When you’re just getting started with your no-code journey it’s natural to start out with lots of questions. What are the best tools that you should try first? What are the easiest or hardest platforms to learn? What are the simplest projects you can build?

We hope you’ve enjoyed taking a sneak peek at our most popular tutorials and that maybe you’ve seen some to try out soon! It’s clear that Bubble, Adalo & Webflow are the most complex tools with the longest tutorials by far but also some of the most in demand tools to learn with most of the top 10 featuring just those 3 tools!

Some of the most watched shorter tutorials tend to focus on building something specific like a clone of an existing app, a job board or a particular business type like a subscription or membership site. This shows that people choose these tutorials to get a specific job done. They want to get to their end goal of building a live project - rather than to learn about a tool or no-code in general.
