How I built an online book club to help my friends
If you told me a few years ago that I would be building building apps months apart, I would have kindly walked you out the room.
After launching the app I built in January, I decided to give myself another go, this time an Online Book Club. I wanted to also try another tool that could help me build things quickly.
This time I used Adalo to build a mobile app, so that I could compare the features.
So are you saying I shouldn't bother learning coding Yoms?
Definitely not. In fact, learning to code last year, made me better and more confident at using tools like this. I also, wouldn't worry too much about coding jobs going away - if you really want ot be a true coder, there will always be coding jobs around, you'll just get to enjoy solving more complex problems. Who do you think is building all these low-code tools in the first place?
Low-Code tools are making it easy to design, build and launch amazing things. You can literally just design amazing things.
It's definitely a mindset thing
The other day, my friend who is a producer told me he needed to create a way for his audience to listen to and download music in different formats. Feeling a bit frustrated with how long his friend was taking to build it, he went on wix.com, grabbed a template and got going. He literally went live in 3 days
It's not uncommon for people to work on side-projects for the fun of it, but this personally helps me get feedbacfk loops quicker. It's super cost-effective.
Here's the link to the mobile app in case you were wondering.
