Get Your Game On at Gartner Application Strategies & Solutions Summit

/ November 14, 2018

It’s been fun to watch the Gartner Apps exhibitor ecosystem grow over the last few years. I think it’s a huge testament not only to the rapidly growing low-code and hpaPaaS market but also to the fact that enterprises are truly in need of a platform that allows for faster development across a wider range of development skills.

I’m particularly excited for this year’s event because Mendix is sponsoring a Low-code Arcade and Learning Lab – which will be exactly as it sounds: Half learning. Half fun. The typical Mendix way!

We all know the deal at tradeshows. You walk around the show floor, get scanned by hundreds of vendors, your inbox gets inundated with follow-up emails, and then we (most likely) never speak again because you don’t have the time to respond to every single email and phone call and there’s probably no chance you can remember what each vendor’s offering was. We didn’t want that to happen this time.

The Low-code Learning Lab is a dedicated space for you to experience the Mendix Platform, learn what’s under the hood, and get ideas for the types of applications you can build.

Mendix Low-Code Arcade and Demonstration Space
Meet the Mendix team at our Learning Lab at Gartner Apps.


We want you to walk away from Gartner Apps with the knowledge and attitude that you can have a significant, positive impact on your business and your developers by using our full-stack development platform. We also want to leave you with a positive impression, so that you remember us after the show!

We’ve broken out the Learning Lab into three sessions, and each aligns to the following priorities:

  • Easy livin’- We’ll show you what low-code is and how it can make your developers’ lives easier.
  • The art of the possible- Learn how the Mendix Platform integrates with existing systems and new technologies.
  • Make an impact- See how to not only make an impact on your business but prove the value of what you create.

As if all this information weren’t enough, we also want to give you a chance to win a great giveaway. Attend all three sessions throughout the event, and you’ll be entered to win a Nintendo Switch! (perfect timing for the holidays)

Bonus Level

Want to party up? In between sessions, we’re turning the demo TV into an arcade! We know that tradeshow floors can be a little dull, and that your feet are probably hurting from walking up and down the aisles, talking to all the different vendors.
