Low-code is a visual approach to software development. Low-code lets you use visual drag and drop tools to build applications rather than manually developing an application with high-code languages, like HTML or Java. 

Low-code developers build applications such as employee/customer onboarding applications, insurance quote portals, and other applications that help organizations succeed.

The #lowcode4all program is free for eligible participants.

Eligible participants include higher education students, unemployed individuals, career-changers, and military veterans. The program is perfect for those with a background in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics).

Ineligibility includes full-time developers or other fully employed technical employees, Appian Partners, Appian employees, and high school students or younger.
