Developers for no-code projects sounds counter-intuitive - while no-code definitely reduces the burden on IT - eliminating the need for skilled technicians might not be the smartest approach. We recommend including at least one experienced architect as part of your implementation team.

Developers bring a wealth of expertise that can transform a good no-code project into a great one.

The developer touch

  1. Expertise in User Experience: Developers have a deep understanding of user behavior and can create designs that are not only visually appealing but also user-friendly.
  2. Problem-Solving Skills: They can identify potential issues in the design phase, saving time and resources in the long run.
  3. Optimization: Developers ensure that the application design is optimal ensuring that the data model and associated event logic runs correctly - a common side effect is finding solutions that do not provide referential integrity or have duplicate information silos.
  4. Integration: Most no-code platforms need to integrate with other up or downstream systems - building these integrations is best handled by experienced developers - this will ensure error handling and security best practices are followed.
  5. Data Migration: Most enterprise projects will need data to be imported or migrated from a legacy system - developers can provide the skills to ensure data loading is consistent. 

Build guardrails and upskill the team

Gartner predicts that by 2026, developers outside formal IT departments will account for at least 80% of the user base for low-code development tools

Making sure your team has a strong technical foundation and providing some guardrails is critical for the long term success of your implementation. A number of specialized training academies have been started. Get your key project management team trained on best practices.

Key take-away

Embracing no-code doesn’t mean saying goodbye to developers. On the contrary, it’s about leveraging their skills and experience to enhance the capabilities of no-code platforms. By doing so, you ensure that your project isn’t just good—it’s exceptional.
