oCode Journal tries to steer you towards a platform that’s best for you so that you can easily create a website. Website builders are a perfect solution for individuals and small businesses to start a website without hiring a developer. Most website builders offer a drag and drop user interface to build your website while some have templates for you to customize. In this article, we are introducing Pory.io, a tool that lets users create sites and web applications using Airtable or other NoCode tools.
Founder and Founding Story
The passionate founders of Pory.io are Samantha Wong and Luannie Dang, they are Software Engineers in Melbourne, Australia. Sam and Luannie became inspired after working with a startup who built their entire MVP using Airtable and eventually raised $1.5 million. They were amazed and thought that this could help non-technical people to validate and build their startups using NoCode solutions. Pory.io is great for marketers looking to share lists to build audiences or for makers looking to quickly validate ideas.
The founders worked on NoCode creating templates to enable users to create the same experience like the NoCode tools Airtable, Google Sheets or Notion as your CMS and last April, they were able to launch Pory.io. Sam, in the interview shared that they aren’t sure of the outcome but after the launch people started to reach out and ask for the details of the tool.
