The subsequent episode of the Tech Connects podcast is right here! Each month, we’ll have nice visitors who will share their experience in regards to the present state of the tech careers world, from the most well liked tech abilities to the state of the tech hiring market to what corporations are doing to retain and appeal to high expertise.
Our visitor is Manish Narayanaswami, who’s an affiliate director at Kissflow, which is a builder of no- and low-code platforms that allow enterprise prospects to construct apps and workflows with a minimal of coding. He’s spent years refining use cutting-edge applied sciences to make issues less complicated for finish customers.
I needed to speak to Manish as a result of I’ve been fascinated by no- and low-code instruments for a very long time. For companies, no- and low-code presents the tantalizing chance of permitting workers who don’t have a tech background to rapidly spin up the apps and providers they want. Nevertheless, many technologists are additionally involved about how no- and low-code workflows may probably make it extra complicated to handle a corporation’s tech stack. Let’s pay attention as Manish and I hash out how these applied sciences may have a big affect over the following a number of years:
As Manish explains, no- and low-code platforms may have a large affect on how corporations construct and handle apps and providers. If this expertise isn’t in your radar… effectively, it must be, as a result of corporations massive and small are at the moment creating all types of instruments that can make it simpler for “citizen builders” to spin up the software program they want for his or her jobs.
Right here’s one key takeaway from the episode: Some technologists say they’re fearful that no- and low-code instruments may probably take their jobs. That doesn’t look like one thing that’ll come to go, at the least not for a really very long time. If something, no- and low-code instruments may release technologists’ bandwidth to deal with firm technique and extra complicated challenges.
Finally, the idea of no- and low-code could be very a lot right here to remain: from easy video games to apps for airport safety guards, these instruments will seem in an increasing number of organizations and industries as time goes on. When you’re a technologist, it’ll pay to develop into acquainted with how no- and low-code works, and, if crucial, how one can proactively combine them into your present tech stack.
