As developers, we take the risk of adopting new tools and frameworks because we’re tired of wasting time doing boring, choreful, low-value tasks with code. We want to get to the good stuff - the interesting work where we’re pushing our code into the future to solve problems that matter.

We’re rightfully skeptical of “no-code solutions” that claim to “solve” the problems of code debt and boilerplate productivity, but force us to surrender our code or compromise on design - which is not gonna happen.

There’s a new breed of low-code tools that let us rapidly build out legit apps that scale and work beautifully, but let us reach for code when we need to build beyond what comes in the box.

The pitch: we’re Skuid, this is what we do, and we want to show you that this is real. ln 20 minutes we will:
  • Launch a free-forever developer site
  • Setup read/write data connections to REST and SQL backends
  • Assemble a componentized UI surfacing that data with two-way bindings
  • Interact with app from Chrome console using Skuid’s JS API
  • Integrate with source control and continuous integration using Skuid CLI
  • Extend with code using a custom component from Skuid Labs

Forcing developers to compromise is history; the age of harmonious declarative and extensible development has begun. Come and see.
