History of low code - how citizen development came to be.

  1. 1. HISTORY OF LOW CODE
  2. 2. Many of you have been hearing the word Low-code, let’s explain what it is.
  3. 3. Low code is a type of technology used to build apps with minimal coding. What really is low code?
  4. 4. A 'low-code' application development platform essentially consists of two parts. •Graphical User Interface (GUI) •Programming Language </> HTML HTML Java PHP CSS3 </>
  5. 5. Graphic User Interface employs a drag and drop feature to create a personalized user interface Programming language uses script to communicate with the computer to execute logical operations. Computers understand Binary digits (0 and 1), the programming language is used as a method to translate concepts into binary. GUI and Programming Language : Interaction 0 100 10 0 110 0 1
  6. 6. • Earlier languages had limited capability. Eg; In PASCAL to display "HELLO" on screen one had to code WriteIn “Hello" • Technology and Hardware were limited, so coding languages were more esoteric and less versatile. • In time low-code platforms were developed to make it easier to develop computational tools. Evolution PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE
  7. 7. • GUI evolved like programming languages • Previously DOS was the primary UI for most systems. • It developed to GUI where one could click and select • Eventually Apple invented a GUI, with the first Windows 3.1 suite following after. These allowed users to interact in a more intuitive, visual way. • The advent of messiah processors led to better displays as well. EVOLUTION: Graphical User Interface
  8. 8. In 2014, Gartner coined the term 'low-code' after rapid development platforms began to evolve. These platforms combined the simplicity of graphical interfaces and the power of programming languages, bringing application development to the common man. RISE OF LOW CODE : Citizen Developers
  9. 9. Zoho Creator is one such platform with a great UI We have been functional for over 10 years and is widely used for Business Process Automation @zohodevs www.zoho.com/creator
  10. 10. Brian: Hey Creator! How is it going? Zoho Creator: Hey Brian! I’m working quite efficiently! Thanks. Brian: I need to add an extra form to my Sales app to collect feedback. Could you just use the template and get it done. Zoho Creator: Adding form… Zoho Creator: Form ‘Feedback’ has been added to the Sales Management app under new Section ‘Feedback’. Who knows? Endless Possibilities, isn’t it?
