Why and Why Not use No-Code?

As my no-code blog just blasted off, here's another. So, in this blog, I will tell some reason to use and some reason to not use no-code.

What is No-Code?

A no code development platform is a tool for building software applications without coding. No-Code is made for people in every background to create stuff/software. No code platforms have pre-built drag-and-drop elements that have been coded for reuse and scale, so that anyone, even beginners can make anything they want easily.

How does it even works?

As told above, no code tools already got drag-and-drop elements which you can use to create your website. You can then easily see, how will it look in desktop, tablet, phone.

When you build on a no code platform, you are building with code, you simply don’t have to do any coding, as those drag-and-drop elements ( and the whole software ) is build using code.

Following me on twitter helps me a lot so consider following

Why use no code?

Okay so lets now come to the point, why we should use no code?

Faster Development

Most development is done via a drag-and-drop interface, so this means building something will be a lot faster than using code.

Low Cost

Developers are expensive, using no code tools will let you reduce it. You can build apps faster and cheaper.

Increased Productivity

As the building time of something is way less than using code, it simply means that the thing that was being done in months can now be done in days.

There are many more reasons to use no code, but for this blog, its enough.

Why not use no code?

okay so as I told you the pros of no code lets come to cons of no code.

One of the most common problem with no code is for more complex use cases, they are too restrictive to produce the desired results. The drag-and-drop elements are inherently more restrictive than the underlying code.

Users must have a clear understanding of their requirements.

while using no code platforms a user first need to thing that if the requirements can be fulfilled by that specific tool?

Extensive Training Required

As no code tools make development faster, you need extensive training before. Some no code tools are a lot too harder to understand

There are yet many many other way that stops you from using no code.

Thanks for reading this blog. Cheers
