The only thing terrifying about things like UltraDev is that they can make you think you know how to program, then leave you in a quagmire when you are trying to figure out why things are not working ;)

Seriously, I would just make sure you actually learn ColdFusion (or whatever you are using UltraDev for) first, or at least along side.  Basically (if I remember right from evaluating it) UltraDev just gives you wizards and such for creating queries and bits of code, attached to "objects" on the web page.  If you know the underlying language, it is fairly easy and sometimes helpful to use.  If not, you are going to be mystified when (inevitably) some automated thing doesn't work as expected.
