approach means less coding, easier maintenance and debugging, and a fast
learning curve. Instead of tedious, repetitive coding, programmers focus
on cost- and time-efficient development.

coupled with the breadth and depth of the framework and its commitment to
integrate with other proven open source projects makes the Expresso framework
the best possible choice. Expresso
