Hey No-Code Champions!

Happy Thursday!

Welcome back to the next chapter of our no-code voyage, a one-of-a-kind expedition with one simple goal: unlocking hidden potential, both personally and professionally ⭐

We’ve made lots of progress so far, but this journey has more than one destination. Ready to see where we go this week? 

No matter what industry you’re in or where you hope to grow, everyone’s welcome to join us as we chart the no-code cosmos!

Put on those learning caps (or, in this case, helmets), and get ready for lift-off 🚀

Up First: a New Way to Source Support

The No-Code Tool of the Week: Backendless

In recent newsletters, we’ve spotlighted platforms that help anyone with any skill set design and publish websites. This week, we’re exploring something a bit different: Backendless, a low-code solution for building, launching, and managing web and mobile applications without any server-side coding.

We wouldn’t recommend this platform for complete beginners, but if you have a decent grasp of no-code 101 and want a multi-faceted app you can scale, customize, and analyze with ease, here’s why you’ll love Backendless:

🧑‍💻Backendless can power complex frontend design, complete with a library of app blueprints and easy API integration 

🧑‍💻Backendless has scalable and lightning-fast backend capacities with streamlined management tools

🧑‍💻Perhaps most importantly, Backendless features a visual real-time database with robust analytics and easy modification capabilities

For these reasons and more, Backendless is a popular choice for startup MVPs and enterprise endeavors that have skilled developers on the team, but don’t have time to spare for manual coding. 

Oh, and as a Backendless user, you’d be joining the ranks of Kellogg’s, Dell, Columbia sportswear, and more. Use our code PROMO15 to get 15% off Backendless.

This nocoder just used imagicaAI to build her first app, which recommends healthy sleep timing, fasting tips, and protein/calorie intake.

This Glide and Airtable user built an app to celebrate his wife’s birthday. Despite its simplicity, he manages to pack in a ton of unique features!

On a recent episode of The Digital Transformation Podcast, Omer Shirazi from EasySend discusses how no-code can optimize customer journeys in the insurance industry.
