How Tim learnt no-code to launch his climate change community 🌱

Tim Falls, a climate change activist from California, had been wanting to get his community project off the ground for a while.

But a lack of confidence in his ability to execute his project from a technical standpoint left him stuck in v1 and unable to launch.

Tim joined the inaugural No-Code Fundamentals course cohort in April this year, hoping to shift both his confidence and building ability into second gear.

"Climate Friends is an online community where members can join circles and support one another in their emotional experiences related to climate change. I joined the course because I wanted to learn how to build a more sophisticated v2 of Climate Friends before opening it up."


This is Climate Friends today:

Once the course started, Tim got stuck straight into experimenting with tools and automating workflows.

In particular, Notion for his site content, Super for domain and hosting, Circle for community, and Memberspace (and eventually Gumroad) for memberships.

Throughout the course, he iterated on his project, getting feedback from the instructors and his peers until it was in a launch-ready state:

Like many people in the cohort, Tim enjoyed the supportive atmosphere and invaluable feedback that came with being surrounded by a group of people learning together.

"I didn't expect to be so strongly drawn into this course as I have been. I've dived deeper than I expected, and that's because it's been so much fun, and there's a community of people to support and cheer me along."


He's taken his project work further too, using his new-found knowledge to set up another community for raising awareness about the planet's water crisis.

The best part is that Tim is now forever armed with an arsenal of no-code skills that he can use to explore new tools and further projects.

"For me, my previous interest and excitement for Notion and Airtable have grown throughout the course. I’m especially eager to spend more time with Glide. Circle has grown on me since trying it out, and Luma recently piqued my interest, too — both for community, events, newsletters, etc."


The second cohort for the No-Code Fundamentals course starts on June 21. There's still time to apply if you want to join and kickstart your no-code knowledge.

We hope to see you there!
