The Other Airmen: Low/No Code

22-24 September 2020

Summary

AF CyberWorx hosted a virtual tech discovery event, bringing citizen developers from across the Air Force to meet with tech company representatives and existing government programs to learn about what they could accomplish with low/no code applications. Seven companies and two government programs presented capabilities that are currently available to Airmen.

A key concern was how accessible the capability is to everyday Airmen. Citizen developers are the Airmen at the edge who see the need for a new tool or capability, but don’t have the time, knowledge, or access to advanced tools to implement their vision.

Problem Statement:

We need to raise knowledge and advocacy for citizen developers across the Air Force to create applications with little to no training to place innovation on the edge.

Next Steps

CyberWorx is supporting the citizen developers as they develop their use case solutions into working prototypes. The results will be presented to 16 AF Commander Lieutenant General Timothy Haugh in March 2021 as a proof of concept of enterprise Low/No Code usability enterprise-wide.
