Rapid Development Using Online IDEs

Posted by Will Shah on Sep 1, 2016 10:00:00 AM

One of the most important processes in software development is the Rapid Application Development (RAD) model. The RAD model promotes adaptability – it emphasizes that requirements should be able to change as more knowledge is gained during the project lifecycle. Not only does it offer a viable alternative to the conventional waterfall model, but it has also spawned the development of the Agile methodology, which you can learn more about here.

A core concept of the RAD model is that programmers should quickly develop prototypes while communicating with users and teammates. However, historically, this has been hard to do – when starting a project, you often need to decide which languages, libraries, APIs, and editors to use before you can begin.

But there are of course downsides to using packages, and a big one is that no matter how friendly the creator is, and how much customizing he offers, there's always that one requirement you need to implement that just isn't available.  This post is about adding action buttons above the grid itself, to accompany the "Columns" and "Refresh" buttons provided.
