From WebDNA Software Corporation:
WebDNA allows the developer to build a wide range of applications, from basic form-to-email to highly sophisticated database-driven intranet sites. While it is not a framework like Ruby on Rails, WebDNA replaces multiple instructions with a single one, allowing the developer to code as much as 3 times faster than with php or asp. WebDNA's flexibility translates to a very small set of instructions required to build virtually any type of server side application.
Because WebDNA uses the English language and familiar tag structure, basic HTML is the only background needed, making it ideal for the web designer or webmaster to create dynamic sites without relying on outside programming help..
An unlimited number of ultrafast databases can reside within your site hierarchy. There is no need to use MySQL, Microsoft SQL or PostGres at all, but if you want to, you can..
Writing to and searching through a WebDNA database is integrated into the language itself so that variables are immediately available, using one single syntax. You do not need to learn PHP syntax and MySQL syntax. One single WebDNA command does it all..
Whether you need to build a dynamic ecommerce website, web applications, or just password protect a file, WebDNA will allow you to do it much faster and more easily than with any other traditional tools.
