To code, or not to code, that is the question

It’s 2023. Many modern applications and websites get envisioned through no-code platforms, which take care of the complex parts of building so you can focus on the unique elements of your project – all without ever needing to write code yourself. 

What is no code?

No Code is a term used in the software industry that refers to any technology or technique that does not rely on coding languages to build things. There are different No Code technologies, such as drag-and-drop builders, visual programming tools, text editors, etc. These tools empower people with little or no technical knowledge and allow them to create interactive applications without any prior coding experience. 

The benefits of no code

  • All ages, genders, and experience levels can quickly dive in
  • Faster and easier process for developing products and applications
  • Allows people with diverse backgrounds to contribute and collaborate on projects in a way they never have before

The downside of no code

It’s easy to start with no code, but that comes with a trade-off: you have less control over your product’s features and design. In some cases, this can be a good thing—especially if you want to focus on business rather than programming. My advice would be to keep a balance and only use no-code platforms that tick all the boxes.
