“We see no-code in a similar light to the use of translation services for languages. Not everyone on the planet is suited to being a developer, and even though newer generations are becoming more computer literate, we think there will still be a limited pool of professional high-level developers,”Joyeeta Das, co-founder of Gyana, said.

“We are also considering entering the Indian market soon as we see a huge market there,” she added.
