We are in very uncertain times. A sanitary crisis is ongoing right now, and an economic crisis is looming. So It is fair to challenge the sustainability and capacity to survive of any initiative.
Ready to survive anything
Open Lowcode is ready for the coming crisis and will survive. Here is why:
- Open Lowcode has rock bottom costs. We have enough cash to survive several years even with the worst-case zero revenue scenario:
- Most of the infrastructure we use is free (Github for open-source…). The exceptions are very cheap (website hosting, SME accounting Saas)
- As the main author of the framework, I have a day job in a company that is as bluechip as it gets. There are also many contributors behind the scene who test and use the framework. All of them are in a similar situation. So we will continue working on the framework whatever happens (slow sales cycles…)
- Open Lowcode is not externally funded: I am the founder and author of Open Lowcode. I have all the levers to decide the next steps. I am laser focused on making the framework thrive. Realistically, this will be the only major public project I will have for the next 5 years, and probably my life. So I literally care about it as if it was my baby.
- Open Lowcode has very limited dependencies: the framework only uses mainstream technology. We will not fail because the authors of a dependency abandon it.
The crisis is an opportunity
In addition, Open Lowcode is very suited to the current situation:
- Many people will be idle in the next weeks, a great occasion to recruit contributors. If you are a developper, you will probably have a lot of time. So why not head for Github and become a contributor ?
- The rock-bottom no-nonsense approach of Open Lowcode matches 100% to the coming economic crisis. I expect many wasteful current ways of doing things to be challenged.
