Why No-Code is the Next Big Thing

You would know which piece fits where without any difficulty!This is exactly how ‘no-code’ platforms work.

The jigsaw puzzle still exists, but now it’s remarkably easy, such that anybody can solve it.

No-code platforms enable you to create software applications merely with drag and drop graphical user interfaces, or with larger and a handful pieces.

Their advantages are profound.

The bottleneck is eliminated because instead of being caught up in the web of tech-infrastructure development, the non-tech entrepreneur can simply turn to no-code.

And for pretty much everything, or at least the essentials.

On no-code, one can build apps, websites, algorithms and what not.

In fact, more than 95% of all kinds of applications can be built using no-code.

No-code platforms don’t just offer preset UX layers to streamline processes.

One can also include surveys to show or hide certain information according to a certain user.

One can apply ‘if-then’ logic on data tabulated on spreadsheets.

This means you can power the entire back-end merely by connecting numerous spreadsheets — without writing a single line of code.

Finally, a fully-functional, interactive app can be constructed as a combination of different tools — integrate the different processes with marketing tools and voilà.

“The mere sight of seemingly innumerable pieces can be daunting.

”Besides flexibility, no-code also allows you to launch a demo version of your app.

Realize that this is a remarkable opportunity to test an app even before it’s even launched.

As users use the app, data is generated, which can be analyzed to predict the possibility of the app’s success.

No-code developers launch a crude or imperfect version of their app and improve its qualities such as functionality and UX based on the user response.

From the response, one can infer what works and what doesn’t.

What works can be further optimized, what doesn’t can be refined.

Yes, trial and error could mean exposing the public to an ugly app, but, one, at least it’s out there, and two, you’re no more in the dark.

As Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn’s co-founder, remarked: “If you’re not embarrassed by the first version of your product, then you’ve launched too late.

” Obviously, the convenience saves a lot of time — something entrepreneurs don’t have much.

This time can be used to focus on the core business, on the core ideas responsible for generating revenue.

Lost in TranslationCoders can rarely design.

Designers can rarely code.

This is why they exist in a symbiotic relationship.

Coders need designers to create the blueprint, while designers need coders to implement what they devised.

However, there’s ample room for miscommunication in this relationship.

Much is lost while conveying what one needs from the other.

Every team of coders and designers is aware of this struggle.

It’s notorious for the frustration it causes.

But it is unavoidable because both species cannot survive independently.

Well, now they can.

No-code platforms offer preset UX layers, which render the blueprint and therefore a designer unnecessary.

Both coders and designers can choose their favorite layer and proceed to build their own app or website.

No-code cuts the cord.

It enables them to create their dream app or website completely on their own.

Each component in its constitution is incorporated by their and only their will.

One would think bigger chunks of jigsaw pieces deny the opportunity to make modifications, but this is not true.

The first platforms were naturally very basic, however, today, advanced platforms allow the integration of complex designs and processes.

In fact, workflow-based programming enables you to define exactly what happens, move by move.

One can create his or her data structures or logic.

In case of, say, WordPress websites, the developer has full control over the tiniest details from dimensions and typography to fonts and effects.

Coder or designer, your ideas are yours to execute.

Yes, no-code offers convenience, but that, we believe, is not its greatest benefit.

Rather for us, it’s freedom, freedom to unleash your imagination.
