Session Agenda

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.
