Iteration 1 : "No Framework" Framework
As I start my first phase of Skin Spider, the iterative demo for ColdFusion application development, I am going to be using what I think Hal Helms refers to as the "No Framework" framework. I will be hacking together parts of strategies that I have used before with no real amount of super planning. Hopefully, this should lead to issues, poor code reuse, and horrible maintainability. The idea here is that in the next phase, I can refactor, explore what problems arose in the first phase and explain how a framework would fix these issues.
So basically, this phase of the Skin Spider is going to be crap. It's basically going to be a proof of concept for the idea of crawling sites and capturing videos and storing information in an XML database. Please do NOT take this a best practices approach. I want to almost go "worst practices" approach first so that I can then really explore the way things should be cleaned up.
