Google shut down App Maker

Google’s no/low-code platform will be shut down due to low usage. Tried it once. It was very slow to use from Europe at least (server had to be in US).

Yup - saw this. It's interesting, because there seem to be so many alternative low-code/no-code platforms out there these days, that Claris's relative long term history actually gives reassurance to both devs and end-users that it's something worth investing in long-term, and that hopefully won't disappear in a puff of smoke after a few months...

For those looking for a link:

This is the risk that comes with a proprietary platform. The cloud hype increased volatility of software, because it simply stops working, no VM running legacy SW.
At least Google allows continued access to data without the SW (SQL db).
