Wait, what is No-Code?
No-code is a way of building industry-grade websites and applications, without writing code. Yes, any technology is made using code, even the no-code platforms that provide you all raw materials any app or website might need. The difference? While building, instead of coding, one can only drag and drop those raw materials and connect them into their app. No-code platforms can support complex app building too, with API integrations, data storage, custom landing pages and more.
You can use no-code tools to power up and run your business online, build customer portals and stores, and even create marketplaces. If you have a computer and an internet connection, you can start building apps and websites right away, with minimal to 0 investment.
From 2014 to 2021, the No-code industry has grown at an unparalleled rate. Many platforms enabling no-code development for various sectors are raising millions from investors. It’s a dynamic space, with almost limitless possibilities you can harness. And following the experts in this list will help you access the no-code space better and help you learn faster.
