Zapier Wants to be Your No-code One-stop Shop
Evidence mounts that Zapier has a thirst for no/low-code domination. What's next after Zapier Zaps, Tables, and Interfaces?
Claudia Cafeo 🏳️🌈 recently interviewed Zapier’s Bryce Vernon in a great interview that exposed more of Zapier’s assault on the no/low-code segment demonstrating its new Interfaces module currently in beta. I believe anyone can access this new feature today.
It means that…
You can connect form-like UIs with Zapier Tables
You can perform FREE automations between Interfaces and Tables
You can build simple no-code solutions inside Zapier
You can chain tables and interfaces as integral components with six thousand other apps.
Let that sink in.
I like where this is heading not because I ascribe to the idea that no-code systems should be deeply dependent on any integration layer but because I have been trying to educate no-code enthusiasts to begin designing their solutions from the center, where the router of the solution typically exists.
Vastly, no-codeists naturally begin with the database, like SmartSuite, and then work their way out to what amounts to the integration and workflow layer that extends the no-code database platform. One of the slides Bryce Vernon showed in the video interview shows Zapier at the center of the design process alongside the typical approach most no-code developers approach projects.
