All right guys, so before we get started
into building our landing page I wanna
talk about the NoCode movement, what
is this mean? what's the difference?
how would this affect developers, right?
First, let's understand the NoCode movement.
The reason why is called the NoCode
movement is because of the idea that we
can easily take an idea from the ideation
phase in any business and quickly deploy it
on the market, and so there is this awesome
tools that came out that started to change
the game in making that posible, one of
those tools of course is Webflow, but it's
not the only tool that is out there.
So let's take a look at some of the
platforms and solutions that are
right now on the market that help
us develop these solutions much faster.
#1 of course is Webflow, I personally love
this tool, coming from a +15 years
experience coding websites I really wish
this tool existed way long ago. Webflow
allows developers like myself to build out
these landing pages so much faster than
having to start out from a clean slate right?
So, let's take a look at some of the other
tools out there, like for example Shopify.
Shopify is a tool that allows you to
create stores really quickly, you can
start selling any products, any service
and it would guide you through a process
of creating all that you need to start
So, as we can see here Bubble is one
of the most powerful NoCode platforms,
go check it out it's incredibly cool, but
there is a little bit of a learning curve
just to understand how you get to start
from a prototype into iterating into like
actually launching it. It's more about
logistics and finding the algorithm and
how you go from step 1 to step 3.
Another one you should check out it's
makerpad.co the community itself allows
you to learn and build all the projects
without writing any code so they also
have some partners including Webflow,
Zapier and Airtable. So this is kind of
like a market place where you can actually
look at some of the featured tools that
they have specifically for NoCode, so if
you are looking for a specific thing that
you need to build you can come here
into the marketplace and start checking
out some of the things that you could use,
apply those tools into your Webflow or
Bubble app and then start integrating
each other with the API, it's a pretty cool
marketplace, I really recommend you guys
start kind of bookmarking these links,
because that's exactly what the NoCode
movement is, is the idea of connecting
things with all these different tools in
order for you to accomplish your goal
either being a business or an app that
you or your team need to launch.
A couple of other tools that are very
known on the market right now of
course is Squarespace, they have an
interesting tool that allows you to build
websites fairly quickly but they use
templates of course, it kind of limits
you into what they have already in their
templates directory, so you kind of have
to play around with of elements and
skinning things, so that's something that
if you really think that will help your
client or yourself that you don't wanna
kind of fiddle with the technical part
I recommend you go and them out.
And finally another one coming from
Wix.com is Editor X, this one I have not
personally tried it, I have had bad
experience with Wix.com before but
It looks promising, it looks like they
have a lot of similarities with Webflow
and how you can build a site fairly
quickly, giving you some more power
Learning Webflow is actually pretty
easy if you just check out their videos
and tutorials on their website you can
start kind of getting the basics of how
to utilize Webflow, but I personally felt
like I wanted to take out a course that
would take you on a journey of building
out an entire landing page with advance,
a little bit more advance interactions
and it followed kind of the pathway
from design in Figma and transforming
it into something actual functional
where you can actually click through,
see the animation and launch it live.
So, let's jump in into our next lesson so
we can take a look at how we could start
setting up our project.
All right guys I'll see you there!
