Developing OutSystems Web Applications

The Developing OutSystems Web Applications Boot Camp is an onsite or remote 5-day instructor-led course that introduces students to traditional web application development with OutSystems.  The course covers the fundamentals of developing responsive web applications, such as data modeling, business logic, UI design, screen lifecycle and much more, with a very focused hands-on experience in the OutSystems Development Environment.

By the end of the week you will be able to start developing your own traditional web applications. 

Also, you'll be able to take a shot at the Associate Traditional Web Developer certification for free!

Developer Boot Camp

What will you learn?

The fundamentals of traditional web development in OutSystems and how they can be applied in building responsive web applications. You will learn how to:

  • Create your data model;
  • Visually build your business logic;
  • Create amazing user interfaces;
  • Efficiently manage the screen lifecycle;
  • … and much more.

What do you need?

Your laptop with Service Studio installed. A few days before the Boot Camp, you will receive detailed instructions with all the information you need.

Although there are no mandatory prerequisites, for a smoother and more complete learning experience, we recommend following the OutSystems Overview and the Service Studio online courses, before attending this training. It takes approximately 30 minutes to watch the 7 short online videos.
