They had a user base of about 200 users (I can already hear some of you groan) and they needed a system to manage job applicants and the companies that want to hire them. And they tossed my meager development team of two an "uncompromisable" deadline of one month in which to conceptualize, develop, and test the system—and have it go live right after that.

Any self-respecting enterprise development team would have laughed off the ridiculous timeline, but for reasons unknown to ourselves (though I think the obscene amount of money offered for the job had something to do with our decision), we decided to have a go at it. We turned to the distant faraway lands of rapid application development (RAD).
