Creating Software: How to Turn Your Vision Into a Software Application
Years of developing applications have shown me that we often skip the obvious. Whether we are IT professionals or someone that has an excellent idea for an application, it is easy to get distracted by the end product. This focus leads us to skip over details, and that often is the root cause of project failure or general disappointment with the process. This e-book provides some templates, checklists, and examples to help you make your vision a reality. The specific topics covered include:
- Getting Started and The Kickoff
- Writing Requirements and User Stories
- Designing Your Solution
- Creating a Clickable Demo
- Milestones and Project Plans
- Testing and Verification
- Securing Your Solution
- The Finishing Touches
- Declaring Victory and Shipping Your Product
While we have periodic blog posts here, our primary delivery platform for content is the Develpreneur blog site and podcast. We cover a wide range of topics including technical, management, team building, and software creation tips and tricks. The content is free and intended to help everyone working in or with technology.
Our White Papers
In our pursuit of solutions, we sometimes have to dig deep into a topic. Instead of letting that work be a one-off we create white papers. These cover a wide range of issues and will be periodically made available on this page. If you have any questions about any of these papers or their contents, please contact us. We are happy to clarify and correct where needed.
