A no-code platform is a development platform that uses a visual development environment to allow layman users to create apps, through methods such as drag-and-drop, adding application components to create a complete application. With no-code, users don't need prior coding knowledge to create apps.
Low-code development is a process that aims to make development of software easier than the traditional method of hard coding each and every line of a program or software. This approach minimizes hard coding through the use of prepackaged templates, graphic design techniques, and drag-and-drop tools to make software.
In addition to using a graphical user interface, they also removed the necessity of creating frameworks, linking databases, and other tasks that are typically attached to hard coding. This made development simpler and easier, such that even people without coding knowledge could develop applications.
These tools are reducing the amount of time and coding expertise required to translate an idea into something people can use. You no longer need to become a programmer to build things on the internet, empowering a new wave of makers from different backgrounds and perspectives.
As creating things on the internet becomes more accessible, more people will become makers. It’s no longer limited to the <1% of engineers that can code resulting in an explosion of ideas from all kinds of people.
