No-Code MVP by Bram Kanstein

No-Code MVP

Learn the mindset, process and tools to rapidly turn your startup idea into a first product you can test with potential customers. All without writing a single line of code.
Build and validate your startup idea within a few days.

If you have a great startup or product idea that you want to pursue, it's important to quickly validate if it has any potential.  Building a "Minimum Viable Product" without code is a great and cost-effective way to figure out if it makes sense to spend more effort, time and resources on the idea.

In this course, you will learn how to define, build and launch a first version of your product that you can test in the real world.

On top of that, I'll show you how to quickly build that product yourself, without learning or knowing how to code.

What you will learn

This course is divided into 8 chapters to make sure you get the best learning experience possible. Starting from the fundamentals all the way to launching and learning from your very own Minimum Viable Product.

1. Introduction
To get started I will share my personal story and journey, show the importance of the right mindset, introduce you to the Lean Startup Framework, teach you the value of using a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and present you the MVP Experiment Canvas that will structure your path towards your own No-Code MVP.

2. Understanding your potential customers and their problems.
New business ideas are mostly about end-products (which is good!), but you have to take a step back to investigate and understand who's problem(s) you want to solve.

3. Turning your idea into a value proposition.
When you understand who's problem you want to solve, it's time to construct an offering for these potential customers.

4. Setting up your MVP Experiment - Part 1
After defining WHAT you're going to offer to WHO, we'll continue with setting up our experiment. How are we going to reach our target customer segment? How are we going to engage them? What are we going to test and how are we going to do that?

5. The tools to build an MVP without code.
Before continuing with our experiment setup, you will get acquainted with 10 tools you can use to build your own No-Code MVP.

6. Setting up your MVP Experiment - Part 2
Next up, we're going to define what metrics your are going to measure in your experiment and determine the criteria of a successful outcome.

7. Step-by-step building guides.
To show what you can do without knowing how to code, I'm taking you through the setup, process and tools to build 6 real life, and working, "No-Code MVP's".

8. Launching & Learning from your MVP experiment
You launched your MVP experiment and analyzed the feedback and information you gathered. Did you learn enough? and (how) should you move forward?

It's definitely helpful if you know how to work with computers and the internet + have time to dedicate to this course.

Having an existing startup idea is not required but the course does include some assignments that you can use for your own idea (and I will give you personal feedback!). The most important thing for this course to have is the right attitude, mindset and an open mind to learn as much as possible.
