When most people hear the word “code” in a sentence, they think of a complex arrangement of GREEN letters, numbers, and figures trickling down like raindrops against a black backdrop.
Or maybe that’s just me?
If “code” is a mysterious puzzle of digital green rain, then WTF is “no-code”, how the hell do you use it, and Why TF is Startmate running a Fellowship dedicated to it?
By the end of this article, you will have all the answers to these pressing questions.
“No-code is a visual abstraction of code. No-code tools take the fundamentals of code and translate them into simple drag-and-drop solutions.”
In layman's terms, “no-code” allows anyone, regardless of their technical ability, to build on the internet.
Before no-code, websites and apps could only be built by programmers and coding wizards.
That is a very exclusive group when you consider the fact that only 0.5% of the global population knows how to code.
No-Code has one goal: remove these barriers and make building on the Internet accessible to everyone.
For the remaining 95.5% of the population, no-code has been pivotal in enabling people to build websites, develop apps, streamline workflows, manage customer data, integrate payments, and more.
Here are some examples of popular no-code tools to get you warmed up:
One of the biggest bottlenecks for entrepreneurs and creatives in the startup community is the tech side of a business, in particular: the coding barrier to entry.
If you’re from a non-technical background, building an MVP, website, or app can feel like an impossible task.
Where do I start?
Do I go down the coding route, and make a fully customisable product? But how do I do that? Should I hire a tech bro to build for me? How much would that cost? Where do I find them?
What if it breaks or if we want to roll out new features, would we have to hire more people?
If I don't go down the coding route, what does that look like? How customisable can I be? How long does it take to learn this?
Yikes. Where do I even begin? There's too many youtube rabbit holes - I just want the basics first.
There are so many questions. And when you do some research you’ll find SO many answers.
But what if you had a guide? What if you had someone who would show you the basics in a tried-and-tested way. Who’s built their own company from the ground-up using no-code tools.
And what if that expert could help answer your specific questions? That way, you wouldn’t have to trawl through a myriad of videos to find the one answer you’re looking for.
We have partnered with Connor Finlayson, founder, solopreneur, YouTuber, and No-Code expert to bring you a 6-week hands-on PRO-gram. (You’ll be a PRO no-coder by the end of this fellowship).
Connor is the founder of the Unicorn Factory, New Zealand’s largest freelance marketplace.
And guess what?
It runs entirely on no-code. Wowza.
If you are seeking to learn the no-code fundamentals and get your MVP up and running, the No-Code Fellowship is for you.
You’ll unlock the power of no-code tools and transform your ideas into reality.
