I’m new here—drawn to join the community as my gut feeling and mind are telling me decoupled stacks, and specifically WeWeb and Xano, have a bright future ahead. I look forward to being part of this community, and adding any input where I can.
I’m a product manager (that previously ran a predominantly low-code / bootstrapped focused agency for 3 years and someone who has tried and failed to get market penetration at launching a B2B SaaS product, engaging that it was), aiming to up my working knowledge in current no-code and low-code platforms.
I’m about to start building an app in Bubble, primarily for learning purposes. However, I’m now considering building out the same app in WeWeb/Xano. Regarding the latter, I think I would want or need to work with a developer skilled in WeWeb and Xano, in large part, not least for expediency.
The app in question is a to-do list (yep, another one!), designed to incorporate logic, workflows, and a dashboard that, from a learning aspect, should be helpful to me. It has some differentiators from other to-do apps around deep work focus and health incentives through gamification. I would provide the full designs in Figma (with auto-layout).
Could someone recommend one or more affordable but skilled developers from the forum (or alternatively, if there is a particular freelance portal with WeWeb developers, point me in the right direction) so that I can have an initial consultation call about this to understand complexity and indicative build and maintenance costs before I consider taking the idea further?
Happy to pay $2 per minute or something similar for the call. I did reach out to someone on Fiverr, but their communication skills didn’t fill me with confidence.
There seems to be a trend in product managers .
I am also a PM who has gone down the no-code rabbit hole after working in early startups and seeing how valuable no-code can be.
I’ve used Bubble for multiple personal and client projects, and have recently started using WeWeb/Xano after seeing how much easier it is to build within for functional modern use cases.
Happy to hop on a call and discuss your use case.
If you haven’t yet seen it, there is an excellent video on Youtube that explains how a very basic to-do app can be built using WeWeb and Xano: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxvePxYaWkI.
It would be really helpful to have to have a chat with you, thank you.
I’ll check out the video and I’ll ping you early to midweek next week to arrange a call, as I should have the designs/prototype and basic logic done by then. Hope that works.
Sounds good - my email is email@example.com
Feel free to get in touch when you’re ready.
Thank you very much. I think this call will be really helpful to me.
Will be in touch soon.
Really cool to see you here!
As a former PM (and WeWeb employee ), I obviously 100% agree with what you said. For me, even before working for WeWeb, was the decoupled stack the way to go.
Hope you’ll find the help you need here
Welcome! Director of Product here.
I have found nocode tools have helped me get to aha! moments a lot faster and also to ‘NOPE’ dont spend time on that idea! lol
I would recommend the weWeb academy - it is worth a watch, even if you are getting others to build for you. Understanding CRUD in weWeb, variables etc… super useful.
All the best and see you around here
Thank you both - excited to be here.
I think Matthew will help me get a good understanding of the landscape and I’m also going to review the academy tutorials (recently I have been spending time understanding common principles and processes inc. CRUD so hopefully it won’t blow my mind :)). In fact, I’m almost certain I’m here to stay.
Thank you for the chat @MatthewS. Super helpful. Feel more aligned in my direction.
