In addition to its primary benefit of time savings, Blue Ink provides a wealth of senior developer expertise, provides code standardization, and reduces the cost of last minute requirements changes.
The default templates provided with Blue Ink bring the
author's numerous years of .Net experience directly to your project. In
the past integrating best practices into applications has required knowledge and
expertise that only a senior developer can bring. The author has spent a
significant amount of time researching and integrating best practices, such as
.Net's declarative security which requires numerous steps to implement
correctly, into Blue Ink. The result is that projects which use Blue Ink will require less expertise, and will deliver a product of superior quality,
with the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) understand the importance of
standardization. Code generated by Blue Ink is necessarily standardized
and this produces several benefits. From a project management perspective the application's standardization
increases a project’s standardization - which in turn increases the
predictability, effectiveness and control of a project.
From a maintenance
perspective an application generated with Blue Ink is easier to update because
code is located in predictable places. From a developer’s perspective code
standardization increases ramp-up time for placing a new developer to a project as code
can be duplicated from existing places and modified rather than "figuring it out
as you go." Furthermore a developer that is familiar with a particular template
can be placed on any project that uses the same or a similar template and have
an intimate knowledge of how the project works.
Changing a data model incurs significant time delays in a project, as code at
all levels must be reviewed, changed, and tested for each database table that
Blue Ink helps significantly reduce the cost of data model changes because
Blue Ink is designed with re-generation of code in mind. The default .Net
templates are designed to combine the power of object oriented design with code
generation to allow:
This process should eliminate the minimum 5% cost of data model changes and
show a 10% savings in the time spent implementing changes.
