FOR EVERY STARTUP

If your project for a startup is an app
and you need to build a first prototype to distribute and test it in real conditions

CODAPPS will enable you to create a fully functional app. You will be able to make your startup project visible, to show it to future customers or funders!

CREATE AN APP FOR ALL DEVICES

Get your app in the hands of all users

In this MOOC, we use a free tool called CodenameOne with NetBeans to create a single app which deploys to all major brands of phones and tablets. Your app gets listed on Google Play, Apple App Store and Windows Store.

SIMPLE TO LEARN

Complete beginners are welcome

Creating mobile apps does not need to be complicated. New tools help you go a long way without coding, and we will teach you the remaining steps in an engaging and fun way. A bit afraid of coding? You are definitely welcome here!

JOIN THE CLAN

Activate your city with CODAPPS!

Online learning is even greater with local interactions. We created CLAN, the CODAPPS Local Ambassador Network. Participants have the opportunity to organize meetups in their city to meet other CODAPPS participants and get feedback and tips about developping mobile apps. We support local ambassadors with a toolkit full of helpful resources. Click here for more details!

A BUS TOUR

Will you help us promote CODAPPS?

We have the project to take a bus to meet local communities in different cities and present them CODAPPS: students, startupers, social innovators... and tell them how easy it will be to create mobile apps with CODAPPS! We need one or several partners to make this bus tour happen. Curious to see which cities will be visited? click here for more details!

BEHIND THE SCENES

CODAPPS is a course by Prof. Clement Levallois at EMLYON Business School

This course stems from the observed fact that 90% of startup pitches start with "Our idea is an app", and 0% of the pitchers know how to code an app. This usually leads to the slow death of the startup.
We want to change that by putting in the hands of entrepreneurs, young and old, students or employees or unemployed, the ability to create and release their own app.
For free, and without any technical pre-requisite.
This is an initiative by Clement Levallois, who teaches the digital transformation of societies at EMLYON Business School, supported by Jimmy Brumant, student at I.D.E.A. and President of We Are Smart Up
