Why do you hate coding?

Haha! I don't hate coding... I actually think you should learn to code! I push building projects without code to lower the barrier for those of us who cannot code (yet!). It allows you to validate your ideas before you go out to find a technical co-founder or learn to code (if that is your path!).

What kind of topics do you cover?

Tutorials cover a range of topics that aim to help you build working prototypes without having to code. Anything from idea generation, quick validation, customer development, prototyping, making a logo, admin panels and building full projects!

Will you make an tutorial on _____?

I'd love to! If you're a paid subscriber, I normally prioritise those suggestions over others. I get a lot of requests but I'll do my best.

Is any content free to use?

Yes! There are tools and smaller tutorials that will be released that are free to consume. Pro members get access to the premium content and a bunch of other benefits as mentioned on the pricing page.

Who are you?

I'm Ben - hey! I used to run Community at Product Hunt where we were acquired by AngelList. I oversaw 80k+ products launch and subsequently built around ~25 products (without code) with over 10,000 upvotes on Product Hunt, 4.5 Million+ page views and 600k+ users. I've been featured on TechCrunch, Venture Beat and others. I also wrote The Non-Technical Guide to Launching Products & Side Projects.
