Building an API with cffractal and coldbox

In this session we will cover how to build an API using ColdBox, but with the added benefit of using cffractal, an incredible ColdBox module that helps you iterate over collections of data or return single structural information.

During the session we will build an API from the ground up, install cffractal and see how much simpler it is to manipulate data, alter the responses using customer transformers, and add meta information to you API endpoints.

API development has never been so much fun.
