25 Best Low Code Platforms to Build Websites or Apps in 2024

November 10, 2023

Mile Zivkovic

You don't need to be a developer to build websites or apps anymore. Simply use one of these low code platforms instead.

Up until recently, building an app or a website required boatloads of cash and extensive technical skills. You either needed enough money to pay a team of software development experts or you had to have coding skills yourself to build something from scratch.

But not anymore - thanks to low code platforms. These solutions are part of a new digital transformation, allowing everyone to build technical products with little to no knowledge of code. Today, we’re going to explore the very best low-code applications for different areas of building a business.

What are low code development platforms?

Low code platforms are frameworks that allow non-developers to create and edit applications without actually understanding or writing much code. The keyword here is “much”, because these are low-code platforms, not no-code.

In other words, you’re still going to need the basic knowledge of development to get the most out of these platforms.

What are the benefits of low code platforms?

Allowing everyone access to application development is the premise of using low code apps. But there are a few more advantages to these tools and platforms.

Faster time to production: since you don’t need development hours for every little aspect of your app, you can ship it and have it ready for your customers sooner rather than later.

Easier collaboration: with non-developer folk being able to create and customize apps, they can more easily collaborate with your devs and designers.

Less dependence on hiring developer talent: with a low-code platform with a simple graphical user interface, you won’t need to make haste hiring decisions and look for new devs to join your team.

Reducing your backlog: with more hands on deck, you can clear your backlog more quickly as your citizen developers help with the less complex tasks.

In general, even if you currently have a strong team of professional developers, it’s still a smart idea to introduce low-code application platforms in your business processes. Everybody wins - your users, your team, and your bottom line.
