The future of no-code development
Insight 2 min read
In the past few years’ there’s been waves of new platforms allowing websites, apps and backends to be built without having to write a single line of code. Most no-code platforms are driven by graphical interfaces that can be much easier to understand.
One of the main challenges designers often find is how difficult it is to create the vision they have in their heads, especially if they can’t write or understand code. For many, the thought of spending hours looking at lines of what feel like hieroglyphics isn’t helpful, especially if you are a person that works visually.
Introducing no-code platform
A website building platform called Webflow helps rapidly create websites and high fidelity prototypes without having to reach out to a developer. Giving the freedom to test, understand and create meaningful online experiences with ease.
What was once only possible by skilled developers, no-code platforms, along with the many tutorials on YouTube, anyone can be well on their way to building their next big idea. Being a non-developer no longer matters.
Turning your ideas into a reality…
One of the best things about no-code tools is the concept that you can come up with an idea, and build it. The lowered barrier to entry these tools represent means that it’s now much easier to build concepts, test them and see if they’re worth the time for further development.
So, whilst you still need to understand the basics of how websites are built – e.g. the specific values of CSS, using a no-code platform in projects makes it easier to show developers what you want to build. Eliminating any discrepancy between prototyping and building.
What using no-code can mean for your team?
Using no-code means your team can focus their skills on where they are most valuable. Whether it’s updating content on the website or simply changing a form, it provides a simple way to create, update and iterate at a pace that avoids the need for a developer.
