About the course
Whether you're an entrepreneur with the next big idea or you're faced with inefficient processes and systems in a larger organization, chances are you’d prefer not to have to find, hire, and pay a software developer to help you realize your dreams. But what if you could build a fully functional marketplace like Airbnb without writing a single line of code? With the ever-growing number of no-code tools, it has never been easier to build web applications and mobile apps, and to configure backend data processes. This hands-on course will introduce the range of problems that can be solved with no-code platforms. We will explore how to store and access dynamic data in user-friendly tools like Airtable and Google Sheets, how to design beautiful interfaces with app builders such as Glide and Webflow, and how to connect a virtually endless list of powerful tools on automation platforms, including Zapier and Parabola. Students will have the option of focusing on one of several projects that best fits their needs and interests. Guest speakers from industry will give perspective on where the no-code movement is headed next. Students will come away knowing how to take the digital means of production into their own hands in order to quickly build the tools they need, rapidly iterate their ideas, and find product/market fit with users.
