Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
it seems that people stopped developing CF Custom tags in about 2004.
I've been developing in CF for 10 years now, with no plans to quit.
There's definitely a larger base of ASP & PHP developers. And I can't recall recently hearing of a PHP or ASP site converting to CF, whereas I have heard of migrations in the other direction.
ASP has a ridiculously complicated code structure, is difficult to learn, is inefficient on the server. Unfortunately, lots of people use it anyway. I always run into problems when I (try to) use ASP.
PHP, (the best choice) is easy to learn, has a simple code structure, and is very efficient on the server. PHP has never done me wrong. It is open source so improvements are being made by all the DEVELOPERS - not by a few people at Microsoft.
But please stop arguing about PHP versus ASP on a ColdFusion forum.
