OpenDevin: A Step Closer to Zero-Code Programming

This is such a major development in our industry that we have to write an article here. If you are adopting Maestro Framework, you can now use AI to create your custom interactions and SQL scripts. You no longer need to know how to code to develop applications or automations. The next version of Maestro, v2.0, will focus on spec-driven development and integration, where all that is required is a clear specification and your application will be built automatically and tested by autonomous AI agents.
