It’s an exciting time to be a citizen developer
November 14, 2022
I wrote Low-Code/No-Code: Citizen Developers and the Surprising Future of Business Applications for several reasons. First, it’s an increasingly important trend. Second, there were only a handful of books out on the subject when I started writing. I felt like I could make a meaningful contribution to the field—one with plenty of research, case studies, analysis, and synthesis. I was looking to write a complementary text to my last two books, Reimagining Collaboration and Project Management in the Hybrid Workplace Paperback.
Finally, that’s just what a writer does. I enjoy writing, researching, editing, and organizing my thoughts in a long-form manner.

As I write in the book, low-code/no-code is certainly one of them. On a recent episode of my podcast, the CEO of an LC/NC startup predicted that the next trillion-dollar company will come from this field.
In the Epilogue, I write about speech-oriented programming and, of course, AI. Ultimately, we’re seeing the democratization of programming. It’s an exciting time to be a citizen developer.

Kidding aside, it’s best to embrace citizen development. The advantages are far too significant to ignore at this point. Also, think about the costs of inaction.
I’m sure that I’ll write more books. I’m currently working on a ghostwriting project.
Beyond writing, the new book is opening up speaking and consulting opportunities. I’m also toying with the idea of creating a course on low-code/no-code tools.
