A few months ago i received the task for developing an website/webapplication for eeStec LC Bucharest. Altought is not ready yet i’m able to say the Farcry was able to help me very much.
First of all Farcry is CMS(Content Management System). This was very usefull b/c i’m able to have the static pages of the site quite quick ready.
We also needed to manage various information types (LCs, members, logins, events, news). Facry made my work very easy. How? All it was needed to be done was to create a cfcomponent(a class, a component). After that farcry created for me database structure, admin interface and some basic display ways for that objects.
You can have a look here. Don’t blame for the design.
Also if you are searching for an alternative to Coldfusion(it has a preety expensive license cost), you can always use Ralio.
