Why Clarion?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I write custom software and by custom software I mean that I work with companies to create software tailored to the way they do business instead of the reverse. The reverse? Yeah, adjusting the way you do business because the software you use requires you to do things a certain way. And when I write in the Clarion language.

Ok but why Clarion?

In the past I've done work for various Fortune 500 companies. Hell, I've done work, at one time, for the Fortune 1. But these days I focus on small businesses and if you're a small business owner you know you can't afford to pay what the big guys lay out for software.
So Clarion is my language of choice because it is easy to create quick, good-looking applications that meet a client's needs. Clarion is what is known as a RAD language; RAD meaning Rapid Application Development and isn't that what you want? I think so.

Clarion makes my job easy or at least easier (sometimes it's just not going to be easy<g>).

So I use Clarion but how does that help you?

The usual process for creating software is: figure out what you want; determine how to do it; figure out how long it will take; and then do it. Of course there is one other critical factor-- how much will it cost? There is a direct relationship between how much it costs and how long it takes. If it costs more it probably is because it took longer to do. So, since you, the small businessman or woman, care about cost you should also care about how quickly I can produce a solution.

Then there is another aspect which also explains why I use Clarion. Over time you will want changes and a program written in Clarion is easy to modify. So that's why I use Clarion.

Can I do something for you?
