Create iPhone Apps That Rock: A Guide for Non-Technical Folks
You may have had this thought yourself or know someone who has: “I have a great app idea.” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. But ideas are a dime a dozen. It’s the execution that counts. So where do you start?
Well you might be surprised to understand that it doesn’t have to start with an engineering or computer science degree. What is required, is a desire to turn your idea into a reality.
I know of what I speak. I founded and ran a technology company that was backed by two prestigious venture capital firms in Silicon Valley – the Mayfield Fund and Sutter Hill Ventures. In the grand scheme of things, this means nothing. What is surprising about it is that I don’t have a technology degree.
What I am is a person with ideas and the chutzpah to make them happen. My defining trait is that I don’t believe there is anything I can’t learn and as a result, I’ve taught myself how to do a number of things, including create iPhone apps.
DIY: Easily Create iPhone Apps for Your Business Now!
And after building my app (gottaFeeling), I taught myself how to create an ebook about my experience so I could share what I learned with others. That ebook is called Create iPhone Apps That Rock: A Guide for Non-Technical Folks.
The ebook is packed with practical resources and tips, and steps you through the entire process from planning to marketing. It will also help you think through all the major issues you’ll encounter when you create iPhone apps, before you jump in with both feet. Further, if you’re an entrepreneur thinking through whether or not to extend your business into the mobile app space, this guide will help you frame that decision.
There are a lot of resources out there to help you think through mobile application development, but this guide will not only give you an overview and introduce you to the vocabulary, but also a large dose of encouragement. I firmly believe that if more women are empowered to create using technology, regardless if they’re “technical” or not, the world would be a better place.
Finally, I’m excited to hear about what the ebook inspires you to create, so be sure to let me know, and of course, do send me your feedback. You can find me on my personal blog: www.AliciaMorga.com or on Twitter @AliciaMorga.
