Introduction :- 

At first I started my web development with coding. I always wanted to create creative web pages, portals, and websites with a good design. I have 2 years of coding experience in development work. For this I learned many computer languages ​​like php, html, css, javascript and many more. I always enjoyed coding and developed many portals using it.

Just recently I heard about No Code, so I started reading it and did some development work by doing it. Then I came to know that the one who used to do the work in a lot of time, he gets it very quickly and very well with the no code platform.

What is No Code?

A no code development platform is a tool for building software applications without coding; a popular and promising alternative to traditional software development for non-technical business users hoping to build their own full-fledged applications.

If you are a small business that lacks the budget to hire a software developer or outsource to a software development house, no code platforms move the power of innovation into the hands of your entire organisation.

Using a no code platform, you can equip more of your workforce with the tools they require to become citizen developers. Business developers and other non-programmer roles can step in to meet the demands of faster application delivery, building business, web and mobile applications on their own.

What I experienced is the shift from code to no code?

No code is much better than code. When I started working on No Code I saw that I can deliver my projects to my clients very well in very less time. Here apart from time, there are many other benefits like I get well-versed about database, algorithm, workflow, and many more. Here I do not have to remember computer languages. One advantage of using no code is that we get many things ready in advance, such as templates, procedures and many more. If we want to use the code too, then we can use it in it too. Overall I like No Code Development.

Why I Choose No Code?

No-code simplifies prototyping :- 

No-code platforms offer an abstraction layer over code. Meaning, they take the fundamentals of code and translate them into a simple drag and drop solution — allowing creators to build modern apps and websites visually.

Fewer dependencies :-

Everyone who’s ever managed a project, regardless of discipline, knows that the more people you need work from, the more difficult the logistics of on-time and on-budget delivery get. The traditional digital delivery process relies on at least:

— Content

— Design

— Development

And for more complex deliverables, engineers may be needed as well. Plus, each of the three disciplines above may well involve multiple practitioners, so the above list could well look more like:

— Content (strategist, copywriter, SEO, information architect)

— Design (UX designer, UI designer, interaction designer, animator)

— Development (front-end dev, content dev, etc.)

No-code tools' value lies in the fact that developers and engineers don't have to have their hand in every step of the development process.

Designers using no code are building an actual functioning website as they prototype with all of the HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript in place. Eliminating the disconnect between prototyping and building makes for more rapid application development.

Pros :- 

Better Agility :

Most development is done via a drag-and-drop interface, built visually with pre-built modules. This means building apps is a lot faster. Testing is generally automated which further cuts down on development time.

Increased Productivity :

Since apps can be built at a much faster pace, IT staff aren’t overloaded with requests from every other department, and there are fewer people waiting for work to be done. What used to take weeks or months can now be completed in hours or days.

Easily Changeable :

The problem with traditional hand coding is that you can’t really change a functionality or feature at the drop of a hat, especially if you’re coding in a language foreign to you. With no code, you can. If you need to change something, you simply implement new logic, and can have your change ready in a matter of hours.

Cons :-

  1. There are Limited Templates.
  2. Security Issues arise from Lack of Control.
  3. Don’t Have Own Source Code.
