Makerpad profiles - (like GitHub for no-coders)

Ben Tossell @bentossell

All built without code of course!

What a GitHub profile is to a developer, Makerpad profiles are for no-coders.

  • browse users
  • submit posts + categorise
  • say which Tools you use
  • say what you've built (marketplaces, workflows etc)

If you want to request a profile invite: https://forum.makerpad.co/t/makerpad-profiles/109

Here's the announcement: https://twitter.com/bentossell/status/1217830213230514177

    • Hire expensive developers

    As a developer, I'm a little offended.

    Just kidding, I actually really like the idea. I've been a developer for most of my life. I hang out with other developers and the truth is, we kinda forget sometimes that most people on the planet don't know how to code. Amazing work my friend.

    Hi, good day to you Ben .

    This is a really good idea. Those who have less or no knowledge of programming language will benefit from it.

    Do you have a free plan, cause some users to want to try it out before they make a purchase, I feel like you should plan for something like freemium.

    But it's one of the best things anyway, and I can see that this new platform is going to be a success.

      We have tons of free content on the site already. We've played around with lots of pricing plans and the current one works for us.

      The difficulty with a free platform is having people who may not be your best user so we focus on getting the right people at the right time.

        Oh, yeah, that's right. This way, you're going to have those people on your website who are really looking for services.

          I don't know if I'm right! But it's what we've seen so it's currently what we're doing.
