• What I've Learned from Making my First App

    On June 9, 2018, at about 2:30 AM I was woken up by a huge thunderstorm. I am a pretty good sleeper typically, but this time I couldn’t go back to sleep. For some weird reason the idea of an app came into my mind. It was a silly little thought, but I just couldn’t let go of it. It was the perfect app idea I was looking for: fun, had a very easily defined audience, it was fresh and topical, and the best: it was incredibly simple! I, with my limited coding experience, could probably finish it in a few hours. After an hour of sleeplessness, I decided that 3:30 AM is the best time to sneak out of bed, go into our dining room, open my laptop (RIP my eyes) and start a new Xcode project.
