Most people think in order to build software you have to be technical. You have to know how to write computer code and be able to explain what the “cloud” is to your grandmother who still uses a rotary phone. Thankfully that’s no longer true. Now, you only need to be technical-enough. “No code” tools are an abstraction above code. You use visual building blocks and the tools write the code for you. Instead of needing to learn how to write code (or what the cloud really is) all you need to do is learn how to use those building blocks. It’s not completely fool-proof but if you’ve done things like set up filters in your Gmail inbox or know you’re way around Excel then you’re probably technical-enough. Building software no longer takes months and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Being technical-enough is good-enough.
