Understanding the No-Code Revolution



No-Code tools are all the rage these days. It seems like every day a new â€"no-code” platform emerges to help people unleash their creativity. Similar to how computers have democratized our software usage and the cloud has impacted our deployment of software, no-code is supposed to democratize any technical skill sets.

It aims to reduce any complexity and workflow of tech-savvy processes, thereby touching every user across the enterprise. But what exactly is no-code and how does one learn to build products without code?

We’re bringing together experts from 3 of the leading companies enabling the No-Code/Low-Code revolution. You’ll leave the conversation with an understanding of:

-the landscape: what makes a tool â€"no-code/low-code”, and who are some of the key players for building applications and workflows?
-the benefits: what makes no-code accessible to technical and non-technical creators, and how can you best utilize these tools?
-the future: where is no-code going? what's the next frontier for no-code tools? which use cases are the most promising?
