No-Code Technologies and Development

Our guest Jen Kramer joins our hosts Dave Erickson, Iman Kaur and Botond Seres for an informative and exciting deep dive into the world of No-Code Technologies and Development. In this month's ScreamingBox Technology and Business Rundown Podcast, we ask Jen what she means by teaching about building “Quality Websites”? What does she mean by that and how does No-Code fit into that teaching? In the past No-Code elements were not very flexible or customizable, has that changed recently? How do developers add customization to No-Code projects? How has No-Code developed in the last few years? Should you use a design tool like Figma first, or should you design right in the No-code platform like Webflow? What does she see for the future of No-Code platforms and as a business direction for developers and agencies?

No-code development is a type of web development that allows non-programmers and programmers to create software using a graphical user interface, instead of writing code.

For over 20 years, Jen Kramer has been teaching & practicing web design, No-Code and Low-Code technologies and the meaning of “quality websites”. 

She has taught web design, educational technology, and storytelling principles to students from Harvard University and other academic institutions, as well as teaching in workshops and corporate environments. She recently gave a great talk at The No-Code Conference 2021.

She is a published author with her most recent book is “Before You Code: Validate Your Idea, Build a Better Product, and Plan Your Way to Success”, co-authored with Heather O’Neill. Her previous books include Joomla Start to Finish (2010) and Joomla 24-Hour Trainer (2011).

Jen earned a Bachelor's degree in biology at the University of North Carolina. And she got a Master's degree in Internet Strategy Management at the Marlboro College Graduate School, and a graduate certificate in Learning Design and Technology from Harvard University Extension School.

In this month's ScreamingBox Technology and Business Rundown podcast, we ask Jen what she means by teaching about building “Quality Websites”? What does she mean by that and how does No-Code fit into that teaching?

We also asked about how in the past No-Code elements were not very flexible or customizable, has that changed recently? How do developers add customization to No-Code projects? How has No-Code developed in the last few years?

Other questions we interrogated our guest with were should you use a design tool like Figma first, or should you design right in the No-code platform like Webflow? What does she see for the future of No-Code platforms and as a business direction for developers and agencies?

Laugh, cry and shake your head with our hosts and our special guest, as they try to define what are No-Code and Low-Code technologies, and just how businesses and development agencies apply them for lower cost coding.
