What does “no-code” mean, anyway?

.

Though still a new term to many of us, the no-code phenomenon is everywhere. Laymen, civilians, and folks across industries find themselves asking, “What do they mean by no-code?” If you look it up, you might find a definition that reads something like this: “No-code technology allows users to develop rapid solutions which transform business processes and meet customer needs.” Um, it does what, now? Explain this to me in English, please.

.

Maybe this will help.

Consider a common scenario from twenty years ago: you hear a friend proudly proclaim they had built their own website. You think, “Hm, I didn’t know so and so could speak Java,” and of course, they couldn’t. They had merely taken advantage of early, first-generation website design programs like Dreamweaver or FrontPage. The end-result looked almost like the output of a professional, at least it did for the standard of the early 2000s.

.

The current “no-code” era is just progression of this same thing: designing applications to be do-it-yourself for the non-technically inclined masses. Dreamweaver and FrontPage were some of the first no-code programs in the mainstream. Modern no-code applications have the same pieces: drag-and-drop, clicking, drop-down-menus and template choices allowing users to create something which previously required a programmer fluent in HTML. Real world applications of no-code are all around us. You can create your own virtual storefront with Shopify or design an internal company web-app with Budibase. Today’s DIY, non-coding website designers use tools with late-generation sophistication like WordPress and Carrd.
