Respectfully, I’ve not asked you to use or do anything.
I am very familiar with your opinions on Xojo (as they apply to proprietary platforms) and am well aware of your development stack preferences. I agree with much of what you have to say.
Generally, speaking you and I use many of the same toolsets. No argument.
There are, however, many valid reasons for utilising low-code, no-code environments.
Most low-code environments have strong application templates that allow teams of non-developers an opportunity to tailor business processes without development support.
Low-code environments provide the ability to scale quickly and securely without dedicated development or IT operations support. Sometimes, you need to act, before you have time to develop.
They are also very efficient for prototyping apps with users, or to create prototypes for raising venture capital for startups (which is my niche).
Sometimes we use low-code apps, as a stepping stone to regular development. Prototyping, refining and maturing thought processes before developing them for the longer term on open platforms.
Introducing a user-driven and assumption tested concept to a development team saves time and money.
I use many languages and tools including those you have mentioned, and where appropriate some proprietary, code, low-code and no-code environments.
Despite your assertion that
people will not try something like this
Low-code, no-code platforms have always been popular (eg: FileMaker), however are experiencing near exponential growth right now.
I have a the heart of a developer but even I can see the writing on the wall for a time when “most” application development projects will require less-and-less, tending-to-zero coding.
I’ll happily review “Bubble” for myself. Thank you.
Kind regards, Andrew
