Try Mendix for Free

Where Do I Start with the Mendix Platform?

You can sign up for Mendix here. This will create a Mendix account for you, and you will have access to the Mendix Free Edition. Free Edition means that no credit card is required, and there are no setup fees.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be given an onboarding tour and can download Mendix Studio Pro. This low-code development IDE enables everyone from business users to experienced professional developers to build advanced apps. In Mendix Studio Pro, you can build complex integrations, extend your application with custom code, or use more advanced features like external entities.

If you hit a problem, the documentation at Mendix Docs and free online training materials at Mendix Academy are always there for support as well as the new AI assistant in Studio Pro: Mendix Chat. If you prefer a more human touch, then there’s the Mendix Community.


What Does the Free Edition Offer?

The Mendix Free Edition includes everything you need to design, build, and deploy demos, prototypes, or small applications. All the features in the Mendix Studio Pro IDE are available without restriction. This edition includes a free deployment environment for each application to the Mendix Cloud.

The Free Edition is designed to provide developers and business users with a rapid cloud deployment option for prototyping and testing new applications, without having to provision a full cloud node.

And it doesn’t expire, so you can take as much time as you like.


How Can I Quickly Start With My First App?

The Mendix Platform comes with a series of starter apps, which provide all the scaffolding needed to get started building your first application.

Starter apps combined with ready-made open-source components downloaded from the Mendix Marketplace, such as theme packs, UI templates, and logic will help to further accelerate the delivery of your first app.

You can even invite more users to your new application after publishing it with one click to the deployment environment supplied in free edition.

Can I Invite my team?

Sure you can! In fact, we recommend it! Mendix is designed for business-IT collaboration. You can invite as many team members as you’d like to the Free Edition. They can join in on development or you can invite business users to investigate the Portfolio, Requirements Management, and collaboration tools as well as Digital Execution Practice (DEP) resources.
