Lowcomote -Training the Next Generation of Experts in Scalable Low-Code Engineering Platforms
Sprache der Bezeichnung:
Low-code development platforms (LCPD) are software development platforms on the Cloud, provided through a Platform-as a-Service model, which allow users to build completely operational applications by interacting through dynamic graphical user interfaces, visual diagrams and declarative languages. They address the need of non-programmers to develop personalised software, and focus on their domain expertise instead of implementation requirements.
Lowcomote will train a generation of experts that will upgrade the current trend of LCPDs to a new paradigm, Low-code Engineering Platforms (LCEPs). LCEPs will be open, allowing to integrate heterogeneous engineering tools, interoperable, allowing for cross-platform engineering, scalable, supporting very large engineering models and social networks of developers, smart, simplifying the development for citizen developers by machine learning and recommendation techniques.
This will be achieved by injecting in LCDPs the theoretical and technical framework defined by recent research in Model Driven Engineering (MDE), augmented with Cloud Computing and Machine Learning techniques. This is possible today thanks to recent breakthroughs in scalability of MDE performed in the EC FP7 research project MONDO, lead by Lowcomote.
