Most frameworks are created with a core philosophy in mind. A core philosophy provides a central theme for all major product decisions. The core philisophy behind DNN was extensibility, and as a result almost every core feature was developed in a manner which could be enhanced, extended or overridden. The core philosophy for Oqtane also includes extensibility but places a much greater emphasis on performance, which is highlighted by the Oqtane brand name whose root word octane is a standard measure of the performance of engine fuel. Performance is a very general attribute and for a framework like Oqtane it needs to encompass a wide variety of characteristics such as the speed of installation, familiarization, development, deployment, and interaction with the product.
