Low-Code/No-Code vs. ChatGPT-assisted Ruby on Rails development for new startups

In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.reddit.com/user/wclittle) discuss both a Reddit conversation I posted recently about Low-Code/No-Code vs. ChatGPT-assisted code-from-scratch, and an overview of the curriculum we’re planning to walk through in our Product and Code cohort (learn more and apply here: https://forms.gle/dtVA1bQ9xATRrPW29). I talk about Rails vs. Bubble, learning with LLMs, and a wide range of web developer topics - from installing necessary software on your computer to caching strategies - that anyone needs to know in order to become a proficient engineer for the modern web.

Learn Product and Code: DNS, WebSockets, and Profile Picture AI

In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.reddit.com/user/wclittle) continue from last week’s screencast to discuss WebSockets, DNS, and Profile Picture AI. I talk about how you can get involved with the Q1 product and code cohort I’m leading (apply here: https://forms.gle/dtVA1bQ9xATRrPW29), how rare it is to actually be good at “product”, Prota Ventures slack group for investors and entrepreneurs, a deeper dive into how web requests are packed on the server side with Ruby on Rails, and the future of Rails vs. Low-Code/No-Code.

How will ChatGPT disrupt the low-code/no-code movement?

The promise of low-code/no-code is to save a significant amount of time and money when building apps. However, in the "real world" there are no lack of stories of people who tried to execute a MVP build on a no-code/low-code platform and ended up rebuilding it in a modern web development framework. This ended up costing them even more time/money than if they built it from scratch to start.
