So I built a web application

Some advantages of the web application:

  • Users are guided as they fill in the forms

  • Only data of the correct type is accepted

  • If required fields are left out,

the information is not added, and the user is notified

  • Can track history of documents and writers’ projects

  • It can run on any platform

When you build your own web application, it is custom fit to your needs, instead of trying to fit your needs to an existing program.

It is easier to design a program that fits you, one customer, than it is to design a program to fit a whole bunch of unknown customers.

My ulterior motives:

  • Review tracking: on whose desk is that document buried?

  • Keep track of who is working on what

  • Encourage edits and checks of documents

  • I needed to gather time data to use later for estimating the length for time documents require

and their cost

  • I wanted to learn new skills

Rollout:

  • The web application is modular, so I can add useful chunks as I finish them

  • First edition: deployed from my website

  • Then moved to my desktop

  • Now it’s on a network server
