The Evolution and Power of No Code and Low Code Tools

In this meeting, the State Changers discuss the evolution of programming languages and the concept of low code to high code. They mention the progression from setting pins on vacuum tubes to writing on pieces of paper to high-level languages like C and Java. They also discuss the emergence of JavaScript and how it became a key part of web browsers. They emphasize the idea of a spectrum of abstraction levels and the trade-offs involved in each level.

The conversation then shifts to React, a popular framework used for creating complex web apps. They explain that React is less reactive compared to other frameworks like jQuery and focuses on state management. They describe how React allows developers to describe their intended view using JSX, a JavaScript-like language, and how React's reconciliation process helps achieve optimal performance. They also mention the ease of editing and getting real-time feedback when using React. The meeting participant presents an example of a React app they created, called Weweb embed. They highlight how React enables the developer to quickly build the app and make changes in real-time. They explain the structure of a React app, including JSX components and the use of props. They demonstrate the development experience of running the app locally and seeing immediate changes based on code modifications. The meeting ends with the participant asking for questions and feedback from the other participants.
