Recently I have discovered a new movement and group online called “No code”.
Here is a Wiipedia article on the topic.
I had the realization fairly quickly that I have been one of these “no-coders” for about 14 years now.
Anyhow, its pretty exciting as you might imagine to learn there are new groups of like minded people and organisations out there.
I’ve dove straight in signing up to a few courses and subscribing to things in a bit of a manic fashion.
Anyway, I digress.
I think this No-code movement is a good opportunity for Maid and the Network.
This community of no-coders is basically at the baby steps point. I think it only just came out as a new thing in the coding and web development world in about 2018 with the movement beginning to really grow in popularity it seems this year.
Bit about me and why it’s important; i’ve made stuff for the web for about 14 years now and I have ALWAYS done it with this no-code philosophy before I even knew it was a thing.
I’ve built and developed probably more than a dozen websites, a few are still lingering around somewhere on the web. Why I chose the no-code route? It’s probably not something I consciously chose. Wait actually I lie. I went that route because of two reasons; 1 my brain just does not function like a coders, believe me I have tried, I’ve never been that good at math either (connection?) and 2, I suppose I am more of a BIG Picture, ideas guy. I suppose you could call me an entrepreneur.
Now why this is important: What Maid has been doing excites me for several reasons. I am somewhat of a private person, or at least I value privacy, I like decentralised things, I dislike BIG governments, I am a fan of technology, new technology, I consider myself a bit of an early adopter and I’m a sucker for futuristic optimism. However, I’ve never really felt like I could contribute in much of a way other than to write the odd article, because well I am not a coder.
This new no-code movement changes all that or at least it offers the opportunity to change all that and offers me and the network potential.
What would happen to this network if we attracted a bunch of non-traditional type people that could build new and exciting things, they just needed the right tools? Go a step further, what if we aligned ourselves to this new movement?
The future is exciting.
Great things come from times of great change.
