Every smartphone user interacts with at least a few apps everyday, with many of us jumping from Facebook to Twitter to Clash of Clans to Instagram and then back to Facebook all within the time it takes us to get to work. We interact with apps so much, many of us have rough drafts floating around in our heads for an app of our own, whether it’s another mobile game, or “Uber for X,” or a new social platform through which we can exchange ideas.
Unfortunately, the standard thinking is that in order to make it in the app world, you either need to know how to code, or partner with someone who does. But that’s not necessarily the case. While coding is an extremely valuable skill in moving any career forward in 2016, for those with big app ideas and not enough time to go from rookie to coding expert, Udemy is offering a course entitled The Non-Technical Person's Guide To Building Products & Apps that could be perfect for you.
The course is instructed by Evan Kimbrell, who has launched more than 100 apps over the past four years without knowing how to code on his own. He hopes to teach students how to find the right people to bring their project to life, and the skills necessary to convey their ideas to the coders they hire. He’ll also take students through the process of vetting their ideas to make sure they're the best ideas they have before they invest in them.
Pinterest, Snapchat, Amazon, and Alibaba were all started by non-technical founders. It was the people with the ideas, not the people with the coding skills, that started those companies and helped turn them into what they would eventually become. If you want to get your apps out there without spending 10 months learning to code in different languages, this class could help you take your next steps forward.
The Non-Technical Person's Guide To Building Products & Apps, $19 (originally $247), available at Udemy. [92% off with the code MARCHINSIDER]
