Like in NaNoWriMo you are not going to produce an app that will make you a fortune, or maybe even make it to the App Store. But what it might give you is the confidence that you can take a concept for an App from design, through to running on your device (or in a simulator). This will hopefully show you that it is possible for you to do App development. Even if itโ€™s just as a hobby and for fun. And if your App is useful you can spend time over the next few months maybe refining it and releasing it for others to use.

Ian also has a heap of starter links. And I have a truckload of books.

More important than a promise to anyone else is a promise to yourself. I’m going to do my best to work on this for an hour from 8 pm to 9 pm every night in December, permitting breaks for events, family and Christmas.

I’m entering it in my calendar right now. Who’s up for it?

  1. Would it be useful to link some random ideas for people to get inspiration from? I know some people who would do this except for the lack of a decent idea. Couldn’t hurt?

  2. As it currently stands I have been managing about an hour every other night on something. This could be a good thing in terms of giving me a tight time frame to actually produce something. #NaAppDevMo is a simple concept for my simple brain and might just work.

    Don’t be organising a show and tell on 1st of January though. Apart from the fact it is hangover day it is also Jacob’s birthday and I will have the joy of numerous screaming kids in my house. ๐Ÿ™‚
