We believe the primary way to drive this change involves two things:
The founding goal of the Remix platform is to enable rapid building of highly customizable views & flows via composition, rather than coding. Our “Studio” provides a live, reactive, and visual (no-code) environment where users can “remix” components across apps.
Remix can run at multiple user engagement points:
In the traditional software development model,
The time from initial idea to iteration is typically a few months. The team may be large and siloed. There is also a lot of “throwaway” work in this process: the spec documents, the static design mockups, and other interstitial assets.
The process and complexity of building engaging and useful digital experiences cannot be trivialized. An important consideration for creative platforms is the tradeoff between expressive power and ease-of-use & ease-of-learning.
Typically, platforms make choices along this spectrum, so builders end up with either:
Our approach is based on the observation that in a collaborative model, the platform can be structured into multiple layers, with different levels of expressive power and re-use in each layer.
Consider the building and use of Wikipedia. About 1–2% of Wikipedia users actually write entire articles. 6–9% of users write or modify some paragraphs. The majority of users consume the work done by the other creators and editors.
The Remix platform offers a similar model, with the domain expert, the designer, and the developer skill sets, operating with different capabilities, to build and iterate together to develop high quality digital experiences.
The Remix platform streamlines this by allowing all participants to collaborate on the same always-live substrate:
There’s so much more about the platform to talk about. In the next few posts we’ll show examples of flows & tools built on Remix. We’ll also show how to leverage the power of cloud microservices and edge devices to enable users to be more productive, securely and privately.
