The Dallas/Ft. Worth ColdFusion User Group has been working through the book Head First Design Patterns, taking the Java-centric code examples in the chapters and implementing them in ColdFusion to see how they may apply to us as ColdFusion developers.

Justin Treher asks: "Yo, Adrian. I see that you are using autonumber for your tables. Whenever you run the CREATE method in the DAO you are just returning true. How does the application get the ID?"
I've had a lot of feedback on both the OOP and Mach-II series via e-mail, through comments and in person. Many people have said they've been trying to learn these concepts that "all the blogs talk about", that there aren't many resources out there and that my series has been easy to understand. Hopefully, and with some help, I can write a book that's easy to understand as well.
