Mendix 10 FAQs

  • Why did you merge Mendix Studio and Mendix Studio Pro into one IDE?

    After pouring through customer feedback, analytics, and user trends, we decided to merge the no-code Mendix Studio and low-code Mendix Studio Pro into a single IDE to best serve the modern enterprise.

    Mendix 10 seamlessly blends the simplicity of Studio with the powerful Studio Pro. With the best of both worlds in one IDE, teams no longer need to decide whether to use Mendix Studio or Mendix Studio Pro.

  • Are you abandoning citizen development?

    No. Citizen developers are a crucial part of the app development process, and we’ve optimized Mendix 10 to better support business and IT collaboration in a single environment.

    Our refreshed IDE includes the no-code features business technologists love—like the theme customizer, simplified data filtering, and starting from an Excel spreadsheet—plus advanced low-code capabilities for professional developers. Mendix 10 also includes new tools like Epics and Portfolio Management to further streamline cross-functional collaboration.
