DIXN12-100: App Development for Everyone


Digital-first organisations depend on applications (apps) for competitive advantage, and they rely on professionals who know why, when and how to use and make them. You will learn how to make apps in this subject, regardless of your planned profession or mathematical background. Advances in application architecture have produced development platforms (DPs) that require either “no-code” or “low-code” interactions with which digital-first professionals make apps. These DPs use graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that permit the point-and-click assembly of apps for use by other professionals, clients, or consumers. After learning about popular no-code and low-code DPs, you will follow the steps used by digital-first professionals to make your first app. You will also learn about project logic, scope and risks associated with app development and the essential best practices for creating apps using mainstream DPs.
