Into the Mind of the Nerd

How hard is it to build and publish a native app? All those technical decisions -which language, which framework, how many developers, what skill sets are needed? The options are mind boggling, especially for a non-technical entrepreneur --- that is --- until this May 13th panel.  

Into the Mind of a Nerd [May 13th]:

Join us as a team of developers build, design and publish an app in 59 minutes or less while the entire process is narrated for non-technical attendees.

That's correct!  A full explanation of each technical option will be explained at each fork in the development path. 

The Speakers/Developers: 

• Dave Shanley 

• Cody Garvin

• Jackson Gariety

This will be a very innovative panel not to be missed:

• Massively accelerate your technical understanding of developing apps

• Enjoy food and beer [for free...]

• Network with some interesting Portland innovators. 

Space is limited - Event is free - RSVP is required.

    This format was a very cool way to show the development process. I wish the developers' screens were bigger though. A great way to end this season of IIM! Looking forward to the fall.

    Great overview of what's involved in building an app, pointing out key but often overlooked items such as validating the market, defining the problem and UX. Good review of languages, frameworks and other development options.

    It's a little too technical for me but if I can help any of you with auto, home, life or business insurance, or retirement plans/rollovers, please contact me. I'll be happy to help -- no cost, no obligation, no pressure.
