After a brief stint in the corporate world, Joshua Palmer decided to develop his own app, MyMotive, with no previous experience or relevant qualifications. What he learned along the way is invaluable for anyone who wants to build an app from scratch, but are worried about their lack of experience.

Joshua talks about how he nearly ended up paying an incredible amount of money for a product he couldn’t yet visualise. After reassessing his options and undertaking further research, he realised he had more choices than previously anticipated.

Using Odesk, Joshua eventually found a development team that could bring his idea to life for a realistic price.

Some key takeaways from the interview were:

  • Beware of astronomical quotes from local developers. There’s are websites such as Elance and Odesk to help even out the market
  • Always create wireframes for your proposed app. Having this plan in place prevents developers from deviating and removes any room for doubt and additional cost further down the line
  • Networking events are designed to be useful, but only if you attend them with a clear plan/purpose
