How To Use No-Code Solutions To Build Your Company

I’m building a startup with no code, and I’ve gotten pretty far

Three basic types and three general use-case families for no-code

There are three broad types of no-code solutions and three basic ways any of those solutions can be used. You can mix and match, and sure, there are outlier types and use cases, but these are the most general.

Use Case 1: Building your company with no-code

I started building Teaching Startup nine months ago. A month into it, I decided to build it without writing any code. And again, I can code, but I have a million other things to do.

Use Case 2: No code and MVP

The reason it took me a month to decide to build a company without any code is because I originally intended to just build my Minimum Viable Product without any code. Once the MVP was finished, I realized that if I replaced the no-code solutions, I’d be replacing wheels that didn’t need replacing.

Use Case 3: No code and product

The next steps for me will be to build all the extra functionality I want to build into something more than an email, which is already starting to bend under the weight of the functionality I’ve already thrown on top of it.

Epilogue: No code vs product overload

I get this question a lot: Will the no-code trend produce an overload of crap products once anyone can build and deploy one?
