Funtime Friday: The Low-Code Revolution will not be Televised

#funtimefriday

There’s a revolution going on out there. No, it’s not a war fought on a conventional battlefield; it is a digital revolution driven by the explosion of mobile web and the Internet of Things.

In this hyperconnected world, business and IT are going to have to work together much faster than ever to compete and win. The good news is that Low-code approaches and technologies can lay the groundwork for doing this, by accelerating innovation, and making it easier for organizations to keep pace with the rising expectations of digital consumers.

There’s a corollary to this in the world of music. In 1970, the late jazz poet Gil Scott-Heron sparked a musical revolution with “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” a widely sampled anthem that laid the lyrical groundwork for future hip-hop emcees. First released as a spoken word piece, the poem was later reworked as a rhythmic jazz tune.

In this digital remix, I’ve broadened the context and updated the prose with a low-code spin. Check it out.

Mike check 1,2..1,2…testing…testing…

The low-code revolution will not be televised.

You will not be able to stay in your comfort zone, my friend. You will not be able to tune in, zone out, or skip out for snacks during commercials…

Because the low-code revolution will not be televised.


The revolution will not be brought to you by old school COBOL or FORTRAN, In a three part mini series, without commercial interruptions. It will not be streamed by Netflix, Crackle or Amazon Prime.
Low-code skeptics will not be on Snapchat, leading a charge to upgrade your legacy platform.

The low-code revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not star Sofia Vergara, Ray Romano, Or Mordecai and Rigby. It will not help you find Dora, catch Pokemon, or reveal the secret life of a terrier named Max.

The low-code revolution will not be televised.

You will not be able to binge watch low code apps on Hulu. There will be no YouTube videos of critics embracing your digital transformation plan.

Conventional software coding will no longer be relevant. And your inner nerd will not care If skeptics finally get down with low code platforms, because QuickApps will help you take your organization to a brighter day.

The low-code revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not make the 11 o’clock news. The theme song will not be written by Bruno Mars. It will not be sung by Adele, Sam Smith, Beyonce, or Adam Levine.

The low-code revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be right back after a word from rebel cows, urging you to “Eat Mor Chikin.” The revolution will not go better with Coke.

The revolution will put you in the driver’s seat, for digital transformation.

The low-code revolution will be live.
