In recent years there’s been an explosion in the number of so-called low-code / no-code products becoming available to developers.
If the predictions are anything to go by, these alternative coding platforms have a promising future. By 2024, it’s claimed that 64% of apps will be developed via low-code, and by 2027 the whole market is expected to be worth a staggering $65 billion.
These platforms are certainly having an influence when it comes to the digital development process – particularly given the way they can help democratise the development process, lower its costs and speed up the creative process.
So far, so good… right?
But is no-code / low-code really the answer to developing the agile tech needed for the future? Can templated blocks of code really provide companies with the scalability and freedom they need for growth in the short and longer term – particularly given the degree of ‘lock-in’ some platforms dictate?
In this debate, chaired by xDesign, we’ll be giving members of the Leeds tech community an opportunity to share their views as to the future and place of this hotly contested technology.
