Two weeks ago we launched the very first version of Autocode on Product Hunt and Hacker News. Autocode is a brand-new in-browser IDE that upgrades the API-to-API workflow tooling of yesteryear with automatic code generation and provides professional tooling developers know and love. The two primary goals of Autocode are to (1) bring professional-grade development tools and best practices to makers looking to build custom workflows with code, and (2) give professional developers an easier, more intuitive way to handle the "grunt work" of API integrations between ecosystems.
So far, we've seen some pretty exciting implementations and we'll be both showcasing and highlighting them to the broader development community as we continue to grow.
Ben Sehl, CDO at Kotn, has built some amazing lead qualification tools using Typeform, Clearbit, Airtable and Slack.
Albert Lee, Cloud Architect at the City of Boston, has automated GitHub pull request reviews by sending notifications via Slack and storing response times and more in Airtable.
Akanksha Kevalramani, UX Designer at ServiceNow, is running a team wellness Slack app that connects to Airtable and serves about 100 team members.
Matthew Lal, Ops and IT at Schmooz Media, has been automating Stripe billing for their customers, as well as creating custom connectors to Timely to manage hours clocked by their team.
Mario Hachemer, CTO of FastBill, has been working with his team to build automatic time-off settings in Slack and a whole lot more.
We're listening closely to our early adopters, both makers and developers. We're learning that, while Autocode is increasingly accessible to professional software developers, makers are looking for more hands-on visual tooling. We'll be continuing to iterate on Autocode to bring the best in visual workflow building to a code-backed environment. On top of that, our fledgling Maker.dev community has chapters in Toronto, San Diego, and is coming to San Francisco shortly!
If you're looking for help and are excited to dive in, you should click here to join our Discord server. Our goal, from here on out, is to come at you once a week with more material, tools and knowledge to get building. We'll be baking more reference materials into product as we grow, and please let us know if you have any requests!
