About this workshop

Many of us have had ideas for mobile apps float through our minds, and it’s entirely possible one of your ideas could turn into something great — but without the knowledge of how to create, design, and market your new app, it’s impossible for your idea to come to fruition. This workshop will teach you about the process of creating an app from start to finish — from learning about the appverse itself to development, design, economics,management, and prototyping.
