However, this time there will be no queuing and you will be guaranteed a seat for a nominal fee. Also, we pushed the start time back to 19:00 start so you can get there in time after work. We hope that you'll be able to come down and join us. Ever wonder how to take your app from idea to the App Store? Join our talk as we guide you through the entire process of app creation. From app idea through to making it an App Store sensation. We will talk about the workflow and the resources available for each step of the way, from wireframing to design, to beta testing, to monetisation and marketing so you can get up and running the easy way. This will be a step by step overview of the process. Paying someone to make an app is expensive, so you often need to do it yourself, but the hardest part is getting started. We’ll talk about how to make a successful app from start to finish and give you an overview of the best tools and resources that are available for each step of the way. That way, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Making beautiful icons, finding a clever third party library, or testing an app on multiple platforms is not difficult when you have the right tools.
