Virtually anything you can do with conventional code, we can do too!
As non-technical, female founders of a mission-driven organization, we got a lot of feedback that our idea was nice but we needed to get a technical co-founder on board to be taken seriously. What AirDev has been able to accomplish in just a week is totally astounding and fits our needs perfectly.

Working with Airdev was key to our strategy of building out a marketplace for kids activities. What would have once taken 6 months to build, we managed to get to market in 6 weeks. Airdev were very responsive and able to work through complicated challenges in a simplified way.

HOW WE FIT IN
The holy grail is to build anything imaginable without writing a single line of code. No matter what the marketing material says, that’s not possible.
Using our Canvas design framework with your custom branding, you can achieve a modern and intuitive experience for your users.
MORE FROM AIRDEV
We built NotRealTwitter as a fun demo, but what does it mean for the future of software development? Can real Twitter actually be built without code?
As we look back at software development in 2020, the simplest way to describe the biggest change we saw is that no-code really heated up last year.
How is the price determined?
The price to build your marketplace will depend on how long it takes us to build it, which in turn depends on how complex your marketplace is. We generally recommend starting with the simplest version you can and then adding more complex functionality as needed.
What other costs are involved?
Besides our development costs other costs include hosting on Bubble (see their pricing here) and any paid integrations that need to be used in your marketplace (for features like payments, SMS notifications, etc.).
What are the limitations of this approach?
There are very few limitations because we are able to implement practically any functionality, either directly in Bubble or through an external integration. The biggest limitation is with native mobile (iOS/Android) apps - we can't use all of the phone's native functionality, such as Bluetooth access, accelerometer, or offline mode.
Why is this so much cheaper than conventional development?
We are able to build marketplaces much faster by using the no-code framework Bubble and by using a modular development process. A key concept is that most marketplaces have a lot of common functionality and UI, so we can achieve drastically faster turnarounds by standardizing that functionality.
Is this better than coding my marketplace?
We think so. Building an online marketplace isn't actually technically complex, it's been done thousands of times before. That's why it makes sense to use proven tech to build it instead of coding everything from scratch.
Is this better than a SaaS tool like Sharetribe?
That depends. SaaS products like Sharetribe are great if you want to use exactly the features that they offer. However, if you need something custom, this is better because we have the flexibility to add or modify any functionality or design aspects of your marketplace.
