Python dictionary objects do not allow accessing of values with dot notation

Documenting this because it's the kind of frustrating mistake to solve that could drive someone away from Python entirely, yet it'll be a mistake i'll probably never make again and would be able to solve in seconds if i do.

A dictionary, or 'dict', must be accessed with bracket notation. Unlike JavaScript, dot notation is not an option for dicts.

Facebook Use Predicts Declines in Subjective Well-Being in Young Adults

"We text-messaged people five times per day for two-weeks to examine how Facebook use influences the two components of subjective well-being: how people feel moment-to-moment and how satisfied they are with their lives. Our results indicate that Facebook use predicts negative shifts on both of these variables over time. The more people used Facebook at one time point, the worse they felt the next time we text-messaged them; the more they used Facebook over two-weeks, the more their life satisfaction levels declined over time."

Naming convention for follows / is followed by relationship?

Functional tests with the CFWheels testing framework

We're doing some functions tests for cfwheels even though the main docs - - have only controller, model, view. Trying to test our showUserText() function alone failed because it was telling me it doesn't know anything about other functions it calls that are in fact core to CFWheels (stripTags, in this case).

CFWheels DBMigrate plugin

CFWheels taking action on a particular error

If you have more than one error on a property (aka column in a database table, as defined in your model) you need to create custom errors so you can name them

For instance, in your User.cfc model in your custom error method you have:
