About Nocode Institute

NoCode institute is a digital reskilling platform that allows "underestimated" transitioning talents to reboot their careers by learning to build software without code.

NoCode Institute was born with the mission of reskilling and relaunching careers of people left behind in the digital economy by democratizing software-building skills through NoCode development (aka Visual programming).

World's pioneers

NoCode Institute has been one of the World's pioneers in taking NoCode to the "unemployable," empowering this growing community to become competitive and future-proof in the current job market through market-driven digital reskilling education that helps people change their lives.

OUR Mission

The Digital Transition is broken.

Too many non-technical people are being left out and left behind. And many more will be, leaving millions of 'old-economy' talented professionals without the deserved opportunities. Mckinsey points out more than 375 Million people will have to switch-occupation, and the World Economic Forum has been forecasting that "we need to reskill +1 Billion people by 2030".

We believe everybody can grow and develop themselves to become a value driver. We believe there's a better way and that the World deserves better. That's why we started NoCode Institute.

We took NoCode Visual Development and designed everything with one goal: to help non-technical transitioning professionals become more employable in the digital economy.
We empower them with new technology development skills that are growing critical without learning how to code. And we support them in their new job search every step of their journey.

Our Story

The NoCode Institute Difference 

NoCode Institute began as a learning and development journey itself.
For different reasons, our Co-founders Miguel and Nelson discovered NoCode and Visual Development at the beginning of the World movement. As non-technical, NoCode tools allowed them to build the digital solutions they needed without learning how to code. They tried and soon realized that coding was not easy, not fast, and not for everyone (them included).

After learning these NoCode "super-powers" and changing their lives, they couldn't keep it for themselves. So they decided to create NoCode Institute with the dream of sharing these new skills with more people, especially those that need them the most.

NoCode Institute launched in 2021, and since then, thousands of non-technical people, despite age, gender, and social or academic background, have learned, mastered, and changed their lives in our programs. But, as they always say, life is a marathon of sprints, and we have just done the first few… Buckle up, and let's enjoy the ride together.

Join us in our journey to change more lives for the better.

Our Principles

There are six founding principles that we defend and live by

Leave No One Behind

Do not depart without ensuring that all can come as well. Everybody has talent waiting to be unleashed. All of us, even if non-technical, deserve to develop the skills to become future-proof value-driver. No one should be left behind.

It's never too late

Never stop learning because life will never stop teaching. The ongoing self-motivated pursuit of learning, along with an insatiable curiosity, is what makes the most of our journey. Impossible is nothing, regardless of how old one is. Never stop learning.

Together, we go further. And faster

Learn, build, collaborate & achieve more together. The power of team achievements always trumps individual pursuits, so we unconditionally stand by collective growth while learning and working. Teams and communities offer more opportunities to engage, network, develop relationships, share common interests and passions, advance together, achieve goals and celebrate alongside your peers.

One step at the time

Trust the process and show up daily. Typically, people use the phrase "Rome wasn't built in a day" to remind the time needed to create something great. And it's true. It takes time to develop a new project or skill. But was is also true that it wasn't built in a day, but they were Laying Bricks Every Hour. We believe in starting small, showing up every day, and taking small steps without chasing the next shiny object, magic recipe, or silver bullet. Just focus on improving 1 percent each day.

Less is More

Make it more straightforward and accept imperfection. Less is not only about making it simple but also embracing frugality. We believe in accomplishing more by mastering the power of simplicity and narrowing it down to the minimum acceptable version. And we believe in doing it with less. Constraints breed resourcefulness, self-sufficiency, and creativity.

Bright side of life

Embrace Positivity without excuses. We stand by feeling good about life, not complaining about everything, and taking on the sunny side. Be kind, have fun, make others happy and radiate karma.
