We have a little more than two weeks to go in the school year. It seems so far away.

Low Code Development

I received a request for a fairly simple application today, quick spec only. It is something I have done in the past, easily a day and half of work. The catch was that they wanted it to run on Azure. I took a quick peak the services available and found that I could create a solution from off the shelf Azure features. Yes, I still need to create roles and configure access, but most of what I need done is handled by a standard image and an Azure function that can be written in a single screen.

I suspect that we will not be developing applications from the ground up in the near future. It really does not make sense to build the same thing again, just in a different language. I see a lot of advertisements for coding boot camps now that we are heading into another recession. Looks like that train has left the station, integration is the sweet spot now.
