This week I helped a few founders to make successful deals.
Our team started rebuilding Microns landing page to give more clarity and information to the new users. Found lots of stuff that can be improved.
Besides this, you'll find an answer to a question from one of the followers who asked about the pros and cons of no-code tools and traditional development.
P.S. This paragraph goes to the Ukrainian nation fighting for democracy against Russian fascism.
I wanted to visit Mariupol because I heard many positive things about this city from my friends. But now, 90% of this beautiful place is destroyed. We always have one chance.
All people pray for Azov troops. These people won't give up till death.

Last week, Raja successfully sold his project and wrote a post on Indie Hackers about his journey(the actual price is disclosed).
The most exciting thing is that the startup is only one month old. The founder scratched his own itch and earned $1,000 from this acquisition. It was his first experience selling a project.
🎉Holy Moly I just sold my side project 💰
It's one month old and had a blast with it 🚀

Answer: Based on my experience, no-code apps are easier to start with, launch, and validate with users/revenue. But it's so hard to customize and scale them.
Traditional tech is more about customization and things that cannot be achieved using no-code tools.
So, I'd recommend starting with no-code tools and moving to the standard code approach when the time comes.
Building MVP with no-code instruments is essential to ensure that you get ROI if you decide to move to the custom development.
Suppose you want instant access to all companies with unblurred images, metrics, support details, and the ability to contact startup founders.
