RE: [newtech-1] Re: Pros and Cons of Ruby on Rails vs Coldfusion on Coldbox vs Microsoft Visual Studio

It's an interesting topic.  Engineering costs and time-to-market, as you've brought up are major concerns that are often seen as opposing  formal design.

But also I believe a lot of the technical 'choices' in front of us when designing systems can be safely eliminated without a formal study.

And it's quite possible to discuss a project from a "mile high" view without reaching for a formal project requirements survey.

Best regards,

Business Web Development

One more. This really sounds more and more like a cultural thing instead of a 'we do it this way because our tech products work better when we do it this way' thing.
