What Are No-Code Tools?
Whether you are a technically challenged but business savvy creative or an expert software engineer, no-code development tools can save you time and energy in software development. No-code tools do just as their names imply, allowing users to create software with minimal to no coding through the use of a visual interface (for example, using buttons or a drag-and-drop template). Greater ease and access to software development benefits everyone: it reduces barriers to entry for beginners, gives users the chance to put their design and business ideas into practice directly, and allows experienced developers to share their passion, save time and focus on more complex projects.
Using No-Code Platforms
In the blink of an eye you can get started using no-code tools to build and launch your app, website, automation, AI tools and more by exploring the user-friendly visual interface of your platform of choice. There is no need to feel intimidated: we will be your trusty guides on your software development journey! In the Genetrix program, we will introduce you to the tools and applications of several of these platforms, including:
- Bubble for building apps (mobile, voice, web, etc.)
- WordPress for building websites
- Airtable and Zapier for building task automations
As you add functional and design elements to your project using graphical user interfaces, code-compliant code is generated. You can refer to this code to learn the basics of programming languages (and beyond!) and to ensure that an experienced software developer can iron out any kinks in large-scale applications of your software.
You can use these programs to quickly develop polished and sophisticated software customized to your personal and professional needs, spend less time on prototypes, reduce the costs that come with consulting experts in marketing, design and software (while consulting with them for more complex tasks), and rely less on templates that may not fit with your vision.
