Key outcomes

Understanding the no-code world

What can you do with no-code and when is code necessary? What is the right tool for your business and how much time should you spend on them? When does it make sense to outsource? You will get a clear idea of what can you accomplish with no-code tools after the course.

Creating an online presence

How can you create an online presence without spending too much time and resources? Understand the pros and cons of using different website builders for your particular need, with hands-on exercises that help you build your very own, by the end of the course.

Creating a minimal viable product

Understanding the fundamentals of creating a web app or mobile app (based on the cohort's preferences) to test a concept - using the group to test it and understand how to customize it and integrate it with other tools.

Building a community that keeps you accountable

The magic of cohort based courses are that we learn together in real-time. We solve problems together, lean on each other and create a network of like-minded individuals.

        Sonali has a knack for making complex things simple. She taught us a no-code class last summer and it was very clear, concise, and easy to understand. I created my own website soon after and realized that anyone can do it!

Sonali Quantius, Ph.D.

Digital Health Entrepreneur

I am a scientist with a background in data science. As a digital health entrepreneur and domain expert, I had several ideas but was frustrated because I couldn't find a tech co-founder who could build the products.

Then, I stumbled upon the wonderful world of no-code tools and since then, I have created the MVP for my main business, along with an animal rescue app, a female founder matching app, neighborhood directory app, among others and there is nothing to stop me now.

I spent years learning about these tools from scratch and now I am distilling my extensive knowledge into this practical course so that you can quickly build and test out your ideas without spending a lot of resources and time.

You can learn more about me here.

Course syllabus

01

Kick-off, get to know your cohort and deep dive into the no-code world

The magic of a cohort-based course is in its community! Get to know the other entrepreneurs, makers, and solopreneurs and create a valuable network. We will dive deep into the no-code world and explore the benefits and limitations of using various no-code tools: how we can use them for different kinds of products and what is right for your business

02

Dive right in!

In this lesson, we will deep dive into what makes a successful MVP and what are the 'Minimum Valuable Features' that we need for your own product. If you already have an idea, we will tease out the features that you need to build in the next few weeks

03

Building the product backend

Now it starts getting exciting - this week, we will learn how to create the backend for your app - what is under the hood, so to speak. What kind of data is needed, how to structure it, and how to optimize it? We will learn about the pros and cons of using different databases for storage and retrieval and build your own.

04

Building the product frontend

We will finish building the app by learning about the basic framework for building an app without code. We will learn about the drag & drop reusable building blocks to create your app’s interface and how to interact with the database to display the right information when needed. And just like that, you have a minimal app that you can launch!
