    Write your own app (WYOA) refers to the trend of employees who look for ways to build apps for their company or employer. Usually the person is not employed in a professional programming or software developer job role, but is often self-taught and willing to create apps that will improve specific job functions or tasks. Employees who participate in DIY app writing are often referred to as citizen developers.
