Have you found yourself having an enlightening idea about how to solve a big problem? Whether it’s a business idea or a non-profit project that would help many people, chances are that for your idea to be made a reality, you need to create a custom app or your own web platform.
Or perhaps you already use third-party software to manage and execute your idea; however, since it’s not tailored for your project, it lacks some key functionalities that would make your day-to-day easier and your project more successful. How cool it would be to automate those repetitive processes and gain some time for yourself so you can focus on what matters. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a chatbot answering people’s most common questions and concerns?
But in order to have all of these, you need a developer, of course. It would help if you had someone in your team who spent years learning how to code in order to create software and applications. Should you learn to code from scratch? Sure, you can do that. It will take a significant amount of time, but no doubt it will be worth the effort.
Alternatively, in just a couple of months, you could learn a set of intuitive tools that allow you to quickly create the same custom solutions and functionalities your project or idea demands. Let me tell you something: such tools exist.
Welcome to the world of no-code development.
What are no-code tools?
No-code tools are a set of visual programming platforms which allow non-technical people to create mobile and web applications, websites, automation, chatbots, relational databases and more.
Think of how Canva democratized graphic design. In the same way, no-code tools democratize development and programming, making them more accessible to anyone with a great idea and the determination to bring it to life, so they can actually execute them and start validating their business idea or project, regardless of their background or technical expertise.
In short: no-code tools are empowering people to create their own technological solutions, accelerating the digital transformation of businesses and all kinds of projects.
Do you have an idea? Do you think you have the solution to a real-world, urgent problem? Would you like to flesh it out and start executing it? Now’s the time. Google “no-code tools” or “no-code development” to get acquainted with this fascinating and empowering movement.
(In a next post I’ll summarize some of the most widely used no-code tools so you can start exploring them).
