Does this FRAME WORK?

It’s not like we haven’t heard it before but now this seems to be the general consensus: frameworks are the next phase in the evolution of programming languages. Don’t get me wrong, programming languages’ time is not up and one cannot and should not imagine a world without them. However, the thought that frameworks could make our lives easier is not far-fetched.

Are you curious yet? I invite you to open the magazine and find out why you should give credit to frameworks for making your life easier.
