HIDE TRANSCRIPT

Hello, my name is Kamil Tarczyński and welcome to another episode of our podcast Just No Code. Today, we're going to talk a bit about where to get knowledge and where to look for information about this whole no-code thing, about how to become a no-code developer, etc.

Basics of No-Code

Before we go into where exactly to look for knowledge, I'd like to say a few words about what is needed for learning no-code in the first place. Then we'll discuss a bit why it's worth learning no-code or low-code at all. Later, we'll talk about the sources of this knowledge.

What is Needed for Learning?

At the beginning of learning, what is needed? To become a no-code developer, let's maybe separate these two roles at the outset. This is something I talked about in one of our podcast episodes "Who is a no-code developer?" you'll find the link to it here at the top. You can listen to that episode. In that episode, I talked about the division of roles into a no-code developer and a citizen developer, so I won't dwell on this topic too much here. I'll just briefly say that, in our opinion, a no-code developer is rather someone who has technical knowledge, has already programmed, etc., knows all these technological nuances.

Why is it Worth Learning No-Code?

But why is it worth learning no-code at all? It's worth it because large agencies, such as Gartner or large companies like Microsoft, predict that no-code will simply eat the world. And what does that mean? It means, for example, Gartner says that next year, in 2024, as much as 65% of applications worldwide will be created using no-code, low-code. 450 million applications out of 500 million that will be created will be made using no-code, these are gigantic numbers that show a trend that programming will be going towards this optimization of software creation, because, of course, ordinary developers, traditional developers will still be needed, will still have jobs, and no-code is not intended to replace them in any way, it's intended to... speed up this work, automate, streamline in many aspects. Therefore, in my opinion, it's worth learning because companies will increasingly require such skills. Companies will also want to build such competencies internally, so in my opinion, the early bird catches the worm.

Sources of Knowledge on No-Code

So now, where to get knowledge about no-code? As you know, generally in the tech world, or generally in the world, there is no shortage of sources of knowledge. The problem, of course, is that this knowledge is very fragmented, scattered in different... let's say, depths of the internet, and it's very hard to simply acquire it. We'll make your job a bit easier today, because in addition to telling you where to look for it and discussing these sources a bit, we'll also add links to these sources so you can refer to them. Of course, I won't talk about individual channels, forums, providers, academies, etc., because the episode would be very long and not very informative. You will find all these links to such sources in the description of this video. Today, I will just mention where to look for this knowledge best.

YouTube and Other Sources

And the first such source, of course, will be YouTube. On YouTube, you'll find a multitude of podcasts, for example, our Podcast, or other podcasts, or other instructional videos from other creators, mostly in English, through which you can start building your knowledge around different platforms. And precisely, different platforms, because this knowledge is also fragmented, and very often people who run a channel on No Code or anything else do not provide one, systematized source of knowledge that leads you by the hand from A to Z on a given platform. Instead, they make inserts about different platforms, different possibilities, different functionalities. Of course, they probably make playlists from it, etc., it varies, so here you need a bit of patience to find what interests us. The plus, however, is that YouTube has a good search engine. If you're looking for a solution to a specific problem on a specific platform, you'll find such a source. Another place, of course, where you can look for knowledge are various blogs.

Blogs, Newsletters, and Academies

Blogs are obviously a bit harder to find, but they exist on the internet, various diverse blogs, you will also find links to them in the description of this video where we have this knowledge more descriptively, sometimes more meticulously given, or maybe given in written form. Some prefer video, others prefer written form, so here blogs. Plus newsletters - several creators also run their newsletters or their academies, where in my opinion, some of the best sources can be the academies of the platforms themselves. Like Bubble or Xano run academies, or Flutter Flow also has one, or Webflow has its academy, its university, through which you can learn the platform from A to Z.

No-Code Platform Academies

This knowledge is usually much more structured there, guiding you step by step, deeper and deeper, starting from really very basic things, plus you have referrals to the documentation. So, you have the whole source of knowledge, a real source source, of basic knowledge about the given platform. The downside, of course, is that the platform shows you, usually, these universities show you how to use them, but they don't show how to solve certain problems because you're unlikely to encounter those problems there and you'll probably be looking for the solutions to those problems on YouTube. However, the Academies of Bubble, Xano, Webflow are really very rich sources of knowledge that will help you gain that skill, go through that first path, obstacles, to simply start building something.

No-Code Forums and Communities

Additionally, we have forums and communities, including our group No-code Polska on Facebook, where a huge number of people share their knowledge or solutions to various problems, or for example, you can also find people there who can help you solve your problems based on some commission. The best example here is the Bubble forum, Xano forum, Webflow forum, where there is a gigantic community of people, solutions, plugins for those solutions, etc. Where really almost every problem that appears to you, maybe not every one, but surely most of them, you can find a solution, help make some commission, or anything else. So there is really a wealth of knowledge.

Books on the Bubble Platform

Here at the end, I would also like to mention, if anyone of you is interested in developing towards the Bubble platform, to mention two great books that were written by Petter Amlie. These are two books called The Ultimate Guide to Bubble Performance and The Ultimate Guide to Bubble Security. These are really two great positions worth getting to know if we want to become experts on the Bubble.io platform.

Summary

So, as you can see, there are really many sources, they can be found in various places, they will have different quality, but they will also meet our various needs. So I hope this material was helpful for you. Until next time, bye!
