Low Code / No Code and Citizen Development

Low-code or no-code development is the creation of applications software using graphic user interfaces or minimal basic code instead of large strings of complex coding. This term is often used to describe citizen development processes and technology. Low-code and no-code technology provides visual drag-and-drop or point-and-click user interfaces, making them easy for anyone to use.
