The only way to keep development velocity high is by actively steering on software quality.
There’s more pressure than ever on software development teams to ship new features at an even faster rate. And that’s why low coding is an obvious choice for rapid application development, allowing us to create and deploy web and mobile apps at a far quicker pace.
But over time, our applications start to mature and grow in size. Those small and simple units we started with become larger and more complex as new functionalities are introduced.
And with the clock ticking, we begin to compromise on software quality. Our technical debt starts to snowball,
and though we have the best of intentions to go back and refactor, we find ourselves adding new code that’s even messier in an attempt to circumvent the problem.
And so begins the vicious cycle.
It’s easy to see how the benefits we initially sought with low coding have the potential to become a maintenance nightmare.
So how to maintain the low code advantage in the long- term?
