Common questions about learning

Do I need to know programming to start no-coding?
Do I need to know programming to start no-coding?
No, but it’s helpful. No-code is called no-code for a reason: you don’t need to know programming languages at all. HTML/CSS and JS will go a long way in helping you get a head-start sooner, however. With OpenAI’s integration available on the platform, whichever custom functions you’d like to write are also translated from plain text. Just tell the platform what to do, and it’ll take care of the rest.

That really depends on how much time you’re willing to put into learning, your background, and many other factors. We have case studies where a one-man team built a complete project in a month, and some built MVPs in a matter of hours. Get started, and see where it takes you. One fact is certain: learning Directual is a multitude of times faster than learning to program.
Do I need to pay for educational courses or lessons?

Is programming knowledge helpful for no-coding?
Is programming knowledge helpful for no-coding?
JavaScript, C languages, and other programming knowledge will come in handy if you already know it—for the sake of understanding the underlying logic behind the platform’s functionality. HTML/CSS and JS will help you even more, as creating niche solutions will be easier. Otherwise, you don’t need it to get started and build something awesome.

Is Directual everything I need to build an app?
Is Directual everything I need to build an app?
Our clients remark that backend-wise, they don’t need to use any extra third-party services to get their projects up and running. Some of them, however, use extra tools for frontend capabilities when absolutely mind-blowing eye candy is required. Otherwise, we recommend starting and seeing where you need something else to support your project—more often than not, Directual is enough for everything.
