Low-Code Academy


While low-code will not replace traditional development, it has nonetheless emerged as a technological catalyst that levels the playing field for software development.

The rise of low-code development can be considered a response to the difficulties that currently surround modern business and IT. This includes a growing need for software that can react quickly to changing markets, address specific business issues, and even bring about enterprise-wide transformation. However, a shortage in trained developers means that businesses and organisations across various sectors are searching for ways to develop their own applications. For many, the search ends with low-code.

Low-code’s visual and intuitive approach empowers both developers and non-developers alike to rapidly create their own applications and innovate continuously. While low-code may not entirely replace traditional development, it has nonetheless emerged as a technological catalyst that levels the playing field for software development.
