Everybody’s coding now. Kids are coding. Your dog is coding. If you’re not learning to code—like, right now—you are setting yourself up for a life of mediocrity. Or are you? Friends, every trend has its backlash, and the “learn to code” backlash is upon us. This week at the Spring DEMO event, a new product called iGenApps was launched. It’s an iPhone app that lets people make iPhone apps without writing any code.
These kinds of things can work. Sites like Flavors and About.me let you build homepages without any HTML. Wordpress and Blogger do the same for blogs. Why not one for apps? iGenApps will host your creation on their servers and allow you to updated it for $100 a year. For a little extra you can create standalone apps that can be submitted to the app store. But wait, didn’t somebody have to write the code to create iGenApp? Let’s not declare the code craze over just yet.
Are you learning how to code? How are you/where are you learning? Tell us below or @WIREDInsider.
