A framework for building powerful business software that scales

As an engineering leader, you understand the power of well-architected applications: they remove obstacles so your team can focus on solving problems and getting results. But how can you ensure every application—from simple CRUD apps to complex custom ops software—is scalable, effective, and built to consistently high standards? An application development framework (think: a codified approach) can help your team reliably build apps that deliver ideal end results for the user or customer.

This guide outlines what an effective application development framework looks like from a practical perspective—and presents concrete examples (plus some Retool-specific details) to make it tangible and easy to grok. This enterprise-class framework is intended to help you form a strong foundation for developing and deploying web apps, mobile apps, and workflows that are welldesigned, secure, reliable, scalable, and cost effective.
