Innovation in Software Development: AI and The Rise of Low Code and Super Apps

John Sviokla

In a digitally transforming business landscape, time-consuming, resource-intensive hand coding is no longer responsive. 

With the increasing demand for business applications and the proliferating worldwide shortage of software developers, the need for low-code and no-code platforms is on the rise.

Low-code/no-code is a visual, low-barrier approach to software development. Users can design, build, and launch enterprise-level applications with little to no technical coding knowledge. As a result, businesses are turning to low-code no-code platforms to make fast and strategic software solutions in the face of today's ever-evolving technology demands. 

In this webinar, host John Sviokla and Dan Bricklin, Chief Technology Officer of Alpha Software Corporation and President of Software Garden Inc., sat down to discuss groundbreaking innovations happening in the software development space. Specifically, they will unpack:

  • The next five years of low-code/no-code development platforms
  • The rise of super apps
  • How AI is impacting the future of software development
