You don't need to be a coder to build software. Bubble is a visual programming tool that makes programming as easy as pointing and clicking. Instead of teaching code, we reinvent how we build software via a visual interface.
Users have used Bubble to get into YC or raise multi-million dollar rounds. Today, Bubble counts more than 175,000 users
- fast and easy way to create web & mobile applications
- even non-technical people can build powerful and beautiful appsCons:
requires some efforts to learn but it's still waaaay faster and easier than learning to code
I have first encountered Bubble almost 3 years ago when they just launched on Product Hunt. And Bubble has literally changed my life. Not only mine but of hundreds of thousands of people that all of a sudden got empowered to build products that they would never build otherwise. Bubble reduces the time and costs of creating web and mobile apps dramatically, revolutionizing the whole space of web development. It also enables totally non technical people to build beautiful and powerful apps without requiring developers. Yes, I can be called biased since together with my co-founder Vlad Larin we have founded a business building products on Bubble (https://zeroqode.com), but if this business strives and provides jobs to 25+ team members then it only proves the fact that Bubble is indeed a great platform.Levon has used this product for one year.
Full flexibility (design, database, workflows), Scalable software (not just for prototypes), Connect to anything (APIs & plugins)Cons:
Easy to learn but hard to master, No coding needed but complex apps still require significant logic & design
In 2013, I started using Bubble to build an online marketplace for my startup. I had no coding experience and no budget, and was able to build an app with user signups, crowdfunding functionality, and payment processing. Bubble was rough around the edges, but it had the signatures of a disruptive technology. Over the past 5 years, the platform has evolved in dramatic fashion, adding hundreds of features, a marketplace for plugins, support for responsive design, the ability to connect to virtually any API, and immense performance & scalability improvements. In 2015 I co-founded AirDev, the first Bubble development agency, to help organizations build great applications using this powerful technology. We have built hundreds of products for startups & enterprises without having coders on our team. Many of our clients imagine they will use Bubble for a simple prototype, and then get hooked on the speed and flexibility with which we can develop. The Bubble team is committed to the long-run, aiming to replace traditional code as the medium for helping anyone create & express on the web. I'm excited to see where this wild ride takes us!Andrew Haller has used this product for one year.
