You Can Still Write Code If You Want To
Crowd Machine technology is extensible. If you’re a developer who likes to write code, you can write your code in your language of choice, express an interface to it using a RESTful API and then call your API from the Crowd App Studio.
You can also build RESTful APIs using the Crowd App Studio and call them externally from your traditionally built Apps. Either way, the result is a much faster time to App delivery.

Crowd Academy // Introduction
This is where your journey begins, with an easy-to-understand introduction for people without any experience in programming/development. Throughout this module you’ll be taken through app fundamentals, how they’re structured and what they do. This lays the groundwork for building your first app in Base One.
Crowd Academy // Terminology and Crowd App Studio
In Base One you’ll learn about ‘Patterns’ and ‘Activities’ and all the other basic terminologies for how to structure an app in Crowd App Studio. You’re also introduced to the Knowledge Suite where you’ll find answers to any questions you may have about building apps. This is where you first visit the Crowd Academy forum and join the ever-growing online community.
Crowd Academy // User Interface and Application Structures
Once you pass through Base One and get a strong understanding of the basics, you’ll move into building your first data structure for a commercial application. We’ll guide you through building a product catalogue and an ordering system – introducing you to core skills that you will need for app development.
Crowd Academy // Rules, Rules, Rules
In Base Three, you’ll learn how to to use ‘Rules’ – a natural expression language to implement advanced functionality into your applications. Rules are a critical aspect of Crowd Machine’s no-code approach to application development. By the end of Base Three, you’ll have learned how to implement rules that provide the functionality for the structures that you built in Base Two.
Crowd Academy // Integration and APIs
In Base Four, you’ll learn how to configure your application to communicate with an external system. Crowd Machine uses Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to integrate and exchange information with third-party systems. What you learn in this module will give you the ability to create an app that is capable of integrating with external services such as Google, Salesforce, Twitter, and many more.
Crowd Academy // Application Data Visualization and Page Designer
Now it’s time to learn how to use Crowd Machine’s powerful reporting tools to present your application data in an intuitive and business-friendly manner. Having the ability to report and visualize application data is critical in today’s rapidly changing business environment. You’ll complete two modules using Crowd Machine’s Page Designer and learn to design a user interface for a commercial application.
Crowd Academy // Advanced Business Applications
By now you’ll have a strong understanding of what goes into an application and how to build one from scratch. So, in Base Six you’ll learn how to build an advanced business application that’ll teach you about topics such as security, portal development, navigation, and data import/export techniques. This will set you up for success in Base Seven and ensure you have the ability and knowledge needed to complete Crowd Academy.
Crowd Academy // Design and Build an Application
Utilizing everything you’ve learned from Crowd Academy so far, you’ll now design and build an application to achieve final certification. After you’ve submitted your app, you’ll be graded and given feedback. Upon successfully completing Base Seven, you’ll be a certified Crowd Machine developer.
This is where your journey with Crowd Academy comes to a close, but your future as a certified no-code app developer has just begun.
