What is GenHelm?
GenHelm is a Model Driven Engineering Platform that facilitates rapid development of robust, scalable web applications. You can think of it as a comprehensive PHP Web Framework that is augmented by an advanced set of generators used to create and modify content pages, PHP Classes, HTML Forms and other components.
In modern extensible websites a significant amount of code is used to implement "plumbing". This includes infrastructure to support functionality around security, authentication, request mapping, http response handling, page rendering, etc. Building a comprehensive infrastructure for large commercial web projects can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and take years to perfect. With GenHelm, companies can avoid these costs and focus their effort on building the business components that add value while leveraging a common foundation across their organization.
Unlike traditional frameworks, that take years to master, GenHelm has a shallow learning curve since all of the components you build are generated by sophisticated models. This allows average developers to build comprehensive web applications in a fraction of the time taken when using code heavy frameworks.
