What is No-Code?
No-code frameworks are software design systems that allow even non-technical people to execute software without composing a line of code.
These tools usually have a user-friendly interface and drag-and-drop capabilities, allowing you to envision the implementation process and describe the overall business logic with ease.
A no-code framework is a programming platform that uses a visual development interface to enable non-technical users to build applications by dragging and dropping software components to create a full app. Users don’t need any previous coding experience to build applications using no-code.

Users don’t need any previous coding experience to build applications using no-code. It seems to be too amazing to be real. Non-technical enterprise consumers were developing full-fledged apps! Nice messaging, but isn’t it true that it doesn’t succeed in practice?
To build something remotely similar to a functional program, you’ll need talented coders. Low-code, on the other hand, isn’t just a concept; it’s a fact. It’s transforming the market right now, which is why it’s getting so much coverage.
How Low-Code is different from No-Code?
While low-code production systems have been around for over a decade in their present form, they have existed in theory for much longer. If you come from an IT environment, you’ve probably come across low-code in one way or another—either as a 4th/5th generation high-level programming language like Perl, Python, or SQL, or as a derivative of software development.
Internal/capability-level abstractions, logical/behavior-level abstractions, and external/user-level abstractions are common in low-code/no-code creation. It’s helpful to provide a quick overview of both because they’re important points of distinction between Low Code and No-Code platforms.
Top No-Code platforms
There are plenty of No-Code platforms on the market. We have selected the best No-Code platforms on the market today, of which I am a member:
What is the future of No-Code development?
At the time of this article's publication, the future of No-Code development is bright, as demand from LOB professionals exceeds the capacity of IT departments to develop and maintain applications. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbated this gap as IT help desks strive to support remote workforces. Gartner predicts that 65% of all app development will be low-code by 2024 - and that citizen developers will outnumber enterprise developers by at least four to one by 2023.
