We discuss the design and implementation of a software development
platform that allows unsophisticated programmers to include advanced
features to their applications with no or very little extra
information and effort. These features include the splitting of the
application in distinct processes that may be distributed over a
network, a powerful configuration and scripting language, and several
tools including an input system to easily construct reasonable
interfaces. We attempt to describe both the techniques used to achieve
transparency for the programmer and what exactly a user must do to
build new ATLAS modules.
