Handtool – Hand Tools Management Application

August 2, 2009

This is an IronSpeed™ generated web application. I like using IronSpeed but the cost of learning how to customize codes after automatic generation seems to negate the point of an automatic code generator.  That’s why I use it only for very simple database applications. But then again, the one that  you thought as “simple” one turns out frequently as a “not that simple” one.

When this project started, the spec was simple. It was a perfect example for a simple database application so I generated it with IronSpeed with minimum customization. During user test period, they wanted to keep expanding the feature list including such as image album, Active Directory authentication, purchase approval workflow, … etc. But isn’t that the whole point for a company to hire an in-house developer?

    Clients hire us to deliver quality solutions in a reasonable time frame. If they were just hiring us ‘to code’, they’d offshore at rock-bottom prices. Tools like Iron Speed help us compete. They save us time, ensure quality code, and provide us with consistent application architecture. You state: ” ..the cost of learning how to customize codes after automatic generation seems to negate the point of an automatic code generator” Customization is expected – that’s a crucial element to a ‘custom’ web application regardless of the methods, or tools you’re using.
