OutSystems has released a free version of its Agile Platform Community Edition, providing developers with an easy way to create web business applications and explore Agile techniques without any vendor lock-in. The Agile Platform Community Edition is a full version of the Agile Platform for building web business applications that can be deployed into production for personal use or by small businesses with up to five concurrent end-users.
OutSystems says it is making a "no strings attached" version of its Agile Platform available to build a grassroots awareness among developers and drive further support and adoption of Agile development within the industry. At any time a developer can uninstall the Agile Platform without compromising their completed applications running in production.
OutSystems is also making available a series of getting started tutorials to explore the Agile Platform's complete capabilities for delivering rich internet applications. In addition the Community Edition comes with sample applications to help developers build and hone their web application development skills.
