WYOA – write your own app

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.
