Low-Code App Builder Class feedback
I think the course on low code App builder is very well done... The whole product is a great tool to quickly build the POC(Proof of Concept) type of application while minimizing any kind of errors. The use of built in functionality for views, datatypes dataobjects, fields fieldgroups and complex types is phenomenal and brilliant..I do think that this course is very useful for SA, but I do believe that there is a little bit of disservice to more seasoned developers SSA and LSAs so not sure that this course should be a requirement..
The use of video solutions in the course is a nice touch.I am pretty sure that even LBA's should be able to use APP studio to be able under LSA supervision quickly create solutions...
I really enjoyed it. Perhaps one suggestion i might have is for LSA's taking this course adding links for more complex things that are often needed, external db integration, ldap, apis, agents etc...
Thank you for the feedback! I'm very pleased to hear of your positive sentiment of both the App Builder mission as well as the product capabilities.
I would like to address your point about how applicable the Low-code App Builder mission is for the more experienced SSA or LSA developer. First, we've structured the curriculum so that even the more experienced developers new to Pega start their learning journey with Low-code App Builder where we cover core concepts such as case types, life cycle, stages, steps, data model, views, SLAs, etc. All those concepts and capabilities apply and are prerequisites as one continues their journey into the SSA and LSA missions.
Second and perhaps more importantly, Pega's approach to application development is to collaborate and involve a greater number of individuals from the business. This is what makes App Studio so powerful in that it surfaces the application being developed to the business making application development much more accessible to citizen developers. As a result, Pega advocates the use of App Studio for all developers and to use Dev Studio as a compliment when necessary to implement features with deeper technical requirements.
