Forum OpenACS Development: Re: ad_parameter deprecated in favor of parameter::get?

Posted by Talli Somekh on
Please, someone post a TIP on this. That's the way we should encourage community standards adoption.

In terms of readability, I would like to add another constituent we need to consider - the Sys Admin.

Some of my projects, and I know there are others too, are to build applications that will be administered and maintained by an IT department. These guys are certainly not programmers let alone OACS gurus.

As a result, IMHO balancing programmer coding efficiency with non-programming readability is very attractive for implementation scenarios such as this.

This is not an argument for conventions one way or the other, just another scenario to consider.
