The creation of any application follows a well-known path or at least comprises certain elements. This session takes a look at each of these steps and discusses how as a stand-alone developer you can approach each one.

Each stage looks at the techniques and tools that can help develop an application and the questions and decisions you need to process on your development journey. With each step, tool and technique there are skills to be acquired. Compiling a list of these tool, techniques and skills, that are next on your list to learn, stop you feeling overwhelmed.

No two people will need or take the same path, it is knowing and understanding the path you are taking that enables success.

  1. The content of the live stream for building Java applications was very useful. I walked away learning that I should scale down my ideas and level of effort to something more manageable for a solo-dev to accomplish, use the full SDLC steps to my advantage even though I might be working alone, and some great tips on how to approach testing for a small project. Overall I would definitely recommend the course to others.

  2. Enjoyed the webinar thoroughly! I learnt that starting small and having achievable goals and sticking to the standard process will give the confidence to move forwards.. Also, the fact that this course helps to achieve a complete deliverable product rather than something that works just on you PC is a huge +. Absolutely recommend this course to all the aspiring/budding solo developers.
