Although I am a programmer, the application will (hopefully) be developed / maintained by my wife for her medical laboratory, who had never developed software.
* Free, better open-source
* Suitable for non-tech people
* Zero or almost zero programming (i. e. writing code)
* Preferably not PHP-based, because I dislike it and don't want to learn it.
In MS-DOS I used something like [[Magic Software Enterprises]]
Later I used Access for similar goals,
Later, like 10 years ago, I would use Delphi + any free DB
3 years ago I thought web dot-net solution (C# + DB) is best.
What about today? Is there any web-based development tools that can meet my goals?
I tried to check about Drupal, Google Spreadsheets + forms, Ruby on Rails but was unsatisfied.
