Topic: Converting Ideas to Apps
There is no dearth of ideas on how to make life simpler by automating tasks, organizing business data and intelligence or tracking events. In this session we discuss the process of converting ideas to apps and how you can make money doing so.
But what are apps? What does it take to develop one? How long does it take to develop one? Can I do it on my own? Are there tools available that will let me develop the app? How much does it cost? What do I do when the app development is complete?
The presentation will answer these and many other questions that you might have.
