Eitan Suez sees the productivity behind tools that skip the "rinse/repeat" steps:
How many times have you heard or read of a selling point for a software framework or product or solution being "and you can make changes to the system without having to recompile the code." I must admit I'm sure I used that line more than once before (in my early days programming :-)).
So here's what I find interesting: instead of coming up with all kinds of schemes to get around the problem, why don't we just deal with the root cause? I think it's staring at us in the face: why don't we simply program in an interpreted environment?
We've had that over here for a long time Eitan - come on in, the water's fine. The only thing you have to lose is your lower level of productivity :)
