Great article on the rise of #lowcode from Clive Thompson in WIRED showing how Claris #ClarisConnect gave Furnace the power to connect FileMaker & IoT. You don’t need to know any programming to launch a company.
For example, Eric Astor, founder of the vinyl-album-pressing company Furnace, has long run his business on FileMaker Pro (an early no-code tool, really). Lately he’s started outfitting his presses with IoT sensors, then using a new low-code tool called Claris Connect to autoreport their conditions. “We’re capturing data that only big companies used to be able to afford,” Astor tells me. “We’re still a ragtag shop; we don’t have the budget to go and hire consultants.”
