The days of recruiting, training, retaining, and growing an in-house development team are waning. As the war for talent rages on, organizations need to move faster, invest more diligently, and protect operational priorities. As such, a new era of technology has emerged, whereby “citizen developers” are able to conceive of, rapidly build, and scale apps, without needing to go through traditional IT timelines and gates.
Low-Code Development & Integration (“LCDI”) is now a reality. The ecosystem that has emerged around leading SaaS platforms like Salesforce.comd allows for rapid time-to-value. Popular platforms that have accelerated this progress include Zapier for system integration, Twilio for unified messaging, Skuid for user interfaces, and AirTable for flexible data.
This course was developed purely around the core tenants and tools of “LCDI”. It provides students with the strategic context of human-centered technology, the guiding principles of design thinking, and the practical skills of building and evolving applications using the leading PaaS & iPaaS tools. This curriculum will empower students as solution builders and digital innovators. By fostering creativity and expanding the scope and scale of jobs to be done, students will learn to create and capture business value by “enabling ideas”.
