I’m very passionate about the no-code space. Before joining IBM I co-founded Appery.io, a visual low-code platform for building mobile applications.
I truly believe in the promise of no-code:
- Make software development faster and easier
- Democratizing software development
Perhaps a more general version of these two points can be:
- Make building solutions with (no-code) software faster and easier
- Make it possible for everybody to build solutions
I encourage you to read the first link below: What is no-code? which covers these two points in more detail.
A lot of the content I published this year is using Parabola. Parabola is a no-code visual platform where you build a flow or automation by connecting small step together (as shown in the image above). It reminds of a Serverless where you build an application connecting small functions together. And with Parabola you do it in a similar fashion but in a visual way. In fact, many examples below take an application built with code and then rebuild the app with no-code using Parabola.
