One topic that has always fascinated me is the development lifecycle. Everything that we use in our daily lives has some form of code running behind the scenes. It is the sad truth that as technology has progressed into this diabolical machine that requires reams of code and complex hardware to function, we find ourselves spending more and more time in the development world.
But what if things were easier, simpler, and more uninformed. I came across a company based in England, Nottinghamshire who take this into consideration and even made a business out of it.
App Institute is a company who created a platform solely aimed at those seeking a solid infrastructure to deploy their mobile app to both Apple and Android. But that isn’t all. Taking it that one step further they stripped down the development lifecycle that can take weeks, if not months, and built a system that allows you to do it in a matter of minutes.
But wait, there is more. They took all of that development time required to build an app and crammed it into a drag and drop builder. So you can build apps in a web portal. I mean, if that isn’t awesome I don’t know what is.
This simplification of the development process is seen in all walks of the tech industry. Look at the likes of Wix, offering a free drag and drop website builder.
Anyway, I could talk all day about how awesome it is to see such a complicated and insane process streamlined into an elegant process. Check out their app builder today.
