Appian announces free educational coding program for aspiring developers


Cloud computing enterprise software company Appian announced #lowcode4all, a free program that provides access to low-code education and certification to drive career advancement and opportunity for low-code developers in Australia.

It guides eligible participants on how to learn low-code technology and complete their Appian Certified Associate Developer exam.

Appian aims to issue at least 1,000 #lowcode4all scholarships this year worldwide.

Citing a study from Morgan Stanley, Appian says there are 26 million developers in the world with a demand of 38 million by 2024.

According to the study, as one of the fastest growing industries in the world, low-code technology will fill that gap because it allows anyone to be a developer.

Gartner predicts that by 2025, 70% of new applications developed by enterprises will use low-code or no-code technologies, up from less than 25% in 2020.

By reducing financial barriers, #lowcode4all opens access to a career in low-code. Initially, the #lowcode4all program is available to current undergraduate and graduate students, students who have paused their education, unemployed individuals and people looking for a career-change.

For the program, Appian has created a new Low-Code Ready Badge, shareable on LinkedIn, that tells employers that the candidate is trained in low-code and is ready to be a productive member of a team.

After attaining the badge, program participants receive a voucher for the certification exam. After earning Appian Certified Associate Developer status, participants will have access to hiring recruiters through the #lowcode4all Hiring Partner network.

“The Australian economy needs more developers. 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,” said Appian CEO Matt Calkins.

#lowcode4all program participants are provided with:
A complete low-code curriculum and education resources.
A clear learning path to earn a Low-Code Ready Badge and to complete the Appian Certified Associate Developer exam for free.
Access to hiring recruiters through the Appian Partner network.
Job search skills support (resume help, interview tips, etc.).

The #lowcode4all program is initially being supported key partners such as Procensol.

“Australia must increase its developer talent pool to meet the needs of the local market. With more organisations seeking applications built on low-code, initiatives like Appian’s #lowcode4all program will help open new pathways for the next generation of software engineering talent,” said Procensol managing director Dan Cooke.

As part of #lowcode4all, Appian is also establishing the #lowcode4all coalition, which will include a diverse mix of non-profit, corporate, and academic institutions to help the program reach all eligible participants.
