Sunday Brief - Issue #8

Sunday Brief - Issue #8
By Kieran Glover • Issue #8 • View online
Hey,
Welcome back to Sunday Brief, this is issue 8 of my weekly email newsletter for creative professionals where I share my thoughts, inspiration, life lessons and interesting reads from that week.
This week has been up and down to say the least. But at least through it all, I’ve still found some pretty exciting things across the web that have kept me uplifted and motivated. Especially in the ‘No/low code’ space.

What I’m thinking about
This week I published my latest blog post all about My Top 5 No Code Tools of 2020 and through writing this it really got me thinking about how these No Code tools are becoming a huge growth area and breaking down barriers to entry when creating online businesses.
Especially when validating new ideas, bringing them to market quickly and getting critical feedback from early users, websites like NoCode.tech and MakerPad, host a whole host of tools geared towards creating powerful, production ready websites and apps without having to touch code.
Even though I do believe no code is really changing the game and creating a more exciting, rapid paced and competitive tech market, I still love code and am still a huge advocate of people - not just designers - learning to code, or at least have some fundamental computer science knowledge. Not only will it smoothen out the learning curve of no code tools, but also reduces the risk attached to running your app on a specific tool or SaaS in a similar way you shouldn’t put all your savings into one company stock.
My favorite things this week
So I thought it would be fitting to list down some of my top no code related tools, resources and tech.
  • Bubble - allowing you to build powerful, interactive, data driven web apps.
  • N8N - visually create scalable automation workflows in a delightful way.
  • Landbot - powerful, intuitive and delightful visual Chatbot builder.
  • Vone - no code native app building.
  • Makerpad - learn to build tools for work and fun without code.
  • NoCode - Discover no code tools.

Resources for creative
As a web designer / developer working on a creative agency, I’m always on the lookout for new tools to a) keep me more productive and b) help me do my job better. Check out some of my favorite tried and tested tools:
  • Notion - My all time favorite note taking/productivity app
  • Digital Ocean - My go-to tool for spinning up blogs, websites and more
  • Webflow - The tool I used most often at work to Build better business websites, faster. Without coding
  • Landbot.io - Used both personally and professionally, Landbot makes it intuitive and easy to make both simple and complex chat bot experiences. The best part is, it’s a no-code tool.
