What is no-code and why you should be using it.

But doesn't everything use code!

Yeah, you're right, but no one needs to know that. Let me explain.... No-code is helping companies develop apps and solve problems faster and at a lower cost. It essentially changes how companies operate by expanding the tools available to everyone, not just software developers. They are also increasingly accessible and intuitive. In fact this website was built using a "no code" tool called Webflow. I used to develop websites by opening up an editor such as Notepad++, Atom or in my early days, Dreamweaver and with the little knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript that I gained from my overly expensive college degree from DeVry, I was able to string together some pretty decent websites. In fact my old portfolio site was built using code. And there's still so much use for code and software developers, trust me no-code doesn't mean no-coders, it just shifts how software developers approach software and what they spend their time doing.

Speaking of time, let's look at some general facts. The time saved through no-code development has a direct impact on bottom line expenditure. With traditional development, building software can cost over $100,000 per project and require months or even years of development time. By comparison, no-code platforms allow for fast application development at a fraction of the cost. As stated before this doesn't remove the need for software developers. Many businesses are now using no-code automation platforms alongside their existing IT resources to complement the work they’re doing rather than replace it. No-code platforms equip IT departments with the tools they need to develop quickly without having to invest in manual coding or relying on external consultants. In fact, IT departments are among the top users of no-code technology and have seen massive improvement in their day-to-day operations since integrating no-code into their workflow. Overall, companies that use no-code platforms are able to develop products much faster than those companies using traditional forms.

In conclusion, there are many benefits in using this type of visual programming. No-code automation will make you more productive and enable you to build applications that are customized to your unique business needs. It's just a smart, efficient way to build and run software.
