THE NO-CODE REVOLUTION

What is no-code?

Software is traditionally created by "coders", people who are fluent in programming languages that computers understand. Because these languages are optimized for machines (not humans), most people don't understand them and are excluded from the creation process.

No-code platforms allow someone to create software through more intuitive visual interfaces. The tool translates your drag-and-drop instructions into code behind the scenes, so it can be read by browsers like any other program.

No-code tools make software development faster (by replacing writing with clicking), more stable (by optimizing technical infrastructure centrally), and more accessible (by eliminating the need for coding skills). Given this immense potential, no-code has become the hottest category in the tech space.

Your user experience can be tailored to fit any setting or function.

NO-CODE AND TECH INCLUSION

Why does it matter?

The rise of no-code software development is more than a technological innovation like drones or AI. It represents an opportunity to make tech more accessible to a more diverse set of innovators, builders, and end users.

New innovations

Because creating software is expensive, products typically target solving problems with big and wealthy audiences. By lowering the barriers to creating custom tools, no-code can not only make existing projects faster and cheaper, but also bring new concepts to life to serve small niches and diverse user bases.

New entrepreneurs

Starting a tech company today requires teams of highly-specialized developers, making it expensive and inaccessible to all but the most connected or wealthy. No-code promises to help validate and scale ideas brought by entrepreneurs from a wide array of backgrounds, by lowering the financial and technical barriers to creating software.

New labor force

Despite more than 1 million vacant programmer jobs today, the barriers to learning to code lock out many from a career in tech. Coding bootcamps routinely charge upward of $40k for a baseline training. No-code tools dramatically alter the landscape for learning and earning, offering a unique opportunity to change the face of tech.

HOW WE FIT IN

The human movement in no-code

Every new technological breakthrough requires a corresponding human movement to make it stick. This can be a chicken-and-egg problem: Apple needs developers to build on iOS in order to attract iPhone customers, and iPhone customers to attract developers. At Airdev, we aim to drive the adoption of no-code by building an unbeatable global talent pool of builders, and connecting them to client projects.
