Brian Katz talks with Dan Bricklin, the CTO of Alpha Software. Dan is the father of the spreadsheet, as he created Visicalc. They talk about what Alpha Software is and some of the things they enable people to do. They are about allowing people who don’t know how to program to build apps that they can deploy on devices. They talk about rapid application development as Alpha Anywhere is a low code building system. They talk about Dan’s Watch Bench app for prototyping apps on the Apple watch. Brian and Dan then debate about how hard it is to develop a mobile app.
