Code vs No-Code is a complex topic in current software development. And as usual, there are no simple answers. It all depends on the context.
We explored many different approaches to see when to use no-code tools. And also when not since the tradeoffs might be huge. We learned that no-code is a no-brainer for validation and MVP building if you are a solo non-technical founder. It's also handy when you want to do something outside of the core competency of your company and you don't want to spend your development budget on these efforts. Let's say connecting your product to some analytics or building an MVP to validate a new direction of your company.
But if your entire software business is based on no-code you need to make sure that it can be built with it. You'll have to adjust your product expectations to fit the 'green path' that the no-code tools provide.
On the other hand, we have heard many success stories from founders who got to tens of thousands of MRR with just no-code tools. If some of you are here let's open a discussion.
I am very interested in hearing your war stories. Were you able to develop features at the pace you wanted? Do you regret picking no-code? Do you still need a development team once you have some scale?
