Getting started

I am planning on learning CF through a training.

I work on NT4 workstation and I'd like to be able to manage several of my sites that are hosted on Linux by an ISP.

My Q is: what will it take to get started?

Do I need to install a server on my workstation (e.g. Apache), then  CF server, then CF studio?

About my sites, do I have to get a dedicated server and install CFserver? or can I just get a web space on any server running CF server and manage my sites from this server?.

What does it take really?

Thanks

If you are looking to manage several sites it is easier to get a dedicated server as you will have more control over it... a lot of ISPs are offering this option cheaply these days.

To start (before you have an ISP) install IIS 4.0 (NT OPTION PACK) and
then install CF Server and then CF Studio.  You should be able to up and running from there on.

CF has a really low learning curve if you take the Fasttrack training you will have no problem getting up and running though I highly recommend the Advanced Training so you can learn how to do modular/component(custom tags) development in CF.
