I loathe the current web stack with it's myriad of javascript frameworks and have refused to have anything to do with it for LOB work.

Amen! Currently in a disagreement with a (mostly non-coding) business partner over the direction of one of our core LOB desktop apps. I want it to stay desktop, but she is convinced that it should 'go to the cloud' as a web application. Dead | X|

Her reasons are 'Everyone else is doing it' and 'our customers expect it'.

My arguments against a cloud-based web app are:

0: it currently costs us $0 for a customer to download, install, setup, and use the product.

1: the majority of our customers are not interested in a cloud based solution due to local security policies.

2: the app in question relies heavily on imports from local sources. (direct connections to other vendor's databases, spreadsheets, textfiles, etc.) I've already seen what happens when a customer decides to move one or more of their key LOB apps to the cloud...Let's just call it 'data interruptus'...systems that used to share/feed/pull data from one another aren't talking anymore.

3: responsibility for the data(base). Simple...I don't want it. I'm quite happy with letting the customer's IT department do what they are being paid to do.

4: as for re-writing the desktop app to a web app, I only have two words. session timeout Dead | X|

So far, she is unconvinced. Sigh | :sigh:
