Unlike traditional software development that requires a programmer or developer to write lines of code to create the desired features and functions, low-code/no-code tools let non-professional developers (sometimes referred to as "citizen developers") as well as professional developers easily drag and drop components and connect them together to create apps and workflows.
Low-code/no-code solutions can reduce cost and time normally associated with app development, so this type of development is a very desirable option for businesses worldwide.
You can discern the difference by their naming classification. Low-code programs may require the user to do some level of coding though not nearly as much as required for traditional application development. No-code programs do not require any coding experience by the user.
"Low-Code/No-Code Month" is a Microsoft event designed to let others explore the use of low-code, no-code platforms and raise awareness of the benefits they offer. During this time, Microsoft may offer resources, events, or promotions related to low-code, no-code technology to help individuals and organizations learn more about these platforms and how they can be used to create software applications quickly and easily.
No, business users do not need a programming background to take advantage of Power Apps and Power Automate . Power Apps and Power Automate are designed to be low-code and no-code platforms, meaning that users can build custom applications and automate workflows without writing code. Instead, users can use a visual interface and pre-built connectors to create applications and workflows.
The visual interface provides drag-and-drop tools for designing the user interface, defining logic and behavior, and connecting to data and services. Pre-built connectors provide integration with a wide range of systems and services, including cloud-based services like Office 365, Dynamics 365, and other enterprise systems like databases and line-of-business applications.
This makes it possible for business users who do not have a programming background to build custom applications and automate workflows, improving productivity and reducing the time it takes to bring new applications to market. However, it is still possible for more technical users, such as IT professionals and developers, to use Power Apps and Power Automate to build more complex applications and automate more complex workflows.
Microsoft Power Apps is a low-code platform for building custom applications. Here are six common use-cases for Power Apps:
