Appian introduces a free low-code training course. The course is available to undergraduate and graduate students who have interrupted their studies, job seekers, career changers and veterans.
Appian shared the news at Appian World, its annual conference. The organization is introducing a free course to provide careers to new low-code developers. The program — #lowcode4all — is available to a variety of candidates. Students, job seekers, veterans and career changers are eligible.
Those interested can register via the registration page. Afterwards, you’ll be walking through an online curriculum, concluding with a practice exam. If passed, you’ll receive a ‘Low-Code Ready Badge’ for LinkedIn. The badge gives potential employers an idea of skill level. Although that level is adequate, you’re only halfway there.
The next step is the Appian Certified Associate Developer exam. Passing this exam makes you a certified Appian developer. This title opens a world of jobs in Appian’s partner network. Finally, Appian offers continuing education by mentoring job-seeking developers. Everything is free.
Appian provides the curriculum, learning materials, mentorship and a network of organizations that want to help participants. This network is known as the #lowcode4all coalition. Organizations within the network are able to contact program participants. Among the first partners are train-to-hire companies SkillStorm, Revature, Ethnus and Xebia. These companies train candidates in preparation for jobs. If your organization is interested in joining the partner programme, feel free to contact Appian by e-mail.
“The global economy needs more developers”, shared Matt Calkins, CEO of Appian. The ease of learning low-code enables people to shift careers, update skills, and improve their circumstances. Appian is committed to making low-code careers available for all.”
Gartner estimates that a quarter of all new applications in 2020 were developed using some form of low- and no-code technology. The market researcher predicts that low- and no-code technology will play a role in 70 per cent of all new applications by 2025. Low-code solves labour shortages by lowering the entry threshold of development.
