In this meeting, the State Changers discussed various development tools and platforms, including "WeWeb", "React", and "Xano". They engaged in a detailed discussion on their features, functionality, and specific use-cases.
Key insights included:
- The State Changers highlighted the difference between front-end and back-end development, noting the different data security and privacy responsibilities each has. The primary issue with "WeWeb" and "Wizd" was their unclear terms of service and privacy policies, especially with how they handle sensitive data in highly regulated industries such as fintech and sports betting.
- The topic of compliance revolved around the storage and handling of data. Platforms like "Bubble" and "Xano" store user data, therefore, they must comply with data protection regulations. However, platforms like "WeWeb" and "Webflow" do not store user data, reducing their range of compliance requirements.
- The State Changers clarified the concept of a single-page application, detailing its benefits, especially on speed and performance. They noted that platforms like "WeWeb" take this approach.
- They also discussed how viewing their development work via dev tools could provide a more transparent understanding of how their frameworks operate.
In conclusion, the State Changers' discussion revolved around understanding web development technologies, their capabilities, their limitations, and their impact on compliance, particularly regarding data privacy and security.
