GeneralHypercard? Really? Pin

In a recent article 'The evolution of low-code/no-code development', a reference was made to Apples' Hypercard. It's successor (Supercard) was a much more robust development environment.

I developed a complex medical training simulator using Supercard back in the late 80's. Believe me when I tell you that (a) both suffered from the Apple 'bomb' periodically. Press run, ding, power off, power on; and (b) neither was a low code/no code solution, IF, you were developing anything useful.

Apple had this toaster approach that they did not need to give you any reason for a failure - just blow up. Not sure if that is still the case, since Apple has never breached the enterprise environment.

Carry it forward in time, and you would see that 'cards' were similar to todays Visual Basic/Visual Studio 'forms'. But there was a lot of coding behind the scene to make thing work - just like today.
