Low-code development platforms (LCDP) enable IT professionals as well as those with limited technical know-how to build software programs with very little traditional computer programming. It does this using graphical user interfaces and application programming interfaces (API). This is in contrast to no-code development platforms (NCDP), where users require no coding knowledge, but are confined to building blocks and templates that do not offer the same level of customization.
Users can visually build programs such as business, web, and mobile applications; machine learning models; and integrations by dragging and dropping UI components and adding coding elements where necessary. Although this process may vary between platforms, most LCDPs automate the generation of frontend and backend code as well as configuration files based on user input.
