I stumbled upon your Meetup group, “Old Dogs, New Tricks”, and it seemed to be that you might be interested in looking at my product, Tersus.
Tersus is an open source, visual programming that makes it easy to create web and mobile application with very little training (compared to alternatives), while retaining full flexibility. It has been used to create anything from small tactical applications to large scale enterprise systems (including a full-fledged ERP system).
I will happily provide more information (I’m now based in Silicon Valley). If you decide to give Tersus a try, we’d love to get your feedback.
