I'm a certified CFML programmer, but I hate FuseBox...
Do you use a framework?
Nope. In my opinion, it kind of defeats the purpose of ColdFusion which is rapid development. Putting ColdFusion into a framework slows you down. If you code for the lowest common denominator (average developers) and comment your code so the next person who works on it can work within it, you should be fine.
I develop in coldfusion with fusebox and I have to say I love it. It just seems to simplify the code so much. I actually believe it speeds up development though.
The problem with frameworks is the level of expertise that the developers have. If you get one guy who is an expert, and a novice, the novice will likely fail to code properly to the framework. Then you come to fix it and it does not follow the standards, and you cannot figure it out. That's when it sucks your energy.
