Dictionary Term

Citizen Developer


A citizen developer is an end user who independently creates business applications from existing software and running environments built by businesses. Citizen developers can create these applications on their own or with collaborators, most often with the intent of sharing the apps with others.

Some experts in information technology maintain that the role of the citizen developer will grow to the point that many IT departments will depend on them to develop applications, and to address needs and projects that IT departments haven’t anticipated or don’t have time to build.
