Everyone is different but can you provide recommended resources , online, classes and boot camps for someone living in South Florida and Asheville North Carolina? We work out of DC/VA area as well.
This is for myself and a colleague I work with - my research shows I need to begin with programming (foundational), then a boot camp on code and then I'd be ready for a class to learn how to create an app. My co-worker does not want to take that much time, she wants to know if there is an online class she can take to develop her own app?
Any feedback for either of us is appreciated! I'd like to know if there is a resource to do what she's interested in doing? Or if I am missing anything integral if I do the incremental approach. I am interested in creating an app for an idea I have ...Read more

Ok, I’m going to rap with you for a second and be brutally honest using my own personal situation. I’ve been coding for a while, since high school. But my level of interest was very tepid back then. When I was going back to school, many years later, I realized that the degree I was pursuing wouldn’t earn me a thing. I took back to coding, and this time I went in as a monster. Day in day out, non stop for months. I thought I was hot sh*t. Years after that I did a boot camp so I can finally jump into the field I wanted to do. I leaned the most important thing there in those nine weeks, I knew only the surface, it gets much, much deeper and much harder than what I’ve already understood.
Now to end my dietribe and answer your question, the answer varies based on your level of complexity your app is going to be. If you want to develop a “web site” only in app form, you should take a class and get some online resources from Treehouse, Lynda, or Udemy. If you want to understand (emphasis on understand) the complexities of developing a fully functional Internet service with a mobile user experience, I advise you to do a boot camp and commit fully. Make it your full time job for the duration. But if you want to have the full capability to develop and deploy a working, professional web service that takes in user information, queries effectively in and out databases, has a excellent UI/UX expierence that can be used in multiple platforms, you need someone who is trained specifically to handle those operations, a full stack developer( maybe even a few). I am an instructor at a company called Techlaunch down in South Florida, and we train those specific individuals I just described and it takes nine months...FULL TIME, and I stress all the time, “there are no shortcuts to this, especially if you are working in a professional environment.” You must think of scalability of your app and how many users you wish to have at the minimum and the maximum. A lot people think coding is something g learn in a time period, but it is an ever changing field and have to keep at it.
Hope this answered your question.
