"no code" & clouds

Salesforce logo.svgNew Microsoft, Google, Amazon cloud battle over world without code

“There is a 1 million developer shortfall in the U.S. alone, and all these companies are struggling to create content and applications to go truly digitally native"
Salesforce created a (cloud) empire based on "no-software".

That was 20 years ago.
The meaning was: no download & install, just run on web/cloud.

Now again, major cloud provides are attempting to enable
faster creating of "apps" (software), without need for
programming "low level" instructions: code. “Behind the cloud”, shines the sun – Kasper Spiro

Grady Booch, author of Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with Applications:

"Clean code is simple and direct. Clean code reads like well-written prose. Clean code never obscures the designers’ intent but rather is full of crisp abstractions and straightforward lines of control."

“code that you cannot trust is code that you do not understand.
The reverse is true also: code that you don’t understand is code you can’t trust.”

YAGNI Martin Fowler

Yagni originally is an acronym that stands for "You Aren't Gonna Need It".
It is a mantra from ExtremeProgramming that's often used generally in agile software teams.
It's a statement that some capability we presume our software needs in the future
should not be built now because "you aren't gonna need it".
