Kartik Tambi is 14-years-old and lives in the State of Maharashtra, India. 

And while he’s just starting out in high school, Kartik is already an intermediate coder–with a mid-level understanding of C++ and basic-level of PHP. 

But when it comes to building mobile apps, Kartik doesn’t spend months coding apps from scratch. That’s time he doesn’t have, especially with a full school schedule and a growing career as a freelance developer.

That’s right, this young entrepreneur is already building apps for clients like schools, NGOs and conferences.

Instead of coding from scratch, Kartik uses a no-code app builder called Thunkable to build industry grade mobile applications. 

Building Apps with Thunkable

Most recently, Kartik built a conference app for the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Features in this app included:

  • Registration systems
  • Payments
  • Scheduling
  • Individual profiles for attendees
  • Real-time alerts
  • Downloadable material
  • Photo-sharing
  • QR codes
  • The ability to share and save digital name cards

While a project of this caliber would take months to build with traditional coding, Kartik was able to complete the app in just a few weeks. 

Thunkable is changing app building in an amazing way. Compared to Android Studio and XCode, anyone can get started with Thunkable in just a few days. I never thought app building could be this easy.” -Kartik Tambi

Changing the Game with No-Code

Kartik has also built apps on Thunkable to help students and teachers better communicate at school. Pictured below, Kartik’s app “Bloom” is a sophisticated school portal that is packed with useful features.

Bloom allows students to take notes, share pictures, create to-do lists, and view assignments. It also helps teachers send out assignments, interact with student posts and access helpful tools. 

Kartik’s apps show that makers around the world are building their own mobile technology without a huge budget for developers or the ability to code.
