NoCode@Digitwell provides practical help, support & guidance to business owners and entrepreneurs who want to develop their own app through the use of NoCode / LowCode platforms.
NoCode is a simpler form of development. Instead of using a computer language such as Python or Java to write a list of instructions, you build the app by selecting from a range of components and linking them together, usually using a graphical tool of some sort. All of the complexity is hidden; issues around storage, scalability, security is handled in the background. Changes to the UI, the look and feel, can be made to personalise the finished product but only in the ways proscribed by the service and the components.
NoCode solutions are very varied, WordPress, which this website has been developed in, is considered to be a NoCode solution – you can build quite complicated websites by just adding and configuring various plugins.
LowCode as its name suggests does not remove the need for writing computer code, but it is much reduced. They usually provide a graphical tool which operates in the same way as a NoCode environment., but they then provide you with the ability to add/modify behaviour through additional scripts. Some even allow you to develop new components to add functionality which is not available out of the box.
