A future without programming
Code-free application builders allow business people to take development into their own hands. Where does that leave the coders?

A few years ago, self-proclaimed nondeveloper Kevin Smith worked for a software company that tried to build a project tracking tool using Microsoft .Net. Some 15 developers spent a year with little success. “After burning though a million dollars and still without a product, the company called it quits,” says Smith, now managing partner of NextWave Performance, a consultancy in Denver, Colo.

NextWave took up the idea but ran into similar timetable and budgetary overruns. “I said, ‘I’ll learn to code and do it myself,'” a frustrated Smith recalls. His search eventually led him to Coghead, a Web app for code-free development of Web apps — and Smith built key components of the tracking tool in less than 30 days.
