The terms “low-code” and “no-code” are often mentioned together because they are similar. Both low-code and no-code platforms use visual interfaces to enable users to develop their own business solutions without extensive coding knowledge.
The main difference between low-code and no-code platforms, as implied by their names, is that low-code platforms can still include coding in certain cases whereas no-code platforms require absolutely no coding whatsoever.
This essentially means that no-code technology is designed specifically for citizen developers, while low-code technology caters to both citizen developers and professional developers. Because low-code platforms can still involve coding, they are capable of creating larger and more complex applications than no-code platforms typically can. For better flexibility and control over the development cycle, forward-thinking businesses deploy platforms that combine both low-code and no-code technologies.
