I think no-code is still a nascent field. Those who are in no-code take for granted that the vast majority of people don’t know it’s a thing at all. If you look at no-code in the Gartner hype cycle, I think we’re somewhere in the middle of the upswing, possibly approaching the peak in interest. My opinion is that disillusionment will happen before it becomes normalized. People will see faults in no-code, but ultimately it will become a mainstay in how we build and use technology, much the way WYSIWYG website editors did in the early and mid 2000s.
This one is one of my favorite things to think about because we have a quadfecta of technology that is all coalescing into one area - no-code, web3, XR, and AI. They are all being developed in tandem and I think that will continue to be the case. For instance, at the same time AI is becoming more innovative and widespread, we also have no-code companies such a Metaranx and RunwayML that are building no-code ways to train models and accomplish real life goals. Another example is that you can actually use Adalo (a no-code tool) to make apps that interface with the blockchain (web3). Granted, it’s in limited ways at the moment, but the prospect is still promising for the future.
My favorite part of working at Adalo is the people for sure! Everyone works so hard to thoughtfully improve Adalo without breaking too many things in the process. I love our standups and Donut meetings we have!
