[REBOL] Re: Windows GUI apps: Rebol/SDK vs. Visual C++ 2003

From: atruter:labyrinth:au at: 25-Jan-2003 13:06

Use whatever tools you enjoy using. Coding should be an enjoyable experience not a chore! Me, I just prefer the declarative approach to GUI construction. Oh, and the small fact that I am 2-6 times more productive with it than my previous languages of choice, Delphi (for Windows GUI stuff) and PERL (for UNIX- based work). The fact that REBOL-based backup, accounts, database, freight systems are an integral part of my business is testament to its ability to do the job and do it quickly. I try to remember that: 1) Time and cost are paramount. The customer wants the cheapest product that will do the job, and they want it now. 2) Language / Cross-platform are developer issues. The customer wants a product that runs on their platform, if it meets 1) above they don't care what tools you used to create it! 3) Happy coders are good coders. Regards, Ashley
