When I reach out and ask the community what they would like me to share, I primarily get asked for Best Practices. For a time I have rejected the idea of sharing those in too much detail as I consider Best Practices to be part of the value proposition of a consultant practice. It's taken years to forge and sharpen those practices and they therefore have value. We continue to challenge those and update as new scenarios, tools, and skills evolve over time. But I continued to think about this and have had a change of opinion.
When used correctly, Calculated Attributes enhance the apps by handling basic calculations at run time; Used poorly and they will damage your app performance.

I appreciate any feedback and hope this helps some Mendix devs!
How easily could a Mendix Developer transfer the skills of Rapid App Development to another tool in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for hpaPaaS? I look at OutSystems to help answer that question.
