Can you build an AI-powered product without code? 🧠

Hey! I’m Nile and this is my first newsletter as the new owner of NoCode - hopefully it’s up to scratch! 😰
Bit of background on me: I’ve been coding for a decade, somewhere around my 18th birthday I just stopped enjoying it and it became a means to an end for my product ideas. I spent a lot of time seeking out quicker or more enjoyable ways to achieve my goals and really got into code-free tools like and - so when I first found NoCode last year, it was a “Wow, I should’ve thought of that!💡” moment.
Day to day, I run a consultancy where I help big enterprises work more like tech companies and my current side ventures include CitySense, an AI parking enforcement startup (built with code…but below might just change that!) and Concrete Capital, a private equity fund for small internet companies.
I first met Sam a few months ago and I’ve been really excited since to put my own energy into NoCode and help all of you build products or solve your (software-related!) problems. I’ll be continuing to publicly share the NoCode journey as Sam has and continuing to produce this newsletter every two weeks. Here’s a sneak peak of other things I’m going to be working on this year:

  • New Website with a refreshed design - Built without code and I’ll show you how I did it too
  • NoCode Academy (I’ll leave you with that unexplained clue…)
  • A course on building products without code
  • More community features
In the meantime, check out some of the articles and tools below - I’m particularly excited about Plasso’s Flexkit, which is helping me build the new NoCode members area.
Also, take a look at It’s often tricky for us NoCoders to build cutting-edge tech like machine learning into our products, but Lobe promises to let us build in image recognition, natural language processing, sound recognition and more, purely with a visual drag ‘n’ drop interface. Could this power your next product?
