One of the areas that have grown the most in recent years is programming.
We know the difficulty involved in this activity, from study to practice, demanding time, effort, and a lot of experience. But did you know that there is a "new area" that is growing a lot and can only add to the world of programming?
This new field is being called “the no-code technology movement”, which allows you to develop web, mobile and automation solutions without having to program in platforms like VSCode, Flutter or XCode, depending only on GUI (Graphical User Interface) tools.
Learn more about these tools and their power on the web.
You don't need to be a trained programmer to be able to use them, being only necessary to understand the logic behind the code, and the organization behind the development structure and start customizing the site, app or AI.
These tools use a lot of the click, slide and/or drag and drop method, but it's still necessary to have a medium knowledge about them so that websites or applications don’t get overloaded or with messy code.
Webflow, for example, transcribes all of your front-end development using HTML, CSS and JS. What you need to do in a no-code way is to define the structure, location of elements, sizes, colors, fonts, images, fields and interactions. Thus, it’s possible to build all of it without having to write a single line of programming code, providing more agility and much faster delivery.
More powerful platforms, such as Webflow, once again, also have <Embed> fields for you to insert custom code, allowing the programmer to go beyond no-code.
Programs for website and app development
In the list of top no-code web development tools, we also have Bubble and Carrd.
Each one has a different and relevant feature.
Bubble chooses to develop an entire app using much of the workflow framework and making room for external plugins, which facilitates no-code.
Carrd on the other hand proposes to create websites with a single page. It’s a little more limited, but it has the responsiveness and it’s simple to use.
Finally, Webflow provides an agile way to build a website from scratch, providing flawless and responsive sites. It has CMS creation support for blog articles or other purposes, and all of this with exchanges that provide an amazing user experience.
No-code platforms for voice-controlled technologies
With the popularity of voice assistants like "Alexa" and "Google Assistant", new no-code platforms for this home automation process have been quickly emerging, always providing easy access and management of the elements.
These devices have in their own apps customized routines that automate your day-to-day, although they end up being limited to certain tasks. But platforms such as “Voiceflow” and “Otter.ai” are now here to be more complete for your smart home automation.
No-code platforms for project management
This is a relaxed way to plan with spreadsheets, but still with flexibility and altruism for your personal development and the development of companies that also participate in these sites to improve business systematization. Big brands like Netflix, Buzzfeed, Medium, Spotify, The New York Times, Doordash, and Uber use at least one of the tools below:
No-code platforms for metrics analysis
There is a direct link to data science made for your company's business management, helping you to make quick decisions based on developed data.
Companies like Twitter and Uber use Google Analytics, Mixpanel and Obviously.ai, for example, because they know the advantage of turning reports into more relevant CTAs, leaving any planning more mature and effective.
The no-code platforms have changed not only the executions but also the work environment, leaving aside the archaic way of programming and always adapting to the daily practices of intense use, along with technology updates, allowing an easier and more fresh life.
Even though it’s a simpler way to develop a project, a lot of research and a basic knowledge of it it’s still essential, such as getting deep into its fast-growing fields.
What about you? Do you feel confident getting into the no-code generation that is coming up?
