What drove your interest in no-code?

I wanted to learn how to build things for the web as a way to bring ideas into the world. I was intrigued by learning web development "from scratch" and played around with it for a little while, but my progress towards an actual product was quite slow. So I started looking into no-code tools in hopes of being able to build and see results more quickly and have been fascinated ever since.

What are you working on?

Continuously working on my own personal operating system (mostly Notion) as well as a non-profit directory in Bubble. Currently, I am finding ways to leverage no-code at work where I am responsible for Operations and focused on automating processes and building internal tools to make everyones lives easier.

What drove your interest in no-code?

I absolutely love that I can create a website or an app all on my own, without having to hire costly developers. No-code allowed me to branch out on my own and build a successful 6-figure, one-woman business offering my services to social good brands. I also love riding the waves of innovation and no-code is the future of tech for the masses. In the same way that Instagram made everyone into photographers, I believe no-code will make everyone developers and makers.

I'm in love with the app I'm working on now. It aims to end the screen time struggle for families, while it helps early teens level up their Real World lives instead of only their virtual ones. Kids and parents make trades so they both get what they want.

What drove your interest in no-code?

My background is in marketing so I started by passing customer data across CRMs and databases using Zapier. As more integrations were introduced, my possibilities were endless. I was always trying to find ways to save time and craft the right messages to the right users.

I have 2-3 things I am working on now. Personally, I have created a scheduling app for our family to keep all our activities in check. I also have created a private messaging app for our sports teams since not all parents feel comfortable using public apps. Long-term wise, I am working on a marketplace app for farmers to sell their goods to consumers.

Greg SmithConnect with me ⭢

What drove your interest in no-code?

I've always been a tinkerer. There have been needs in the businesses that I worked with and there is of course always a need for development resources. No Code has been at the forefront of how I operate a business. What can be done without the need for development resources?

Tristan OwenConnect with me ⭢

What drove your interest in no-code?

The rise of "visual programming" and solving interesting or challenging problems that I used to think was only possible with code. Being able to build something oneself, without having to write any code, is a magical and empowering feeling. I want others to experience the magic!

Sabine MorrowConnect with me ⭢

What drove your interest in no-code?

I stumbled onto Webflow and then stumbled onto Product Hunt and that started my curiosity and journey into the no-code movement.  What makes using no-code tools so exciting is that I have the power to build robust apps and websites, both front and back end, with widgets, with API connectors, all without needing to call on a developer. This is so powerful.
