A low-code pioneer explores the path ahead

Meet Karsten Noack

Article from Issue 277/2023

One team member is a subject matter expert and one is an experienced programmer. Bringing the two together has always been a problem, but low-code offers a new solution: Put it all under one hat.

The terms "low-code" and "no-code" are currently on everyone's lips: These words are bandied as a cure for the shortage of programmers or as a way of turning subject experts into software developers. On the other hand, some experts doubt whether you can really get high-quality software by just clicking around. Linux Magazine spoke to one of the low-code pioneers, Karsten Noack, about the meaning and purpose of low-code technology. Noack has been developing innovative methods and procedures for programming-free software since the early 1990s. In 1998 he launched SCOPELAND Version 1.0, which some consider the world's first low-code platform. Today he is the managing director of Scopeland Technology.

Noack is currently a member of the BITKOM main board and forum spokesman for SIBB, the Berlin-Brandenburg IT industry association. He also chairs the board of the Low-Code Association.
