How to Gain 10x Productivity By Utilizing These 2 Time-Saving Tools


Combining low code and Javascript can provide a much-needed time saver for developers.

Research shows developers focus less on learning and mastery and more on productivity five years into their careers. And low-code tools can help them accomplish that.

According to IDC, low-code tools can increase productivity by 123%. Furthermore, companies that utilize low-code platforms can speed up their dev lifecycle for new applications and features by 62% and 72%, respectively.

However, traditional low-code (and no-code) platforms introduce proprietary languages, requiring developers to learn a new language from scratch. This can take 6 to 12 months, depending on its complexity, desired level of proficiency and the developer's prior experience.

A StackOverflow survey recently found that over 60% of developers utilize JavaScript. This makes the case for more low-code platforms that empower JavaScript developers. Doing so could set the stage for a significant boost in their productivity and efficiency.

The benefits of a low-code platform that incorporates JavaScript include the following:

  • Reduced learning curve
  • Access to a larger talent pool
  • The elimination of redundant work
  • Reduced errors with pre-packaged, fully integrated components
  • Less maintenance
  • A focus on the development that matters most
  • An entire ecosystem to leverage
  • Future-proofed applications
  • Built-in security and compliance

By choosing a low-code platform compatible with the world's 17-million-plus JavaScript developers, businesses can unlock a 10X productivity boost — and solve the problem of a global developer shortage.

In addition, a JavaScript-based low-code platform fosters a strong sense of community and collaboration, enabling developers to learn from one another and share best practices. This collaborative environment improves code quality, accelerates problem-solving and provides a more enjoyable development experience.

Ultimately, utilizing a low-code platform designed exclusively for JavaScript developers will empower them to be more productive and drive innovation rapidly. By adopting this approach, organizations can maximize their investment in their development teams, delivering cutting-edge applications and solutions that set them apart in the market.
