How can I make an app?

Episode 1320 (1:42:18)

Stephanie from Corona, CA

Stephanie would like to build an app. How can she find someone who can help her? Leo says that app ideas are a dime a dozen, and the trick is how to get the right person to make it and market it. There are great places to find a programmer. eLance is one such place. She should ask for references.

Stephanie should understand that most apps don't make any money and she could spend tens of thousands of dollars to make it. Leo recommends finding a good college kid who's into programming. Make them a partner and see where it goes. The app development game is fraught with peril, or she could learn it herself. Swift is Apple's new app programming language and they have training online.
