From Coding in Next.js to Low-Coding in Webflow

In a world where technology is rapidly evolving, the transition from traditional programming techniques to more streamlined, accessible platforms is key. In this blog post, I share my personal journey from developing apps with Next.js to building websites with Webflow, a no/low-code platform that is revolutionising the way we design and implement websites.

A Passion Ignited

During my software development study, I began building websites as a side hustle. While HTML, CSS, and JavaScript were my tools, I viewed this venture as a way to earn some extra cash rather than a serious career path. My dreams then leaned towards owning an app development company or crafting complex web applications.

My perspective began to shift during an internship at an app development company in Utrecht. Immersed in a professional setting, I discovered a deeper love for programming. The thrill of solving complex problems and working on diverse projects resonated with me. However, as the internship progressed, a creeping monotony began to settle in. I realized that traditional programming only allowed creativity in limited scopes, such as debugging or function development.

The Discovery of Webflow

That’s when Webflow entered my life. Initially skeptical of the low-coding platform, I questioned the efficacy of creating robust websites with what appeared to be limited preset functions. Could these really compare to the possibilities unlocked by custom coding?

Driven by curiosity, I delved into Webflow and was quickly fascinated by its capabilities—from apps to CMS, dynamic pages, a thriving community, and the option to integrate custom code. It wasn’t long before I saw the potential not just in Webflow, but in shifting my career trajectory from app development to innovative website creation.

Finding a Niche in a Crowded Market

The decision to focus on Webflow was not just about embracing a new tool; it was about carving a unique niche in a saturated market. At 19, I observed errors made by established web development companies that seemed unfathomable for their size. Many offered cookie-cutter solutions—exactly what I aimed to avoid.

With Webflow, I realized I could let go of hardcore coding and focus more on branding and creativity. This tool allowed me to implement unique designs and features while still being efficient—perfect for standing out in a sea of uniformity.

Elevating the Digital Presence

Techlythical is more than just a digital agency; it’s a digital elevator. My approach with Techlythical isn’t about blending into the background; it's about breaking free from the digital echo and crafting a bespoke online presence that truly captures the essence of a brand.

With Techlythical, I utilize platforms like Webflow to push the boundaries of what's possible, ensuring that every website not only tells a story but also engages and captivates its audience. This journey from traditional coding to embracing a low-coding platform like Webflow is a testament to our mission to innovate and provide unique, tailored digital solutions that truly stand out.

Looking Forward

As I continue to explore and expand my expertise with Webflow, the goal remains clear: to redefine the norms of digital presence and elevate each project to its highest potential. By combining youthful innovation with sophisticated tools, Techlythical is set to transform the digital landscape, one unique website at a time.
