This is very helpful! Thanks for sharing. We’re planning a few marketing sprints for Lowdefy  and resources like this is really a timesaver. If someone has any other useful sources, please share.
My teacher told us that software development will go extinct really soon because of "no code/ zero code" us that true?

Building apps in minutes, not months
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-17
Check out https://github.com/lowdefy/lowdefy which is open-source.
We created Lowdefy (co-founder here) to built web apps fast and it is really working well for us and our customers. We’ve already rolled out a few enterprise level apps in record time and the platform really scales well as apps evolve and get really complicated. Even developing apps as a team is a breeze since you are working with yaml / json which is easy to code review, copy, paste, find and replace.

Lowdefy | Technical Evangelist / DevRel | Full-time | South Africa | REMOTE | https://lowdefy.com
We are looking for a dynamic individual who can help us establish, build, and accelerate our community growth.
Lowdefy is an open-source, self-hosted, low-code framework to build internal tools, web apps, admin panels, BI dashboards, workflows, and CRUD apps with YAML or JSON.
The ideal candidate will have some experience in developing web apps and working with data, but the primary skills for this position will be communication and content creation.

Welcome to the Lowdefy subreddit 🚀

Github Discussions will remain the primary communication channel for new feature, version and issue discussions. So we might every now and then ask to move a discussion there to improve discoverability.
Ask HN: Anyone built a biz with no-code tools? SaaS, productized service etc.?

We are! We started Lowdefy , co-founder here shameless plug, by building apps for customers. Our model is to build their back-office apps for them with no up-font dev charge, we just agree on a monthly fee. This monthly fee includes any changes and reporting in the future at no additional charge, as long as the scope remains the same. And they own the data in their database of choice.
The model is not perfect and does not work well for every type of process, but we have a few very satisfied customers. Just enough success to slowly grow our business and buy us enough free time to build and improve Lowdefy.
Currently it's working really well, like one gear turns the next. The apps we sell help us test and improve our low-code platform. The more apps we sell the more we invest in our platform and as a result all our apps get better, more feature rich and easier to maintain. Hopefully next, by building an open-source community around Lowdefy we can accelerate this cycle.

Every idea I come up with already exists, and is usually cheaper/better/faster than my idea
reddit.com/r/Entrepreneur | 2021-06-20
In tho context Selling does not only mean transfer of money, like for me with Lowdefy https://github.com/lowdefy/lowdefy it just means people are using it and finding it useful enough to spend time building with it.
Why low-code development tools will not result in 80% of software being created by citizen developers by 2024
