The demand for IT applications from the business continues to grow. IT departments can barely cope with this demand. Low code and no-code application platforms can offer a solution for this. These platforms enable users to build their own applications and become a citizen developer.
During the Low-code No-code Day the opportunities and challenges will be discussed.
The Low-Code No-Code Day 2020 in Utrecht includes the following sessions.

Low code and no-code platforms are becoming more and more popular. They promise that end users can develop applications themselves, without the intervention of programmers. This sounds nice, but what are the considerations from the perspective of software engineering? Is there actually “no” code? In this presentation, Tijs looks at the rise of low-code/no-code in a broader perspective.
by Nick Winkelman, programme manager digital at Itho Daalderop
Coming from a situation in which the digital landscape was fairly unmanageable thanks to outdated techniques and a large vendor lock-in, Itho Daalder has taken the path of low code. The platform Betty Blocks was chosen for this. Together with the partners, Itho Daalderop has worked and is working on the rapid realisation of complex, yet clear digital solutions. Thanks to low code, the vendor lock-in has been greatly reduced; the turnaround time for building new functionalities has been greatly accelerated; and the possibility to build with the vendor has been greatly expanded. Nick Winkelman shows how Itho Daalderop came to this solution and where the digital future will go for them.
Eline Bijkerk, DevOps engineer at BAM Infra NL
Bouwbedrijf BAM has chosen the low code platform Mendix for the construction of its timekeeping system. What were the considerations for not opting for a more traditional solution? How does a low-code application fit into an organisation with a large number of existing applications? On the basis of this case study, you will be taken into account the pros and cons of using a low-code platform in practice.
