Dear Analyst Episode 21: Building No-Code Tools and Applications from Spreadsheets

This is my talk from Webflow’s No-Code Conference that took place on November 13th, 2019 in San Francisco. The title of my talk was called Building No-Code Tools and Applications from Spreadsheets. The slides from my presentation are on SlideShare here.

Themes from the talk

This was my first time talking about my experience with spreadsheets and the Excel community in a public forum. The three themes I discussed based on my experience using spreadsheets for the last 10+ years are:

  1. Whatever platform you choose to build or make on, the platform should fundamentally challenge your beliefs about what it means to build apps and tools
  2. The technology behind many no-code platforms (including spreadsheets) is not as revolutionary as it may seem
  3. The community of users behind the platform will always be more important than the platform itself

The talk and slides should be published in the next few weeks, but I published my slides already which you can view below:
