Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Re: Will Dr. OpenACS survive? Or why I stopped worrying and learned to love the .LRN consortium?
My experiences with other frameworks made me really appreciate the openacs community , the focus and quality of the contributors.
This particular thing got me started to ask my programmer friends to take a look at openacs and its possibilities. The intial reaction was the "TCLing" feeling and the difficulty they faced firing up an instance without going through a lot of technical hazzles. My exploration is in the direction of making openacs interesting enough for increasing adoption among developers. Most need simple and quick way of demonstrating the development of an application like how Rails provides ( without having to go through the learning curve). I believe this is a very potent approach.
But I guess we are getting there partly with the installer.
