Trends #0006 โ€” No Code

๐Ÿ” Problem

Developers are lazy and curious. Repetitive tasks annoy them.

๐Ÿ’ก Solution

No-Code tools help you build things without writing code. Blogs, forums, mobile apps, online stores and a lot more can be built without knowing how to code. 

The life of a no-code tool starts with developers solving their own problems.

Most no-code tools share this path ๐Ÿ‘‡

  1. Developers write reusable functions to write less code
  2. Then they create frameworks to write even less code
  3. Then they deploy APIs to help others write less code
  4. Then they create no code tools to help others write no code

๐Ÿ˜  Haters

“Atlanta isn’t the no-code capital of the world.”
Of course it is.

“You can’t build a business on no-code.”
I wrote Million Dollar No Code Businesses to dismiss this. It doesn’t matter what we think because it has already happened.

“No-Code can’t scale.”
Most no-code tools can scale but it doesn’t matter. Scaling isn’t the hard part. Traction is. Once you validate demand, I’ll come scale it for you. ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ‘€

“No-Code will eliminate developer jobs.”
I won’t argue. DM me a falsifiable theory and your confidence level. Let’s make a bet.
