AppDev Primer with Raghu Betina

Learn how developers begin software projects, and even get started on a prototype of your own idea.

This workshop replicates the first day of class in Chicago Booth’s Application Development course.

First, you’ll go through a series of pen-and-paper exercises that will teach you how to look at an application from an information-storage perspective. Once you can do that, you’ll realize that a lot of the infrastructure of most applications is the same. Thus, once you’ve figured out what information you need to manage on behalf of your users, you can get 80% of the way to a prototype just by borrowing off-the-shelf code.

Next, you’ll do just that — generate a basic functional prototype using a visual programming tool that we’ve developed for AppDev students. We’ll then discuss how to estimate the complexity of that last, unique 20% required by your idea, and see a process for getting it built.
