Hi, I’m pretty sold on buying one or more Telerik packages however would
like feedback about
the questions below.
Long story short, years ago I learned database
architecture and admin (including Stored Procs). More recently I’ve tutorialed
myself to death learning ASP.Net MVC 3 only to discover that imho it seems
primarily aimed at either insignificant apps or larger dev teams (eg separate
JQuery and dbase staff responsiblities).
Specifically it’s well and good to craft an MVC structured “web server
middle tier” but I frankly don’t want to also have to become proficient
compared to the readily available features and aesthetics of Telerik components).
Not that I yet know very much about webform database connectivity but it
seems straightforward enough to facilitate RAD progression -- and let’s be
honest, other than maybe a Fortune 500 firm the idea of a straight unbroken
line from mock up .jpg/.ppts to a database schema to Entity classes to an App
repository to a compartmentalized GUI (and/or backwards) is unrealistic to the
point of being a complete insult.
That said, am I (realizing there are many opinions) mistaken?
I know Telerik has MVC components but I still say the hell with an ORM to
manipulate at the web server instead of an Entity class I’ll write a Stored Proc
to return to the GUI exactly what is required (and fwiw I can’t see how managing
stored procs is any less efficient than constantly having to regenerate the EF
everytime I add a field).
So like I said above, please email me thoughts/comments/feedback particularly any "gurus" or firms who might be available for paid consulting services related to first an
architecture review and later to periodic assistance/customizations.
Thanks in advance.
