Who Is Using Low Code

How big is the need for low-code development? Who is using low-code development? On March 2, Dingding released a portrait of low-code developers: the post-80s and 90s in first- and second-tier cities are the main force in low-code development, but developers under the age of 20 and over 50 also account for nearly 20%. From the perspective of occupational structure, professional IT personnel only account for 20%, including corporate administration, HR, finance and other roles, which are the major players in low-code development needs.

This portrait is based on the results of the just-concluded DingTalk application development competition, as well as the data of DingTalk’s native low-code development tool Yida and ecological partners Tritium Cloud, Jiandao Cloud, Yijing Cloud, and Qingliu. According to the official data of DingTalk, the number of applicants for this competition exceeded 30,000, involving developers from different occupations such as IT, HR, administration, finance, and teachers. The winning works cover enterprise digital epidemic prevention, administrative office, business management, manufacturing, personal Efficiency improvement and life entertainment scenes.

This is the first time that DingTalk has held a low-code development competition with the ecological side after announcing its strategic upgrade to an enterprise collaborative office and application development platform. Ye Zhouquan, head of Dingding Yida, introduced that low-code development lowers the threshold for application development, making development based on business needs and personal needs more accessible. Dingding hopes to work with ecological partners to promote the trend of low-code development, so that tiny Innovation continues to happen.

The post-80s and post-90s are the main force of low-code, and non-IT personnel account for 80%

According to the portrait released by Dingding, the post-80s and post-90s are the main force of low-code development, accounting for as high as 66%, and developers under the age of 20 and over 50 also account for nearly 20%. Low-code developers cover all ages part.

Low-code is also popular with younger and older people due to its ease of use. Participants over the age of 60 account for 1.12% of the total number of participants, which means that one out of every 100 participants is an elderly person over 60 years old. application.

From the perspective of gender, the ratio of male to female participants is about 1:0.7. Compared with the applications developed by men, the applications developed by women are more life-oriented, such as "Afternoon Tea Together", "Slimming Check-in", "Family" Job Management" etc.

From a geographical point of view, first- and second-tier cities currently have a higher awareness of low-code development, among which Zhengzhou has the most low-code enthusiasts, followed by Beijing and Hangzhou.

It is worth noting that, from the perspective of occupational distribution, non-IT personnel account for 80%, and corporate administrative personnel are the largest demand for low-code development. Low-code development can solve digital problems based on business needs. Professional roles, including corporate administration, HR, and finance, account for half of the development needs.

Returning home during the Spring Festival and epidemic prevention have become the demands of all walks of life. From the perspective of the use of basic templates, the epidemic prevention template is the most popular; followed by the afternoon tea ordering template that professionals love most.

Grass-roots entrepreneurs, female white-collar workers in Beijing bleaching, and rural teachers are all developers

According to Gartner, the global low-code development technology market will total $13.8 billion by 2021, an increase of 22.6% over 2020. The outbreak of the epidemic in 2020 has further increased the demand for digitalization and continued to promote the popularity of low-code. Currently, low-code is welcoming a wider user base.

Ruan Yonghua, a self-proclaimed "grassroots scumbag" entrepreneur in Liuzhou, Guangxi Province, won the award in this competition with the application developed by Jiandaoyun. After graduating from junior high school, he worked hard in the electronics industry, from the earliest apprenticeship in a communication store to opening 26 mobile phone store.

Ruan Yonghua's exposure to low-code is a pain point from business management. Due to extensive management, when Ruan Yonghua opened 5 stores and had more than 40 employees, he found that the company was on the verge of life and death: the operation could not calculate the data, the employees could not calculate the performance, and the bigger the scale, the less money it could make.

In 2016, he moved the company to Dingding, and found the low-code development tool Jiandaoyun. After following the tutorial for a few days, he built the first simple application: invoicing management of mobile phones. After tasting the sweetness brought by digitalization, Ruan Guanghua taught himself low-code and built nine systems. Through these systems, the operation and management of stores can be quickly inherited and replicated, and the speed of opening stores is accelerated.

There is a female white-collar worker in Beijing who has rented a house in Beijing for 10 years and changed rooms 5 times. Based on her own pain points, she developed a "Beidrift Rental Collection" application on Yicheng "Drag and Drag". Through this application, rental groups can rate landlords and intermediaries, and set up a blacklist for information sharing. Tenants can record and video record each link in the rental process, and keep them online together with evidence such as contracts and fee vouchers.

Peng Long, a rural math teacher at Huanghua Middle School in Gulin County, Sichuan Province, learned Tritium Cloud by himself because the school was remote and could not find decent programmers. In the past 4 years, he has developed 43 software applications for the school in a low-code way, solving the problem of left-behind students. Dorm management and other long-standing problems. Peng Long said that as long as you are willing to learn, there is nothing you can't learn, and low-code development is not difficult, and you can get started with actual combat in a few weeks.

Just as Ruan Yonghua said, "Many of our contestants hope that through the competition, more people will recognize new technologies and realize that many entrepreneurial and management experiences can be replicated." He believes that new technologies have not only changed the way of life, but also It has changed the operation mode of business, teaching and other aspects. A "grassroots scumbag" can now become a developer, and can easily develop software for managing the company and change the life and death of the company.
