Hello Everyone

My name is Robert and I'm a dean/science teacher/technology coordinator at a middle school for the NYC public school system. I always seem to come up with ideas for apps/software that die out due to the fact I lack the knowledge to create it. I just stumbled upon this web site last night and I'm looking forward to learning the ropes and building my first of many apps. Seems like I've come to the right place from what I've read in other posts. Look forward to gaining knowledge from the members here.

Robert

We have a lot of teachers; in fact, we had a group called Buzztouch educators for a long time. I still have some of our work on a domain, buzztoucheducators.com, but I plan to let it expire soon.

I'll check that out- Thank you! I think the apps I want to create are too in depth for me to create using this technique. I couldn't even get my app to run in the simulator this past weekend. I also have three kids that require all my time when I am home and nothing will stand in the way of that as I'm sure other parents on here agree with.

Please don't give up! Once you get the hang of things, it all goes pretty easily. Did you have problems with iOS or Android?

And, with two kids myself, I totally understand where you're coming from!

So true. I would say the difficulty level is about the same as making a Wordpress website. The hardest thing is compiling the app, but there are some great resources to help with that. Mark's videos are the best.
