Would you like to be able to build an entire online product, but feel you don’t have the necessary know-how or coding experience? If you would then this workshop will provide you with an eye-opening guide to ‘no-code’ systems, which can get you started straight away, whatever your technical abilities.

The ‘no-code’ movement is gathering pace and this action planning workshop will show you how it’s now possible to build an entire online channel without writing a single line of code. It’s easy to start and choosing and connecting a set of pre-built services together to create a new digital product or service is a great way to launch a business or side project.

There are literally thousands of services available and the possibilities are endless and this workshop will take you through the case studies of some of the most successful ‘no-code’ products. We’ll take you through the entire process - from planning a system, through to selecting the right tools and finally showing you a live demonstration of a full system being built in real-time.

Who should attend this workshop?

This workshop is perfect for any individual or business that has either already started developing, or is thinking of launching a digital product or service. You don’t need any technical knowledge to attend, making it accessible to anyone who’d like to learn more.

Please note that this workshop is open to trading SMEs based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Businesses located outside of this area will be unable to attend and instead directed to alternative support.

What will we cover?

  • Understanding what a ‘no-code’ product or service is including, a look at its background, the movement and some success stories. 

  • Planning a digital product or service and validating your idea before you start to create your product/service. 

  • Selecting the right platform/integration, evaluating the options and choosing the best solution for you. 

  • Building your product or service, connecting services and systems together and making a product or service without writing a single line of code.

What outcomes can you expect from joining us?

  • A deeper understanding of the possibilities ‘no-code’ presents. 

  • An insight into what’s achievable when it comes to designing and developing products, without any technical knowledge.
