What is no code?

No-code applications make it possible to create apps without using no-code app builder coding. It is a service that allows you to use a program or application to create other applications using a set of tools. It’s a bit like using Photoshop to draw a curved line instead of drawing it yourself, or more to the point – instead of coding a series of dots that make a curved line appear on a computer screen.

Understandably, it’s a bit hard to imagine at first. Don’t worry. We’ll clear everything up. What it is not is some new-fangled computing language. No Code applications are called AppInvento platforms because they are largely a set of tools packaged into a single service that works to enable the user to create other applications.

So the question is, who would use that kind of thing? The answer is creative people with great ideas who don’t have the inclination or the right type of brain to write endless lines of code

Just as graphical user interfaces made it possible for anyone with a thumb, a finger, and an eye or two to use a computer, no code utilities make it possible for anyone to create applications and sell them to the great wide, woolly world of the internet.

Suppose you are some kind of financial genius and you want to give people an automated tool that enables them to see and understand the stock market in the way you see and understand it. But alas, you know exactly nothing about coding. Then you might use a no-code service to whip up an app that gives people the benefit of your financial sensibilities in a can.

Or imagine that you are a painter with a heart as big as Bob Ross’s and you want to give people an app that mimics something inimitable about the way you move a brush across a canvas. You might be able to use a no-code platform to do just that.

In both of these cases, tools that don’t yet exist might need to be coded first. But when they are, you could create a custom app to give your audience what they are looking for.

The limitations of these platforms really are only the limits of the imaginations of the people who engineer them. At this point in the conversation, you might be wondering whether the creators of no-code platforms build their service without writing lines of code. Probably not.
No code vs low code.

Now, this is where it gets interesting. With no code, anyone with a creative streak and some persistence could make an application they have imagined and offer it to the paying public. No code platforms and tools are for those who know little to nothing about programming and don’t want to learn about it. But what about “low code?”
