There are many different definitions and explanations of what is no-code. I have shared my opinion on this blog:
Today I read Softr scores $2.2M seed for its no-code website and web app platform powered by Airtable article on TechCrunch and liked the very first sentence:
No-code — software that lets you accomplish tasks that previously required coding skills — is an increasingly hot space, even if the basic premise has been promised and not fully realised for many years.https://techcrunch.com/2021/01/21/softr/
I think this part:
No-code — software that lets you accomplish tasks that previously require coding skills
is one of the most clear ways to describe what is no-code.
Many more people can now build solutions (democratizing software development). This also means solutions can be built faster (make software development faster and easier)
The first article I linked above What is no-code?, I talk about no-code having two main goals:
- Make software development faster and easier
- Democratize software development
What do you think?
