NOCODE is changing the World
Citizen development is the new frontier for innovation...
The NOCODE revolution has been ongoing for decades. Most people just weren’t aware of it. In one way or another, we have always had people working on tools that allowed you to create software or digital solutions without learning how to code.
Probably the most well-known and certainly the most used of these tools must be WordPress. By allowing a person with absolutely no technical knowledge to set up a website with access control and publish their content without touching a line of code, the World’s leading content management system certainly qualifies as a NOCODE tool.
A few years back, a crop of new tools started to come into the scene, as demand for new digital solutions far surpassed the availability of developers to create them. With the advent of the 2020 pandemic, the need for new digital solutions and tools to help with teams working in a new distributed reality ballooned to unexpected size.
The heightened demand has been a boom to the nascent market for NOCODE tools as more and more people have become aware of their existence. This greater awareness by the general public, in turn, has prompted many existing companies to invest in this market either by developing their NOCODE tools, investing in existing players, or through outright acquisition.
Our work with the BeNOCODER community has cataloged over one hundred and ninety different NOCODE tools. While just a few of these tools garner most of the attention, we believe that it is essential for those looking to start their own business or advance their careers to know just what tools are available.
It is also essential to know what is going on in this new frontier not to miss opportunities. For this reason, we’re launching The NOCODER today. With this newsletter, you will keep up with what is going on in the NOCODE space and discover new opportunities to create digital products and entirely new businesses, all based on NOCODE solutions.

NOCODE Movers & Shakers
A few months ago, we started recording a series of video conversations with some of the people behind the companies helping to push the NOCODE movement forward.
In this first issue of The NOCODER, we share the first episode of this series, a conversation between the two founders of the BeNOCODER community and David Adkin, CEO, and co-founder of Adalo.
Each week we’ll share a new episode, but if you want to indulge in some binge-watching, there are nine episodes available on the BeNOCODER YouTube channel.
