“No Code” Is Strange

| Thursday 21st March, 2024

Maybe I’m missing something, but this whole obsession with “no code” apps is strange to me…

Okay… you don’t need to code, but you do need to figure out the basics of logic, program and data flow, conditional execution and so on.

And if you can figure all that out, the code is the easy part.

When I worked building operating systems for DSP boards, a three month project would take the form of: paper and pencil for a week or two, documentation and design for eight weeks, code for a week, test for two weeks.

If your design is right, the code writes itself.

Am I just old?
