CFWheels provides fast application development, a great organization system for your code, and is just plain fun to use.
One of our biggest goals is for you to be able to get up and running with CFWheels quickly. We want for you to be able to learn it as rapidly as it is to write applications with it.
In this Beginner Tutorial: Hello World, we'll be writing a simple application to make sure we have CFWheels installed properly and that everything is working as it should. Along the way, you'll get to know some basics about how applications built on top of CFWheels work.
