🎉 Cohort #2 of the No-Code Fundamentals course

We're super excited to announce cohort #2 of our hugely successful No-Code Fundamentals course!

If you want to build a business, launch a side-project, or get that idea you've been sitting on finally started — without writing code — this course is for you.

Read more and apply ➔

This is a hands-on, 'show up and do' course that will give you the foundational tools and skills you need to build and ship ideas, surrounded by a passionate group of makers and creators.

Cohort #1 has been an incredible experience, both for us at Makerpad and of course, the students in the cohort.

Students have learnt how to take their idea from just that — an idea — to fully-fledged, business-ready projects in a matter of weeks. They've grasped the concepts of no-code, studied the building blocks of automation, and flexed their design skills beyond what they thought was possible. Read more.

⚒️ Tool Path

Ever wanted to extract lots of data from one or more websites without doing it manually? Web scraping tools like ParseHub and Simplescraper can help with that! With this tool-path, you'll learn how to extract data from the web and transform that data into a useful format. We will walk through two use-cases of web scraping. This tool-path was built by our Creator in Residence, Tessa.
