Objectives of this Unit
The main objective of this unit is to gain hands-on practice in SAP AppGyver. You put into practice all the concepts about app development, low-code / no-code, citizen development, and business processes that you have learned so far in this course.
The objectives of this unit are straightforward; you will:
Work hands-on in SAP AppGyver with all the concepts my teammate Akseli showed you in the last unit.
Create a functional mobile app that you can test out on your own device.
Put these skills into practice for your future no-code projects.
This unit is slightly different from the previous units, because we are moving away from theory and getting hands on with citizen development. There are still videos, text, and diagrams to help you learn, but the main thing you do is build your first app while you follow along with the lessons.
The app we’re going to create is a simple barcode scanner that shows nutritional information for various food products. To make that happen, we’ll go through the following steps:
- Make a plan.
- Create the user interface.
- Implement the logic.
- Integrate an API.
- Gather and display the data.
- See it all work together.
Prerequisite Tools and Resources
The resources we’ll be using for this app are SAP AppGyver, the OpenFoodFacts API, and some regular food products found in the kitchen.
