I recently finished my 100 days of No Code which I started 6 months ago and I felt like it was obligatory to mark this moment after starting this challenge.
I can honestly say keeping up accountability at this stage in my life has been working and I’m probably going to be doing more of it this year - what this space 😉
Why did I do the challenge?
As a refresher, I wanted to build my muscle of kickstarting digital products online with tools that do the heavy lifting so that I could help more founders build quickly.
No Code is all about empowerment and making creation more accessible. It gives people a place where they can have something that works in a few hours, or over a weekend.
Has it met my exceptions
💯 - and more.
It’s been the traditional come for the tool, stay for the network
Have for anyone looking to do the challenge.
- Have a strong ‘why’
- Get started
- Get over the need for perfection
What my ‘Why’ was
What really helped me was the fact that I had been helping early stage founders get over the challenge of not being able to afford a developer by encouraging them to use No Code tools.
I felt like the best way to show others would be by doing and I’ve believe I have created a lot more awareness of this alternative. For people who don’t have the time to wait 3 months and need the advice now, I’ve also launched this service which helps Nigerian 🇳🇬 developers get laptops and has also confirmed how much I love supporting initiatives in Africa.
I also learned a few things about myself, like the fact that anything I commit to, I feel the need to keep I up.
Most of all I had fun doing it, and it gave me the confidence to ship quicker and where some people start the challenge with a specific startup idea in mind, I’ve been able to be more exposed widely to the tools that are doing the heavy lifting and know a lot more than when I started.
I spent more time building when using No Code tools, and I plan to use the next few months focussing more on mobile development 📱 as it’s an area that I am curious about.
