I gave this talk at cfObjective() 2013 using an application built with no MVC framework. In "Better UI Means Better UX", I rebuilt the Kung Foo Gallery application using the ColdBox MVC framework. I was able to get a bit more in depth during this presentation (and all of my examples worked).
While setting up my Macbook Pro for web development, I was flummoxed by the issues reported by many people trying to setup ColdFusion 10 on OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion, as well as Window 8. Adobe even has a pre-release program to test new installers for both. I can understand having problems with Windows 8, but installing on OSX 10.8 couldn't have been easier.
