Understanding and using codes has become a challenge in recent years resource that can be spent in any working environment who uses digital tools, and who may be able to represent a decisive step in their career and their business.
Basic programming skills increase the understand the possibilities offered by technology, and at the same time save money on counseling and jobs which, with a good foundation and a little practice, can be done on your own.
In this area aulab organizes training dedicated to coding that allow you to approach this world by creating skills to also use in your workplace or to start a career in programming.
the Hackademy course has been structured so that a person with a average propensity to use computers but driven by passion and the desire to get involved, is perfectly capable of creating the foundations that allow him to find work in a few months or to improve his knowledge in this field.
For the development of a website, desktop software or mobile application, it will be necessary to use programming platforms and software more appropriate languages. Depending on the goals, you can choose between different options, each with its own more or less long and demanding learning curve. A solution for those who need tools to quick programming, can turn to a low-code platform.
What is low-code?
A low-code development platform eliminates the need for traditional manual programming thanks to the use of a graphical interface characterized by predefined visual components.
It goes without saying that this greatly simplifies the creation of software and saves all the time spent programming each element. It is therefore a type of programming, but a simplified type, suitable for those who do not have specific needs, but especially for those who have little knowledge in this area.
This does not mean that there are aspects to be done manually. Say 20% of the work must go to integrate the functions and predefined codes. However, there are other types of platforms, defined no code, which do not require the insertion of any type of code and therefore do not allow any type of customization.
A programming platform to be low-code must have 4 characteristics.
1. Access to graphic models
The interface of low-code platforms is intuitive and thanks to the presence of selectable models thanks to a simple drop-down menu, the user can configure his work without too much effort. Modeling enables rapid development of web and mobile applications, with a strong advantage under theproductivity aspect.
Saving time is the main characteristic of using this type of application. After manual programming is limited, users can use other ready-made templates, plug-ins and widgets, reusable at will as many times as you want.
3. Access via the cloud
The vast majority of low-code platforms allow management of your application, including visual elements, via cloud resources. This ensures that it is the same always accessible and usable. But if you want to modify a new database, the good thing is that you don’t need to reprogram.
4. Post-development assistance
The manager of the low-code platform used for your project provides assistance at the end of the development phase. These are therefore tools that also integrate the offer and assistance aspect.
The advantages of low-code programming
With no manual programming, you have the ability to work faster and get results in less time.
2. Ease of use
As mentioned, the learning curve is made very short by the presence of models to choose from and the intuitiveness of the interface.
The ease of use of these tools allows them to be adapted to different contexts, ensuring immediate responsiveness to new needs.
4. Cost reduction
The results in less time and the unnecessary need for specific training lead to a reduction in costs.
5. A greater variety of solutions
Not being a platform for professional programmers and being easy to use, this type of platform allows experts from different sectors to contribute in the creation phase.
