Why Triggre is great for developers

At Triggre, we use our own product to automate a variety of internal processes. For example, we have applications for registering vacation leave, HRM activities, and invoicing. Having a tool for automating processes, we would be crazy not to use it and make our lives easier, right? Yet, when our lead architect recently joined us […]

How much code can be used in no-code platforms?

Code in no-code platforms, that must not be possible, right? Because if you would be allowed to use code in a no-code platform, wouldn’t that make it a low-code platform? Well, the truth may surprise you. What exactly is code? This is a harder question to answer than you may think. Because the definition of […]

The difference between low-code and no-code platforms

In my earlier post I talked about the rise of no-code platforms as the next step beyond low-code platforms. We briefly looked at the difference between them, and in this post we’ll take a closer look at some of the distinct differences between low-code platforms on the one hand, and no-code platforms on the other. Target audience […]

The rise of no-code platforms

Recent years have given rise to many low-code platforms. A low-code platform allows coders to gain a higher productivity, because a lot of the tasks they normally perform can be done in a visual editor, from which the platform generates code. This process is about 2 to 8 times faster than regular coding, according to […]

Why standard software is expensive to customize

“This software product already does 90% of what we need.” If only I got a cent every time I have heard this. It is the most ridiculous argument there is for standard software versus custom built software. When companies or teams select software, it is a common mistake to look at the percentage of functionality covered. […]

Pulling back the curtain: a behind-the-scenes look at Triggre

A little while ago, I test drove a Tesla out of curiosity whether it would live up to the hype. In my eyes, it wasn’t all that special; it’s a pleasant and luxurious car, which I’d only expect for the price. My interest was much more piqued by the almost bare undercarriage that was in […]

Behind the scenes

It has been a while since we updated you on our endeavors regarding adding more and more functionality to Triggre. This, of course, does not mean that nothing is happening. Behind the scenes, the work never stops. Success is a process When we released our current version, we had already put in countless man-years of work into […]

1000x Faster than Programming – Part 3: Our Strategy

In my previous two posts, I described the Simplicity / Functionality diagram and explained what the pitfalls of certain strategies are. In this third and final post of this short series, I will explain our vision on getting to Quadrant 4. For Triggre this means that it is usable by business users, who have no […]

1000x Faster than Programming – Part 2: Impossible Strategies

In my previous post I discussed the simplicity / functionality quadrant, which gives a good starting point to discuss strategies. If you haven’t read that post, I suggest you read it first and then return to this post. For reference, this is our quadrant: Moving to another quadrant There are many tools that live in quadrant […]
