Rethinking Citizen Development

Many of us have been promoting for several years now the idea of non-developers building applications themselves. I, in fact, did a keynote at the Stockholm ESPC five years ago on this very topic. A lot has happened since then. Many organizations have tried citizen development, with a wide variety of results. Many tools have emerged, with a wide variety of approaches. It’s time to take a look at how that has worked out, where it’s worked well, where it’s been a disaster, and which factors — technical and organizational — determined the difference.

Benefits of attending this session:

  1. A clear understanding of what citizen development is and is not.
  2. A reality check on what has and hasn’t worked
  3. A set of recommendations for how to allocate resources and promote organizational change.

 

Host: Mike Fitzmaurice, Chief Evangelist and VP North America at WEBCON - a recognized thought leader in workflow/business process automation, citizen development, and low-code/no-code solution platforms and strategies. He has more than 25 years of product, consulting, evangelism, engineering, and IT management expertise. His 11 years at Microsoft included being the original technical product manager for SharePoint, helping launch and shepherd its first three releases; it was Mike who birthed, developed, and led developer evangelism on SharePoint, positioning it as a development platform. Other gigs included a decade at Nintex as Vice-President of Workflow Technology, a year as Chief Technology Officer for skybow, and five years as Director of IT at the National Association of Broadcasters.
