Rapid application development, RAD

RAD or Rapid application development is a software development methodology. Distinctive for RAD is that it favors speed and flexibility over a detailed upfront planning. An important reason this method was developed had to do with the evolution of the software development industry. Adjustments needed to be made easily and quickly and the RAD method was more suited for that than previously developed methodologies.

Betty Blocks is a rapid application development platform. By using the visual model builder, applications are designed rapidly and intuitively, 8-10x faster than regular programming.
