Who Says You Need to Code to Create Code? Celebrating Milestones with AI

“Back into work mode. It’s 6pm and I’m a bit weary now, and wondering whether to sort of keep going or to wind things up. But, one thing that’s sort of coming to my mind right now is, I’m not a coder. I have the AI, over the last couple of days, generate JavaScript that can do very simple, sort of rudimentary programming stuff. But, you know, take a string and break it into fields and things like that. Um, without me knowing programming knowledge, incorporating that into our, sort of, sales, automation workflow, is just absolutely amazing.

And I’m sort of wondering how to encapsulate that within a design brief for an image generator. Or I suppose, just really as a bit of a milestone moment, and acknowledging that milestone moment. OK, so there’s your brief.”

Scott Maxworthy (me), my “new” daily journal notes process into ChatGPT to summarise and convert into “production scenes post-it notes” (as part of a much larger story/ journey about “ideation to creation”).
