Low-Code vs No-Code: 
A Practitioner’s View

 August 12, 2020  |  1PM ET


At the world’s largest, highly regulated organizations, the need for in-house developed software, customized to the unique needs of each company has surged in recent years. Industry tools have been unable to keep up with the pace and complexity of new application demands. Companies continue to get bogged down by complex and difficult legacy, hard-coded systems, and it’s important to leverage tools that overcome these challenges. Many companies have turned to low-code and no-code application development platforms to help solve these hurdles.

Unqork’s CMO, Alex Schmelkin, joined by his guest, Richard Tarling, Managing Director & Technology Fellow of Core Engineering at Goldman Sachs, will discuss how no-code development platforms have grown in the past few years to support complex builds in a way that standard code or even low-code applications can’t.
