Today’s duel in the ring:

No code vs. low code platform!

After the low code platform has become more and more popular with companies and developers, a new word is now appearing in the scene. No code applications. What is behind this term? And is it different from the previous low-code models?

The boxring bell rings

In one corner: No Code and in the other corner: Low Code

After the first rounds there is no clear winner and the spectators do not get an overview of what the two opponents really are. For the time being, both have tactical features and seem to have the same goal.

Perhaps more can be learned by direct comparison:

Low Code
No Code
Main user group Developer and Power-User Standard users
Main goal Acceleration of development, savings of time & resources Simple operation, easy adaptation of certain structures
Code required As required No code required
Customisability Fully customizable Prefabricated templates can be easily adapted
Type of applications Individual and complex applications Simple applications


The exchange of blows is over – the referees agree and clarify:

Although no code and low code models are used in different ways in a company – the mission of both is the same: to improve the creation of business applications and provide the freedom to quickly implement individual requirements. Without long communication channels and know how transfer.

It’s not so much about including code in some places or not, but rather what kind of people use the platform to build or customize the applications.

This gives non-traditional developers the opportunity to make their own adjustments and to integrate themselves into the ranks of professional developers to a certain extent to the benefit of the entire company.

In summary, no one emerges from the ring as the clear winner – no-code applications are a further development based on the principle of low code platforms. Developers can build custom applications based on the low-code model that end users can use as a no code platform. They can then adapt certain functions and structures as required, without having to involve IT or development specialists.
