Brilliant service, but not worth the expense of using seriously..

Again, that’s what makes me so happy my primary development environment is either Rails or Django. I can achieve everything I need with

<% form_tag :action => create/edit :id => randomid %>

and then filling in my needed fields. Rails just comes in behind me and auto-generates the forms with the appropriate code to fire the model.

I find WuFoo to be a hurdle for new developers in the dynamic field. If you’re starting in PHP/Ruby/Python, just go ahead and write the necessary form code. I GUESS it’s ok to use WuFoo if you’re using static HTML, but what server doesn’t support PHP nowadays?
