The product hunter

I usually tell people that if product hunt was a person — it would be me.

As an indie hacker with limited resources, the one fulcrum of leverage that you have, is to be more resourceful at finding tools that will give you a distinct advantage, or a force multiplier of your skills, time, and motivation.

This is why I’m a huge fan and supporter of no code projects.

I’m just like you, but not as smart.

The goal of this article is to give you an overview of the no code landscape. I want to help you get started, even if you know nothing about web development, and to give you a process to succeed at creating something valuable.

My baseline assumption is that you can read and write, and you are deeply passionate about making something on the web.

I’m assuming that you have no prior web development experience, you might have even been told that you need to hire someone expensive, or to find a technical cofounder if you’re trying to launch a startup.

I say this because — this was me about 3 years ago.
