In the heart of Paris, Thunkable had the privilege of being part of the NoCode Summit — an event that brought together the brightest minds and the most passionate creators in the no code universe. The energy was electric, and the ideas were limitless.
I’d like to share some key takeaways that left us buzzing with inspiration.
1. No Code is Not Just a Trend, It's a Revolution
Building your own technology is incredibly empowering. The journey that led me to the helm of Thunkable, a powerful drag and drop app builder, began with an idea. The idea was that technology, once reserved for the elite few, should be accessible to all. And that was highlighted at this summit.
An international conference of this scale goes to show that low code no code platforms are not a fad or some kind of “fringe” technology. No code isn't just a passing trend. It's a full-blown revolution. From budding entrepreneurs to innovative businesses, everyone is jumping on board to leverage the power of no code. It's democratizing technology, allowing the person with the idea to be the person building the app. App creation is no longer the exclusive domain of experienced software developers. Now, all you need is an idea, basic logic concepts, and the right platform.
2. No Code + AI = Unlimited Possibilities
The main theme of the NoCode Summit was exploring the intersection of AI and no code technology. The fusion of no code with AI is where the magic truly happens. No code platforms — supercharged by AI — empower creators, inventors, and business leaders to break barriers and bottlenecks. The only limit? Human creativity. The NoCode Summit showcased many examples of how AI can enhance no code solutions, opening new doors for innovation.
3. A Thriving No Code Community
Having a summit of this scale with more than three thousand in-person attendees demonstrates the power of no code at scale. Unlike any other tooling, no code platforms benefit significantly from community interactions. To be in a space where the users and developers of no code platforms can all partner together, work with each other, and help our users build the best thing that they need is amazing.
There are various tools for different use cases, and having so many leaders and technology evangelists all in one place shows the power of no code technology at scale. The sense of community at the summit was palpable. The connections made, the collaborations discussed, and the collective vision for a future where technology is accessible to all—these were the building blocks of a vibrant and thriving no code community.
4. Learning from Real-World Success Stories
Speakers at the summit shared real-world success stories that were nothing short of inspiring. Entrepreneurs, small businesses, and even large corporations are using no code solutions to transform their operations, develop groundbreaking applications, and drive growth. It's proof that no code is more than a concept. It's a real and transformative force.
5. Preparing for the Future
Riding the feelings of inspiration from this event, we can't help but look forward to the future. No code is leveling the playing field and inviting everyone to participate in the digital revolution. The intersection of no code and AI is a testament to the limitless possibilities that lie ahead.
The future is in AI and no code. The “and” is where these technologies, the creators, and the world take flight. At Thunkable, our vision extends beyond our platform to a world where technology truly serves all humanity.
We invite all of you to join us on this journey. Whether you're a seasoned developer, a budding entrepreneur, a business owner, a student, or simply someone with a great idea, the future of tech is in your hands.
For those who were unable to attend the event and missed my presentation, I invite you to join my talk on “The Power of AI-fueled No Code Mobile App Development” on Wednesday, Nov 8th at 1 p.m. PST / 4 p.m. EST.
Hope to see you there!
