We've covered most of the fundamental elements of ColdFusion development in this chapter. I've found over the past several years of developing ColdFusion applications and in teaching ColdFusion courses that one of the most common mistakes that developers make is in their tag syntax. The basics that we've covered in this chapter are the key to becoming a great ColdFusion developer.
As we move into the next chapter, think about the sample code that we did for the IIf() function. It included a tag that we have yet to discuss: the CFINCLUDE tag. Chapter 5, "Reusing Code," shows us how to make the most of your code by programming for code reuse.
