OutSystems, a global leader in modern application development, has announced new partnerships and programs that accelerate its long-standing commitment to education and building a diverse generation of developers.

With software needs multiplying for companies across all industries and an increasing shortage of developers, OutSystems is expanding its Developer Education Program to close the skills gap in development and technology.

OutSystems has donated software licenses valued at over US$10 million – partnering with over 2,300 universities across 40 countries, training over 58,000 students who completed nearly 68,000 online courses that resulted in the creation of more than 9,000 personal environments and close to 6,500 apps built.

In addition, OutSystems built a rapidly growing global community of more than 500,000 developers to foster on-going collaboration and mentorship.

“A core tenet of our mission to empower every organization to innovate through software is a dedicated focus on expanding the developer ecosystem and creating educational opportunities around the world,” said Paulo Rosado, CEO and Founder of OutSystems.

“We’re accelerating our education-focused initiatives to support the industry-wide developer shortage, with a specific focus on traditionally under-represented communities. The world will be a better and more equitable place when diversity and development combine. We all have work to do to create a more diverse, inclusive and vibrant developer community.”
