Building Business Apps – Hard Code vs. Metadata

I found this great video that could be used as a metaphor to describe how metadata works when building business applications.

Instead of writing thousands of lines of code, application platforms based upon metadata use a pre-compiled and pre-configured business application ‘engine’ that achieves far more rapid results – in the same way that MS Paint uses pre-compiled functions and logic to allows the artist in this video to paint an excellent mona lisa in under 3 hours (apparently).
