Dutch National Police, Clifford Chance and Microsoft to Present at No-Code Now!

Betty Blocks announces the first speakers and workshop program for No-Code Now! 2020. 


For the fourth year running, Betty Blocks is organizing an event entirely devoted to no-code application development and citizen development. No-Code Now! will take place on 18 and 19 March at VUE Alkmaar, the Netherlands. Visitors can expect an extensive program with international speakers, the Betty Blocks Awards and an area devoted to the presentation of customer cases where organizations discuss how they use the no-code platform to address real-world challenges.

“More and more organizations are discovering the power and speed of no-code application development, including governments, banks, the legal sector and to give one specific example, the American football club Atlanta United. No-Code Now! enables us to demonstrate the opportunities the platform provides. We hope to inspire many people on these two days and help them get started on their own citizen development journey,” said Chris Obdam, founder and CEO of Betty Blocks.

Betty Blocks is currently used by 2,000 developers and 4 million end-users worldwide. The platform is being successfully applied by organizations such as football club Atlanta United FC, law firm Clifford Chance and telecom provider Tele2. Some of these big names will share their experiences and lessons learned to the general public on Thursday, 19 March
