can't recommend FA enough. As a writer from their first issue - I can attest that their editorial process is quite intense (brutal I'd say ;).

    Just got to say the editorial quality of FAQU is AMAZING. I was lucky enough to go through the process of submitting an article and I was forced to really think through a bunch of the underlying principles before getting the article approved.

    Many thanks to Judith, Sean et al for all of their hard work. I think it is one of the best technical resources available for CF developers and that is a function of the care that goes into vetting each article - very impressive!

    It's that editorial process and attention to detail which is also our bane. The first issue was 80 pages. The second was promised to be 100. The actual issue size is about 150 pages. We didn't want to cut content or reduce article size, so this is the result.

    All of our subscribers (till end of month) will recieve the PDF for free and then the physical issue. Everyone at MAX will get a CD with both issues on it as well as software from our advertisers (of which we have 3.25 this issue).

    All of our authors did a massive job on the issue and all our thanks to them and you, Sean, for your help and torture of us. :)

    And I would like to add -- thanks to Dee Sadler, our Creative Director, and Dana Tierney, our Assistant Editor, for their hard work and help in making this all happen.
