There’s a movement that is gathering momentum presently.
It’s called #NoCode.
Can you guess what it’s about?
It’s about #NoCode.
I’m learning front end development at the moment. After years of putting it off, the call has become too strong. It’s great and I love it.
But boy, it takes some dedication, especially if you not using it in your day job.
Hours spent memorising code, looking at tutorials, having lessons and putting the practice in.
However, there is another way.
There are events, products and launches happening every day all to do with #NoCode.
It’s pretty obvious what this means, but I’m going to spell it out anyway as my boss wanted this post to be around 500 words.
A #NoCode environment or development platform will use visual tools to allow people to create apps, products and sites through such methods as drag and drop.
That’s right, as you guessed #NoCode experience is required.
A good example of this would be a product like https://webflow.com/
Webflow allows you to build your site, get it up and running all without prior knowledge of coding.
You probably would want to spend some time looking at their tutorials beforehand, and I have watched them all.
I think they are some of the best, most straightforward web explainer videos I have seen, see the link below for more:
In fact, there are loads of other products out there, which are really interesting such as:
- Online magazine hosted by Readymag
- Turn a Google Sheet into a website with Sheet2Site
- Internal dashboards and tools with Retool
- Voice app using Voiceflow
- Complex web app combining Zapier and Airtable
- Simple single page website with Carrd
- Paid newsletter with Substack
- AR/VR/3D experience in your browser with Scapic
There are some really active and passionate people in this community of likeminded individuals on twitter such as:

Sorry boss, I couldn’t make it to 500 words, I’ve got some #NoCode building to do.
