We need more Graphic/Web Designers, UX/UI, and other Creatives to join us. We already have tons of developers of every kind. Good engineering always needs good design to succeed.
BUILD is moving forward and establishing the infrastructure for this new, bold type of concept. take a look at some of the members who answered the call to serve on the interim leadership team, very impressive. There are many other qualified candidates that have recently registered to help build the foundation.BUILD Meetup Link:http://www.meetup.com....[/url][/url]What is BUILD?The idea behind BUILD is not really to be a meetup group, but the formation of a new type of start-up, with crowd-sourcing, lean start-up, crowd-funding, and other business principles at it's heart. One idea, one team, one solution at a time is what it's all about. Conceptualize, design, develop and deploy a new app, web service or product every three weeks. participants will share in the fun, excitement and equity of developing the next big thing. Meetup.com will be used as one of many recruitment tools to bring in new talent and as an interim mechanism to engage and schedule meetings/events for BUILD members.As an example, it took Instagram, an instant hit in 2010 two years to launch an Android version of their app, and they still do not have an official web app/portal available yet - which I think is a necessary component, at least for them to maintain a lead. If this was aBUILD project, perhaps all of the components to this platform, I speculate, could have been built simultaneously. Of course planning, organization is everything and certain business and development protocols/frameworks would have to be in place to accomplish such a feat. I believe, BUILD over time could establish routines to optimize the conceptual, design, development, deployment and support phases of a solution.What is BUILD Express?BUILD Express will use the same exact signature concept as BUILD, however it will supportexternal start-ups, entrepreneurs and other entities who have a project that needs to be developed and capital to spend to get it produced. BUILD Express will be deployed after BUILD's foundation, structure and a few projects have been successfully executed. Our framework, protocols and signature, secret sauce recipe for developing these new solutions have to be refined before BUILD Express could be launched.We get request daily from many entities seeking help with design and development projects. We are trying maintain Just Dev It as a non profit organization. So, it is only logical, that BUILD Express can assume some of work that these companies have to be completed. Plus it allows us to keep many BUILD members engaged and increase their income.We have 143+ members in the group now and growing. You would be very surprised at the amount of talent and resources that BUILD has accumulated so far, very impressive. We have even attracted the attention of potential investors, believe it or not.Join us, and be a part of a new type of community.
