20 Questions I Asked Myself

Bernadette Jiwa is a marketing / branding / idea-spreading expert, (and a Perth local!), and when you subscribe to her “The Story of Telling” she sends you a PDF with 20 questions to ask yourself before launching your next product or idea.

At WWX 2013, this year’s Haxe conference, I’ll be presenting a talk on developing Web Apps, and using “ufront” to do that.  Ufront is a framework made by mostly by Franco Ponticelli, and initially modelled on the .NET MVC framework.  Ufront is pretty powerful, but it’s lacked documentation and hasn’t had a lot of users.  I’ve used it for my last project, added a bunch of helpers, and think it’s ready for some more attention.  A re-launch, if you will.

So I went through the 20 questions Bernadette gives in her PDF, and tried to apply it to ufront, Haxe and web-apps.

My answers to the “20 questions” for ufront (PDF)

It was pretty eye-opening, and really helped me zero in on why I think this approach is better than rails, django, node/express or other frameworks.  I came up with this tagline:

ufront: the client / server framework for Haxe that lets you write the next big (website/web-app/mobile-app/game/thing)
