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.
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.
Low-code/no-code vs. traditional code for building Minimal Viable Products (MVPs) :: with Nick Wilger
In this episode of Ventures, my guest Nick Wilger (https://www.linkedin.com/in/nick-wilger/) and I discuss all-things low-code/no-code from the perspective of an aspiring tech entrepreneur. We talk about Nick’s background getting into the space, what founders need to know about tools like Bubble, how to think about “product” setups and roles, working with Figma, and more about Nick’s accelerator (https://effycientaccelerator.com) for training low-code/no-code developers.
The Bubble.io story, No-Code/Low-Code for founders, and changing the web app development paradigm :: with Josh Haas
In this episode of The Ventures Podcast, Josh Haas (co-CEO and founder of Bubble.io -- https://www.linkedin.com/in/joshhaas/) and I discuss the implications of no-code/low-code in general - and Bubble.io in particular - for founders building new web apps this decade and beyond. After raising a recent $100m round, Josh and the Bubble team have a vision to replace traditional custom web development with their no-code/low-code solution, essentially as a new “language” that promises (and has proven) to save orders of magnitude of time and money for founders building web apps.
