Okay, so what is the verdict on no-code tools?

  • SaaS tools like Mailchimp or Salesforce CRM are used out of the box to perform specific and independent tasks, ones that can be carried out without reliance on external apps.
  • Developer tools like Stripe or Algolia are used to expand the functionality of other apps without writing additional code.
  • Visual Development tools like Bubble, Webflow, Zapier, Integromat, Airtable, Notion, Coda, and others are used to build stuff that one could only build by writing, hosting, and maintaining a whole lot of code in the absence of these tools.
