It used to be that you needed to be technical yourself or find a technical co-founder to build any kind of complex software applications. There’s a thriving business of web development agencies that charge hefty fees to build products – sometimes just simple MVPs – for founders that do not have the technical knowledge to do it themselves.

But not anymore. The no-code movement is real and it almost feels like every month brings its new set of no-code tools anyone can use to bring their idea to life. Here is a round-up of 30 of the most popular ones.
