Kusala Web Developments has announced the launch of Arcos, a rapid web development architecture for the PHP community. Developers are invited to a demonstration day on 27 February in Sheffield, England.
Operating in a Linux environment, Arcos works by using an XML specification language which defines what a website should do, not how to do it. Arcos takes the XML specification and uses it to plug together code modules from its own extensive library. PHP scripts are produced automatically for the entire website without the developer writing a single line of code. Arcos uses a large library of PHP components that take care of repetitive and code intensive tasks that are encountered when programming any large website. Tasks such as form validation, interfacing with the database, handling file uploads and multi-level password based security systems which require extensive attention to detail are each handled by a set of small and reliable components. This extensive re-use of already written code makes development fast and uncomplicated. Each of the components used by Arcos has been thoroughly tested and proven to be reliable. Improvements that are made to a component are automatically reflected in the sites that use that component. Application and Graphical templates are used extensively to ensure site-wide consistency and ease of maintenance. The templates also enable any site to be customised or extended with ease. If you would like to see some examples of what can be done using Arcos then take a look at these sites: NursingNetUK: http://www.nursingnetuk.com ICTSuccess: http:/www.ictsuccess.co.uk On the demonstration day you will be able to see our developers using Arcos to build a new website from scratch in under an hour complete with: * a multi-level security system * full search facilities for all data tables * full access for selected users to delete, add and modify all records * automatically generated graphical templates for the whole site * fully editable content for the whole site We will be available to answer any questions you have on the day. Feel free to bring along examples of problems and we can show you how Arcos can be used to solve them. Kusala Web Developments are dedicated to developer support and we will be running regular user group meetings for all users of Arcos, where you can help us develop the software to meet your needs.
