Recently I had a need to compile a broad, and up to date list of ColdFusion MX resources to help get started building database driven web applications, so I'll share that here. I'm not including recent resources such as ARF! and ColdFusion on Wheels because while I think they are fantastic projects they reside on the advanced end of the developer's spectrum.

Resources on Macromedia.com
