JHipster Magic

Lets build a product store

mkdir springIoStore && cd springIoStore

yo jhipster (will be just `jhipster` from next version)

JDL Magic

Model entities and download the JDL file

yo jhipster:import-jdl jhipster-jdl.jh

(will be `jhipster import-jdl` from next version)

Lets deploy it

yo jhipster:heroku (will be `jhipster heroku` from next version)

Lets see how much it will cost to build this the traditional way with a rockstar team.

21 days | 4 weeks

Thats without velocity, which would add another 2 weeks

Thats 167 hours more for gameplay!

Thats 83 cups of coffee saved!

Thats 20 more days spent on vacation!

Thats a lot! But wait..
