📃 Long Summary

In this podcast episode, I interview Max, the founder of the 100 Days of No Code project. Conducted at the RSA house in London, the discussion delves into Max's journey into the no-code space. Max initially wanted to learn coding but was drawn to the no-code movement after reading an article by Ryan Hoover. Inspired by the "100 Days of Code" concept, Max started "100 Days of No Code" and chronicled the journey on Twitter.

The conversation touches on the benefits of project-based learning and the importance of community platforms like Twitter for sharing progress and mutual support. The project has since evolved from a hashtag to a community and now an education company. They have a paid Slack community and are offering structured learning experiences through curriculum and boot camps.

The episode also explores the future convergence of AI and no-code, mentioning tools like Zapier, Bardeen, and Framer which are integrating AI into their workflows. We both emphasize being tool-agnostic in the no-code field and talk about upcoming educational offerings, including a no-code times AI boot camp.

Regarding social media, Max is active on Twitter and LinkedIn, documenting their company's journey, while I mainly focuses on newsletters and YouTube tutorials.
