National No-Code Day on March 11 celebrates individuals, businesses, and other networks that create and automate without using code. Started by the no-code automation leader Zapier, the day aims to promote the no-code movement and create awareness for businesses and organizations to do more without code. No-code tools allow anyone to automate workflows, connect and create apps, and build scalable systems for their entire company.
