A brief history of the development of Low-Code

Over the years, many different variations of the concept and the name “Low-Code” have come from different sources, organizations, and suppliers. The term has existed recently, but the concept is not newly introduced. Low-Code is the creation of applications with a minimum need for programming applying the approach to visual building and drag-and-drop technique.
