What is Low code?
Low code is a software development method that requires little or no coding to create applications and processes. Instead of using complex programming languages, you can use visual interfaces with basic logic and drag-and-drop capabilities in a low-code development environment. Users without advanced knowledge of coding or software creation can use these intuitive techniques to create software for a variety of purposes, including mobile and business applications.
What is No code?
No-code is a programming platform that uses a visual development interface that allows non-technical users to create applications by dragging and dropping software components to create a complete application. Users need no prior coding experience to create apps without code.
What are low code and no code platforms?
Low-code and no-code are powerful application development methods that allow people with little or no coding knowledge to build and deploy applications faster. Both low-code and no-code are designed to allow non-technical users to build custom solutions, freeing up technical resources for more complex projects. Codeless platforms are the simpler of the two. You can develop basic but functional applications using a visual, drag-and-drop, no-code architecture. You probably won’t be able to modify legacy systems here or speed it up very efficiently, and the integration options are limited. Rather, this style of development is best suited to helping teams with specific requirements of limited scope.
The advantages of convenience and simplicity of codeless platforms are also their disadvantages. The ability to change it is limited to nothing, as much of its architecture is created by its creators.
Why have codeless systems been able to get so far with so few features? That’s because they’re easy to use even if you don’t have any coding experience or skills, especially if you don’t want to (or just can’t) wait for your internal IT staff to build something for you.
low-code solutions, on the other hand, are more adaptable – sort of halfway between no-code and full human coding. Low-code systems, like their no-code counterparts, can be graphical with drag-and-drop capabilities. They are also open, extensible, and allow coding or programming, giving designers the best of both worlds, where the speed of development can be accelerated without having to constantly duplicate core code. Low-code platforms also offer scalable models, open APIs for renewables, and flexibility in the cloud or on-premises.
