Why is no-code and low-code growing in popularity?

While the concept of building software without needing to know how to code has been around for many years (Visual Programming, for example), it's only in the last few years with the rise of companies like Webflow, Bubble, Retool, Airtable, Appian, and Quickbase, that the LCNC space has gone mainstream only in the last few years with the rise of companies like Webflow, Bubble, Retool, Airtable, Appian, and Quickbase. that really started to hit the mainstream.

There are a few reasons for this growth in the low-code and no-code space:

  • The cost of building software has come down dramatically. In the past, you needed to hire expensive developers and designers to create anything beyond a basic website or app. With LCNC platforms, you can build sophisticated internal and external applications for a fraction of the cost by using off-the-shelf tools and database or API connections.
  • The barriers to entry are much lower. Previously, if you wanted to build a website or an app, you needed to learn how to code or hire someone who could code. With LCNC platforms, you can build sophisticated applications with no coding skills whatsoever.

The ease of use has increased dramatically. Building software used to be a complex and tedious process. With LCNC platforms, you can build sophisticated applications with drag-and-drop simplicity. It's now possible to rapidly build and test MVP (Minimum Viable Product) level software to validate ideas before investing in more complex efforts.
