Hello World in

Just Two Minutes

I saw some software developers, normally charging 200 USD per hour work, bragging about how a new framework enable them to generate a fully working app in a couple of minutes.

The problem with this is, of course, that the paying customers now want more for less.

And then you will hit logic like this:

Sure, we understand that the application you generated in just two minutes isn’t a big application. We want a BIG application. At 200 USD your minute rate should be about 3.40. So, if a big application is ten times as hard to build as a small application, 70 USD should be just about right for a big application, right?Customer
