Although this comment is usually said condescendingly, the truth is they’re not far off from reality. Don’t get me wrong, OutSystems is so much more than that, and you can build highly complex, enterprise-grade, business-responsive full-fledged solutions.

Like a magician waving his magic wand, you can use your mouse to drag-and-drop elements on the OutSystems Service Studio – OutSystems visual development environment -, and just as a magic trick, create a first app.
