We are excited to share our plans for 2017. We have ambitious plans to extend the AppSheet platform and to address many of the feature requests that you have asked for. This post lays out our plans in broad strokes.
2017 is poised to be the year of the "no-code" citizen developer. This is not just some cottage industry or niche movement. While we are still at the early stages, "no-code" is a global transition that will transform the landscape of computing. For the very first time in the four decades of popular computing, the huge gap between creators and consumers of software will shrink and in fact potentially disappear. At AppSheet we're at the forefront of this change.
The “lean” approach has become an established practice at startup companies as well as larger software companies. These organizations have learned that “lean development” quickly results in a product that their customers actually want. However, most successful software products today are not just products. They rapidly evolve into platforms on which customers build apps and solutions. Most of these software platforms though haven’t internalized that their customers also need to build apps and solutions using a lean methodology. Customers deserve better!
