So You Have an Idea for an App?

Getting from Concept to Launch

Join us for an inside look at what it takes to go from an idea to a fully functioning iOS App. Artist and App creator Seth Carnes deconstructs how he successfully conceived, designed, and launched Poetics, an app with a 4-star rating that is used in over 150 countries. In this seminar, you will learn what it takes to get started, from doing a gut check about the viability of your product to registering with Apple’s iOS Developer Program and safeguarding your intellectual property. You will gain a better understanding of the importance of working with a team and creating a solid App Spec, business model, and code base. Most importantly, you will be inspired to perfect the “wow” value of your app, which will help you to attract both investors and future users.
