Chapter 2. Is Fusebox Right for You? > Fusebox and Other Methodologies

Fusebox and Other Methodologies

What makes a well-designed application? This is a complex question, but the answer can be boiled down to a simple concept: organization. In general, applications that are well organized tend to be better applications in terms of meeting design goals, user needs, and maintenance requirements. A good methodology provides organization throughout an application’s development cycle, including everything from the development team’s organization to the way code is organized within a program. As we saw in Chapter 1, “The Arrival of Fusebox,” a variety of methodologies are available for web developers. Many companies even create their own proprietary methodologies and implement them religiously. Methodologies are generally recognized as good. But why are they good?

Sites are wanted faster and cheaper than ever before. The marketplace is putting increasing pressure on developers to build high-quality, robust applications with increasingly fewer resources. This creates a precarious balancing act in which the developer must choose which factors are most important: time, cost, or quality.
