Retool with David Hsu

Internal tools are often built with Ruby on Rails or NodeJS. Developers create entire full-fledged applications in order to suit simple needs such as database lookups, dashboarding, and product refunds. This internal tooling creates a drain on engineering resources. Retool is a low-code platform for creating internal tools. These internal tools can be written by bizops, marketing, or roles other than engineers. David Hsu is the founder of Retool and joins the show to talk through what he has built.
