Who should attend: Public
Hosted by: Polsky Center
About: 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 hands-on exercises that will teach you how to look at an application from an information-storage perspective.
Once you can do that, you'll see how a lot of the infrastructure of most applications is the same, and once you know what information you need to manage on behalf of your users, you can get 90% of your code written just by using off-the-shelf boilerplate.
You'll get a chance to do just that using a tool that we've developed for AppDev students. We'll then discuss how to evaluate and approach the complexity of that last 10% based on the unique requirements of your idea.
