Reduce and reuse your code

Scott McDonald is the author of a successful markbook application. I'll let him tell the story.

"My desktop markbook software is what I call a major application. Previously it required over 100,000 lines of code in another language that is less powerful than LiveCode. When rewritten in LiveCode it only required 30,000 lines for the same functionality."

"When the clients of my markbook wanted a version that could run in a browser, I did it with LiveCode Server. Using the same language as the desktop version in a web/cloud based app was a huge time saver. It would have taken much longer to develop MarkBook Online if I would have had to rewrite it in PHP or some other server side language."
