The Quick and Dirty Introduction to Low-Code Applications

About the Book

Low-code? What's wrong with full-code?

Perhaps yours is one of the many organizations finding it increasingly difficult to hire qualified developers. Low-code development platforms can help businesses overcome this challenge by enabling them to create custom applications in-house without investing deeply in code.

Low-code platforms allow businesses to quickly and easily create custom applications without having to write heavy code. This is because low-code uses visual interfaces to create complete custom applications. Businesses no longer need to wait for developers to create custom applications for them; they can do it themselves using a low-code platform.

Low-code allows businesses to quickly and easily prototype new ideas and reuse pre-existing components and functions. And who doesn't want to improve efficiency and productivity by automating their workflows?

Learn how it all works and which platform is right for you!

Lloyd Kaufman is a pseudonym used by a long-time veteran of the IT and cloud computing industries.

A pseudonym? What's he trying to hide?

Nothing. It's really about focusing most of the attention on the book's primary author: GPT-3.

GPT-3 is a machine learning model developed by the private tech firm, OpenAI. It is a general-purpose model that can be used for a variety of tasks, such as natural language processing, computer vision, and machine translation.

Go on. You know you can't wait to see what an AI author can do.
