The power of technology has always rested in the hands of those who understand it. But with new innovations in the field of software development, that dynamic is changing. Low-code and no-code tools are now giving people from non-technical backgrounds, to create complex applications independently with minimal training.
A citizen developer is a person who typically comes from a non-engineering background and builds applications with the help of IT-sanctioned low-code and no-code platforms. Citizen development is slowly becoming a crucial department for companies as the need for unique user-centric apps is growing. According to a survey, almost 84% of respondents said they wanted to see their companies do more to encourage citizen development.
