What is HTML All The Things

HTML All The Things is a web development podcast and discord community which was started by Matt and Mike, developers based in Ontario, Canada.

The podcast speaks to web development topics as well as running a small business, self-employment, and time management. You can join them for both their successes and their struggles as they try to manage to expand their Web Development business without stretching themselves too thin.

What's This One About?

In this episode Matt and Mike discuss a recent trend in the industry, no-code tools. While no-code tools may seem like they're only for non-programmers, they can be extremely useful for teams of all sizes. No-code tools can help small teams take on more work without the need to scale up, while non-tech savvy folks can try out their ideas for apps and websites which may eventually become something more down the road.
