"WebSmart PHP has been a great asset in our PHP development.
It has served two purposes: (1) It shortcuts the coding
process by providing you with an easliy modifiable working module
once you complete the wizard and (2) it is a
great learning tool because it teaches you lots of PHP techniques
just by looking at the code that is generated. In addition, your
technical support is the best I have ever dealt with in our industry
and I've been at this for over 28 years!"
