Our experience

We live and breathe no-code

We, the people behind the No-Code Academy, first deep dived into no-code to scratch our own itch. While applying it in the real world, we quickly saw the power that lies within this movement. We now preach no-code in Switzerland to inspire and empower as many people as possible to create.

We offer our no-code skills as an agency-service for entrepreneurs and corporates who want to learn and build fast at the fraction of the traditional agency-costs.
logo minimum viable conference
2021 was the first year we held the Minimum Viable Conference in Switzerland. It’s all about spreading the word of no-code and validating business ideas rapidly.
logo no-code.ch
We create and curate relevant content for no-code enthusiasts in Switzerland. We also offer education and resources for people to get started with no-code.
