A common question I get asked is, “how do I learn no-code.”

No-code is an approach to designing and creating applications without the need for programming skills. It’s not a new invention (see Photoshop, WordPress). You'll notice that learning “no-code” probably isn’t the right question to ask due to the number of tools considered “no-code” (see photo). A better question is, “What’s my desired outcome? And what are the requirements I need to achieve that outcome?” Image source: Baserow

This question usually comes from two different camps:

  1. An employee in a non-technical role who wants to deploy tasks without adding to the dev’s team workload.
  2. The second camp typically wants to start a side business or agency.

Today, I will discuss camp #1—the employee working in a non-technical role. (I’ll cover the second in a later post).

💡First, let’s define “no-code.”

No-code is an approach to designing and creating applications without the need for programming skills. It’s not a new invention (see Photoshop, WordPress).

You'll notice that learning “no-code” probably isn’t the right question to ask due to the number of tools considered “no-code” (see photo).

A better question is, “What’s my desired outcome? And what are the requirements I need to achieve that outcome?”

For example,

→ Are you looking to launch a landing page quickly?

A tool like Carrd will do the trick.

→ Do you want to automate tasks and require a tool that integrates with Airtable, Asana and HubSpot

💡Run a Google search: “[Insert App Name] Automation Integrations.”

You’ll quickly find a slew of options. If you’d like to keep it simple and ship fast, Zapier does the job.

Comment below if you’re in camp #1 and want to build something. I’ll provide some options for you.

🚨 The real challenge:

Finding the right tool isn’t the real obstacle.

It’s getting buy-in from your company to invest in a specific tool. From my experience, startups are more inclined to use a tool (if it makes sense).

As the company grows, it gets trickier.

What are your thoughts? Any tips on getting buy-in from leadership?
