Today at the TNW’s conference in Amsterdam, we caught up backstage with Siebrand Dijkstra, current CEO of Appmachine. He is taking part in the live version of TNW’s Academy.

Appmachine has a simple premise: Anyone that wants to build an app, should be able to build one. And you shouldn’t need to be able to code. Attractive? One more thing: the finished applications are all native apps.

It’s not just for amateurs, in Siebrand’s eyes. The company is working on a version of the service that will allow developers to input data sets into their app.

In the words of Paul Sewars, Appmachine is akin to a DreamWeaver for apps. But it’s easier to use, Siebrand Dijkstra wants you to know. Enjoy!
