I first found out about CodeSmith from reading Mike Gunderloy's excellent Coder To Developer. I introduced it to my colleagues, and one of them showed it to their partner, a web designer.
The web designer, being into design, would rather not have to write SQL for the admin functionality, which goes into every website. CodeSmith to the rescue, saving 90% of the work.
I find this really pleasing, as I was the one who passed on the knowledge. Regular readers will know that I love making people's jobs easier by cutting out the monotonous tasks.
