What is no code?

No code app development is a new trend in the app development industry. It has been around for a while but it has only seen an increase in popularity over the past few years.

Can anyone build apps?

In no code app development, anyone can use drag-and-drop tools to build apps. They can either use prebuilt templates or start from scratch in order to design their app and set up its functionalities.

No code app development tools are used by non-technical people to develop apps without any coding knowledge. This type of development is great for those who don't have time to learn how to code or for those who want to get a prototype out quickly for testing purposes.

It's not surprising that the no code or low-code platforms have become so popular in recent years. The traditional web development process is time-consuming and cumbersome for both developers and clients alike. The no code approach has been seen as a solution to this problem by enabling anyone with minimal knowledge of web design and coding to build their own app, quickly and easily.

No Code vs Low Code

No code vs low code is a debate that has been going on for a long time. However, it is not about the skillset that the developer has but about the kind of app they want to create and the level of customization they want.

No-code app builders provide a drag-and-drop interface which allows users to create apps without any coding knowledge. On the other hand, low code app builders require some coding knowledge but are more flexible and offer more customization options.

Skip working with mockups, go straight to the app builder

Building a nocode app is so much quicker than traditional app development. Instead of hiring a developer and UI designer most people can launch a minimal viable product themselves.

You don't need to wait for a UI designer to create a document only they will understand. There are

Once you've got some basic UI in the Bubble app builder you can immediately move onto
