Backendless is the perfect backend platform for Codeless (or no code) and low code application development. Our Codeless system, along with our user-friendly user interface, makes it easy for anyone to build a fully functional mobile or web app.
In the webinar above, we showcase how to build a fully Codeless mobile app from front to back. For the frontend, we use Dropsource, a drag-and-drop visual app builder that creates native iOS and Android apps. The backend is, of course, Backendless.
If you want to try building an app right along with us, you can check out our step-by-step guide to building a Codeless app with Backendless and Dropsource.
0:00-2:34 – We quickly cover the purpose of the webinar and the agenda.
2:34-5:05 – Codeless apps typically have no or very little hand-written code. They are usually built using visual builders. Such builders will provide pre-made components that allow for the automation of repetitive, boring, and mundane tasks. Finally, it is our position that any worthwhile Codeless platform will have the option to switch to 100% code if needed.
5:05-9:49 – Introduction to client-server integration and our two platforms of choice: Dropsource and Backendless.
9:49-15:39 – In this section, we walk through an existing To-Do List project to demonstrate how the Dropsource platform works.
15:39-20:32 – Next, we demonstrate Backendless Console for the existing project. Here, we focus on how the two platforms integrate with each other. You will see how actions taken in the frontend of the app are processed on the backend.
20:32-27:25 – In this section, we discuss how APIs you bring over from Backendless are invoked within Dropsource.
29:59-35:49 – Now, we build the List screen and the remainder of the To-Do List demo app. Here, we cover data binding between the two platforms.
35:49-37:36 – Moving on, we introduce you to the second demonstration app: the Autocomplete app.
We hope you enjoy the video. It showcases just a few of the awesome features that can be built into a Codeless app with Backendless and Dropsource.
Happy (Codeless) Coding!
