4 things nobody tells you about low-code/no-code

You’ve probably already heard of low-code/no-code. “Low-code/no-code is taking over the world!” said… everybody.  But, if you need a refresher, low-code/no-code is a category of tools and technologies you can use — especially the non-engineer “you”s out there — to build software faster than if you were to write the code for it yourself (or […]

MGM and Caesars hack

Caesars Entertainment Inc. and MGM Resorts International were just on the receiving end of the two most high-profile hacks of 2023 so far. In gambling terms, you could probably say they’re coughing up chips right about now.  It’s being reported that Caesars agreed to pay at least as much as half of a $30M ransom to […]

Your data

Your data has a problem — SaaS.  As Onymos Founder Shiva Nathan puts it, “[SaaS companies] rent you software with their right hand and take your data with their left.” Just ask Zoom (actually, they would probably prefer you don’t).

Rapid prototyping

The CEO of GE Ventures, Sue Siegel said, “Failing fast without losing a customer is better than spending three hundred million dollars on a project that you take all the way out for a year or two.”  The philosophy of “failing fast” (or, more optimistically, “confirming your idea is really good fast — and you’re a total […]

Twitter and tech debt

On November 18th, activist and veteran naval intelligence officer Travis Akers ominously tweeted, “From one of the remaining Twitter employees: ‘It (Twitter) has about a week left before it’s dead.’”  Bad intel, I guess! Even though that didn’t turn out to be true, it captures the tweetosphere’s overall sentiments around Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover — “AhhHHhhhh!“ […]

Android vs Apple

If you search “iOS 16 new features” on Google, you will find that there are over 160,000 results as of September 12, 2022.

Think about any app you’ve ever used. You could probably log in, chat, upload media, or pay for something. At some point, those were all just bullet points on a project manager’s “feature list.” In fact, those have been bullet points on every project manager’s feature list, because they’re software application commodities — every app […]
