What is No-Code?

No-code is an approach to the application development process that enables users to create application functionality without writing code in a programming language. Typically, a no-code framework allows users to specify the application design and workflow through linking building blocks in a graphical user interface and to select the implementation details and connections through a menu-driven interface. No-code platforms tend to be built on a model-driven architecture and use a declarative approach for writing simplified functions and expressions. No-code environments target business users or analysts with less programming experience but with the domain knowledge to create or modify a workflow, but also allow more experienced programmers to make simple changes faster than modifying code.

No-code development enables a much broader audience of users to participate in developing application functionality by reducing the programming skills required and making the design process more visual and intuitive. No-code development can significantly accelerate the time required to deploy new functionality. Users without programming skills can make adjustments to existing programs using menu-driven parameters.
