Visual Basic 4.0 starts up in three seconds on a ten year old computer. I have much more advanced IDEs on my machine nowadays, but if I just want to code up something for the fun and expect quick results, I'll still fire up VB4 from 1995.
Wow, really? Maybe you should try using notepad and vbc.exe to compile. Super quick!
Also Java and Visual Studio tend to be used by less skilled developers and students (disclosure: i'm a student). Poor responsiveness of programs written in Java or using VS is more a factor of who is writing it than anything to do with the language / VM / IDE.
Java and Visual Studio less skilled developers? Nope. No it doesn't.
But thank you for your disclosure, that explains a lot.
Not only does SQL work, it is the best at what it does.
The only people who hate on SQL are the people who don't understand databases. Generally, these are the same people who like labels, tag clouds and ruby on rails. They produce a lot of high level hand waving with regards to the actual code and endless amounts of "herp derp I dunno" when asked why their shit performs slower than the 10 year old system it's supposed to replace. These are bad people.
Here here. Well said. If you think you can do everything without structured data you've never heard of accurate reporting before, which is what businesses need to be competitive and not waste money and all that fancy schmancy business stuff.
The whole NoSQL movement is as bad as the XML movement. I'm sure it's a great idea in some cases, but otherwise it's a solution looking for a problem.
Timothy, you're asking the wrong question. "Is anyone using this system in production?" bzzzz, wrong. The correct question is "What systems are people _using_ in production?"
Too much is not enough.
