No-code is exactly what it claims to be: a development approach for
people with absolutely no coding experience. It goes beyond simply
providing shortcuts, and instead uses declarative programming to build
applications based on user inputs. In other words, no-code development
allows you to skip coding entirely, telling the system what you need,
and then allowing the system to build the application itself.
Like low-code, a no-code platform will likely also include pre-built
functionality in the form of drag-and-drop tools and a highly-visual,
user-friendly interface, but the major difference is that it allows
users to build apps from start to finish, without ever having to
implement a single line of code. No-code is all about the citizen
developer being able to create simple but effective apps on their own to
automate more of the business. No-code is about configuration over
Essentially, low-code targets developers, while no-code targets business users.
