Recently, we caught up with the winners and finalists in the Code Warrior Contest, the ‘Magnificent Seven’ and asked them to share their insights of this wonderful world of App building.
We asked them what their learning had been at this one-of-a-kind App contest, and this is what they had to share:
Parth Lalcheta believes that sometimes building a prototype is good enough to start with, particularly if one has time constraints. He further says that ‘you can always improve it later. This way you can also get suggestions from people on ways to enhance it.’ Quite right, we say.
Darshan Kapashi says that he learnt how to make engaging, interactive, text based and user friendly interfaces, design good schemas and workflows. He even learnt to design modular, reusable and scalable code. Moreover, he learnt to track exactly what the user was doing with his app and where they were facing problems.
Vaibhav Saini believes it helped him to understand that an app should solve an existing problem; it didn’t matter if it was complex or simple.
While Mahalingesh was content to have understood the parameters he should keep in mind in the future while choosing idea for building an app.
Sagar Kadam confesses that he learnt that an app must be developed from the user’s point-of-view.
On the other hand, Bimal Jain learnt to explore problems, ideas and technical constraints from this contest.
Being first-time developers themselves, we asked them what their advice would be to other budding app developers.
Parth Lalcheta lays down, very categorically, that at first, one must try and find problems and think of ways how SMS could solve it. He advises to start with small things and gives the hope that one will eventually improve and make better apps. He also cautions not to think too much – he says, simply implement an idea with minimal functionality. Take feedback from friends/users and improve :)
Darshan Kapashi believes that once the idea and the design used to implement the idea were in the proper place, coding became relatively easier. A good design and insight into the problem at hand went a long way in making a successful app.
Vaibhav Saini, on the other hand, has just one-word to share – “Participate”.
While Ajay Chawda wants new developers to think about their idea carefully and thoroughly.
Mahalingesh M has a unique suggestion though for his fellow developers. He wants them to be innovative and try to build something which was cloud based instead of stealing ideas from the existing sites.
Sagar Kadam has a practical approach to it as he believes that new developers shouldn’t worry about hits but concentrate on developing an app as they would learn a lot from it.
Bipul Jain advises all new developers to stop worrying about the feasibility of the idea as app building is more about the technical learning.
Great ideas and great tips we must say. We hope that all you aspiring developers will take a leaf or two from this and use it to your benefit when you sit down to build an app yourself.
Thanks Code Warrior Stars!!! And New Bees, Good Luck!!!
