Resource review: NoCode
What is it?
NoCode is a new online directory of free resources and tools for non-technical entrepreneurs, and has only just officially launched.
It provides a curated directory of free resources and tools for the non-technical entrepreneur – which is great, since there are lots of us out there with huge lofty ideas, and not much clue about how or where to make a start!
NoCode scours the Internet and selects the best free resources and tools so you can focus on creating your business. So far, NoCode features over 100 free resources and tools, all of which have been tried and tested by Sam and his team.
I had a poke around each of the sections and have been impressed with the range of categories / typical startup tasks they cover off and options they’ve found for each. I’ve been doing a lot of artwork and small video editing for websites recently, and most often just stick with what I know in terms of sourcing free open stock images to use. But under the Stock Images page of NoCode I found a pretty solid list of alternatives, which I’d never heard of before – awesome!
Who built NoCode?
The initial idea for NoCode came about after Sam Dickie (the Founder & Designer) created various websites and small businesses for himself, without a tech background and with an extremely low budget (£0 even!). After years of accumulating various tools, resources and hacks held in spreadsheets, notebooks, Evernote and bookmarks, he decided to create his own online resource and make it accessible everyone. Much like I’ve done with The Startup Story really – like the thinking!
Here’s what Sam had to say about his latest venture:
“Thankfully, some fantastic startups continue to develop tools that democratise website creation, graphic design and marketing, making it accessible to everyone. It was my fascination with all the new technologies that can empower people lacking in technical skills, which drove me to create NoCode”.
“Our mission is to empower people with the tools that can lower the barriers to entrepreneurship without breaking the bank in the process”.
What’s next for NoCode?
NoCode aims to continue adding the latest and best resources and tools, and expanding further into other categories to ensure all the essential tools and resources are at your fingertips. NoCode also aims to launch the NoCode Bot sometime in the near future. This will automatically provide users with the best recommendations for their particular startup needs.
