March 21, 2006 I attended a NYCFUG meeting feature speaker Peter Bell. He spoke to the advantages of "Application Generation," claiming that around 85% of code for an application could be generated. He even claimed that most applications could be created in a day, no matter how complex, and if they could not, then the programmers were not smart enough to see the abstractions.
He got us all thinking, questioning the importance of our jobs as coders. We eagerly anticipated the launch of www.CFTemplate.com, a site set up to discuss everything about application generation, due to go live that Friday (24th of March); however, over a month later, the site is still not live.
I find it tremendously ironic that the company that talked about the efficiency of code generation has not been able to find the time to launch their site. Does anyone else see the "funny" in this? As wierd as the situation is, I am still looking foward to the launch of this site and learning more about code generation.
