Alex Handy, Principal Program Marketing Manager, Red Hat
Steve Wood, SVP of Product & Developer Platform, Slack

The way companies, teams and individuals work has changed more in the past two years than at any period in history, requiring companies of all sizes to readjust their approach to improving efficiencies and productivity, while making work more pleasant for everyone. This all begins with the infrastructure we work on.

A truly transformative enterprise platform must be created with all users in mind – from technical to nontechnical – to create an agile workplace where work is frictionless and less noisy. At Slack, we believe low-code and no-code automation holds the key to supercharging productivity both by helping developers of all levels deploy new applications quicker and easier than ever before, and making it easier for everyday users to build and use the tools they need to get work done.

During this session, Steve and Alex will share insight on:

How companies and developers can enable more users to problem solve and build sophisticated workflows and applications without a single line of code
The benefits developers will realize with more low-code/no-code functionality, including faster outcomes, more efficiency, and less bottleneck.
