“The future of coding is no coding at all,” says Wanstrath. Nowadays the need for software is higher than the availability of coders. So, no-code platforms have the potential to fill this gap and offer the solution for rapid application development.
It is an alternative to the custom software development process where it “replaces coding with click, drag, and drop processes in a visual and intuitive interface.” It is not actually “no-code”, you are building with code but it is just hidden and provided as a graphical interface. Appy Pie, Airtable, Nintex, Appsheet, Salesforce, Bubble, Microsoft power Apps, Betty Blocks, BP Logix BPMS, Outgrow are some of the top-rated no-code platforms available.
No-code development platforms are dependable and reliable since they are stable tools to build efficient apps with very limited resources. They are not just limited to building web pages but also complex digital solutions such as Business Process Management, CRM Development, Web Apps, and Mobile Apps. This not only minimizes the cost involved in hiring skilled developers and specialized programmers or training them in Python, Java, or other programs but also cuts down the time spent on app development. The apps built on these platforms are also fast since they are built using pre-built modules. Unlike traditional programming, any feature change can be done instantly.
You can opt for no-code platforms if you have a startup company and it is struggling with limited time, budget, and IT resources. No-code platforms are best suited for creating apps with fewer integrations and customizations as most modules are already prebuilt. You can go for no-code tools if your requirements fit within the constraints of that particular tool. No code does not mean that there is no need for developers and their expertise. Sophisticated and highly dynamic websites built using professional programmers cannot be done using no-code platforms. But it is very interesting to know that even non-programmers can build and launch apps on their own using no-code development platforms. No-code is not the entire future but it surely has a place in the future.
