Who is a Citizen Developer?

A Citizen Developer refers to a user who creates new business applications for other’s consumption through development and runtime environments sanctioned by corporate IT. They are non-professional developers. Earlier, end-user application development was limited to single-user or workgroup solutions using tools like Microsoft Access and Excel. Today, end-users are free to build departmental, enterprise, and public applications using shared services, cloud computing services, and fourth-generation language (4GL) – style development platforms. A citizen developer can operate on many different platforms that enable them to create successful software, but the major characteristic of a citizen developer is that they create software packaged for enterprise businesses.
