2) Customer Notes: How to speed up development: Here is an e-mail UserLand just got from a developer at a large
I think I'm finally starting to really "get" Frontier/Manila, and I
have to say "holy automation, Batman!" One of the things I'm
implementing is a registration system for an internal conference my
department is organizing. There I was figuring out how to create a
new database table for registrants, designing HTML forms for signing
up, and so on, when I realized that all I had to do was create a
whole new site and turn "join" into "register" on that site, and
everything's done! Even the design was done, as everything I've done
for the main site can be reused. So instead of a week's work, it's
all done in minutes.
Our old site was created using Microsoft IIS, Visual InterDev, ASP
and all the rest of it, and it took 3 months to implement, two people
to administer, contributors had to download templates (which
were .asp pages) and try to carefully write in between the right
tags -- and after that (obviously) didn't work, we had to hire an
editor. The estimate for the conference registration system was two
solid months of coding.
