Lessons from #100DaysofNoCode Demo day

This is based on the 100DaysofNoCode demo and you can learn more about the programme here


In mid-November I was invited by Max, Founder of the 100DaysofNoCode to do a soft launch of what I had been working on since committing to my No Code challenge.

At the time of writing, I’m on my 51st day of 100DaysofNoCode and have built weird and wonderful things from a chatbot with Ray J’s face to a landing welcoming Partey to Arsenal.

I personally decided to defer my demo because I'm excited about what I will be building at the beginning of 2021.

Building in Public

After a Max Haining,  gave an intro on what “No Code” means to him, KP gave an epic intro speech about building in public.

KP spoke about how fostering a constant state of appreciation and gratitude is important. One of the the things it brings you is an audience if done right.

  • Following/List = Superficially involved in what you do
  • Audience = People that see you in and out and feel like they share a tiny part in your success. People who think they know you

🎯 Build something cool and put it out there.

People overestimate what can be built in a week and underestimate what can be built in 90 days. Athletes have been building in public for years.

Your heroes (Founders & Makers) are passionate people showing up everyday -

After giving a shoutout to people he already knew or people he watched on the internet and thanking Max for his impressive execution, he asked people what they had built and to take stock of how far we had come and how early No Code is.

People don’t want a big TechCrunch article. People want bits and pieces
