A serial entrepreneur finally embraces open source (Ep. 486)
Serial entrepreneur Arpit Mohan, cofounder and CTO of Appsmith, tells Ben and Cassidy about his path to building Appsmith, an open-source project that makes it easy for engineers to build, ship, and maintain internal tools. They cover the “stigma” of low-code and no-code tools, why Appsmith is investing more time and effort in design, and why open-source advocates are excited for Hacktoberfest. Also: Another computing career launched by Tamagotchi.
Appsmith is an open-source, low-code platform for building and maintaining internal tools like custom dashboards, admin panels, and, of course, CRUD apps.
Watch Arpin’s talk on how a low-cost, low-tech solution can simplify online payments.
Arpit isn’t the first engineer we’ve talked to whose career was sparked by the digital pets of the 90s. Listen to Episode #431: Words of wisdom for self-taught developers.
It’s time to get excited about Hacktoberfest, an annual DigitalOcean event that encourages people to contribute to open-source projects throughout the month of October.
