General information about NoCode

What is the NoCode?

NoCode development aims to facilitate the creation of different elements of a website, software or even an application. The principle of NoCode is based on the absence of writing the typical coding lines of code, moving towards NoCode platforms.

Developing in NoCode consists of dragging and dropping components that are symbolized by visual models. The work is done on a visual interface. In short, you no longer need technical knowledge in computer programming to create a web application.

 However, creativity is required. It is still possible to create a digital solution by opting for classical coding on NoCode platforms.  

 Some examples of no code platforms

 Currently, there are many no code platforms with rich and interesting features. Some of the best known are Bubble and Webflow or WordPress and Adalo. The NoCode Bubble development platform, for example, is known as one of the references in terms of web and mobile application creation.

It benefits from numerous tools and offers many preconfigured modules.

As a functionality, Bubble relies for example on the management of application versions or the management of payments.

Webflow, on the other hand, focuses on the creation of webflow websites.

This platform is more precisely intended for web designers thanks to its precise and powerful graphic editor. Once the development of the site is done, it can be published and hosted on the platform or exported to another host. Webflow also has components dedicated to the creation of forms or animations.

What are the differences between No code and Low-code?

The Low-code development method is halfway between the classic development method and NoCode.

In practice, the tools of Low-Code and NoCode complement each other. Some specialists even classify NoCode platforms as specialized Low-Code tools. In other cases, No code tools are used to create the front-end or client part of a web page, while Low code tools generate the back-end or server part.

Many people confuse the two notions, but they are two very distinct methods.

Concretely, Low-code is aimed at developers with a basic knowledge of coding. The objective is to improve their productivity, via the performance of the tools used. No-code is intended for people who want to develop applications, without having any particular skills in this field.

As everyday Low-Code tools, we can mention Excel or Google Sheet, because they already allow to create a database. In Low Code, there are no lines of code to write. However, a minimum of computer writing skills is required.

The first elementary steps of the project can be undertaken by a normal member of the company. However, it is essential to ask for the services of a developer when it comes to finalizing the creation.

What are the advantages of opting for NoCode?

 The programming market is facing a lack of physical resources, that is to say, experts, in the field of digital development. NoCode is therefore an interesting alternative to accompany companies in their digital transformation. Here is an overview of the main advantages of this method.

 A great flexibility in terms of use

No code is appreciated for its flexibility. Companies and individuals no longer need to call upon a team of developers. In concrete terms, a company's marketing department can directly launch and test a product to deal with a new constraint. For example, there is no need to go to the IT department to create an application to manage a marketing project.

Significant financial savings

 Of course, access to NoCode platforms is not free, but it represents a very small cost compared to the cost of hiring a team of developers. This is a real asset for start-ups that do not have a sufficient budget at their disposal. No code platforms usually offer affordable rates, including low-cost packages for initial testing.

A way to optimize productivity

Thanks to their ergonomics and intuitiveness, NoCode tools can greatly improve the productivity of both experienced and non-experienced developers.

In the case of in-house programming, these tools complement the company's IT resources. You can benefit from rapid development. Are there any limits to NoCode?
