Appy Pie Launches Free App Development Workshop for Students

The training workshop aims to teach K-12 and post-secondary students the fundamentals of app development without the need for complex coding, according to an announcement from organizers.

The tech company Appy Pie has launched a free app development training program for K-12 and university students to learn how to create their own mobile applications.

According to a news release, Appy Pie’s free no-code app development workshop will provide hands-on training to introduce students to the basics of application development, such as creating a demo app and publishing it in mobile app stores.

Educators can organize the workshop to teach students about app development without the need for in-depth coding skills. To date, the program has primarily been aimed at K-12 students, but it is also useful for post-secondary students interested in creating their own multifunctional apps.

The launch of the program comes as both K-12 schools and higher ed institutions look to better prepare students for an increasingly digitized job market through workforce training programs and other initiatives to familiarize students with emerging technologies.

“Appy Pie’s goal is to democratize the application development and help everyone, irrespective of their learning abilities, budget or technical expertise create their own unique applications,” Abhinav Girdhar, founder and CEO of Appy Pie, said. “However, getting the next generation of app developers accustomed to no-code app building is crucial if they want to utilize our software. That is the goal of our student app developer program.”
