Myths about no-code software development

I’ve been an advocate for no-code software development for more than a decade, I’ve researched the subject, and created several implementations of it – My latest addition being Magic. Hence, I believe I am qualified to voice my opinion about the subject, and hopefully debunk a couple of myths about it in the process. First […]

What others are saying about Magic

Almost all comments I have been given about Magic, and developers testing it out, have been exclusively positive. Check them out here for yourself. These comments are from a couple of recent threads at Reddit. There are others too, but I don’t want to add too many. If you want your own testimonial up here, […]

Magic is now secured for 1.000.000 years

I just read about the requirements for having your GitHub repository participate in the Arctic Doomsday vault, which is created in Svalbard to last for a million years (or something) – And golly gosh, it seems also future Homo Sapiens, if still around 1.000.000 years from now, can benefit from Magic. Of course, Magic is […]

Cyprus is still in the EU

Today Britain gets their independence. 60+ years later than Cyprus, but OK, let’s leave the gory details out of this, shall we? Hence, I’d like to congratulate Britain on this accomplishment, and at the same time inform business leaders, CEOs, and investors in Little Britain that Cyprus is still in the EU … … just […]

Emotional debt

Debt is normally a bad word, but when it comes to emotions, things are different. If I tell others that you’re brilliant, you will be emotionally indebted towards me, which makes sure you will try to convince others about that I am brilliant, and very often right in my assessments of other people – Simply […]

Database administration tools

Sometimes you invent things, and you’re not entirely sure what it is in the beginning. Maybe you feel it’s really brilliant, but you cannot clearly see all of its use cases initially. And the more brilliant and innovative whatever you invent is, the more this tends to happen. Magic is like that to me. One […]

Einstein

According to Blake, DZone’s community manager, DZone will publish one of my most exciting articles ever later today. The reasons why I am excited about it, is because it’s the first time I get an article published about the frontend scaffolding machinery in Magic. Originally though, I wrote the article slightly different, trying to emphasize […]

Obligations

When you have as much coding experience as I do, you kind of have a moral obligation to teach – It simply comes with experience, and is something probably most “super senior software developers” can resonate with. Having coded since computers had two digits kilobytes of RAM, obviously implies decades of experience – And since […]

Eliminating process boundaries

I know a Buddhist joke, it goes like this: “The Dalai Lama walks into a pizza restaurant. The waitress asks him what he wants, His Holiness answers ‘One with everything’”. When Gautama Siddhartha became the Buddha, his first realization was that he had always been “one with everything.” This was according to his own accounts, […]

Pleasing 1 customer

The nature of software is that it can be copied. Implying once you’ve created the initial version of your software, and somebody is willing to pay you to gain access it, you arguably have a license to print money. This results in that as you start marketing your software product, it becomes imperative to please […]
