Newbies Guide To Making Software
Step 1: How to Get Started:
The most important thing you need to have is a goal – in this case, what kind of
software you want to develop.
An Unlimited Marketplace – It’s Not Just Microsoft
There are tens of thousands of software products introduced each year by
developers large and small. These run the gamut from every kind of personal
entertainment product to utilities, to specialized business software of almost any
kind, to applications designed to super-charge or unlock special features of other
software or make them work better.
Actually not only is the majority of new software not developed by big companies
like Microsoft, almost all real software innovation is from smaller firms, since they
have the impetus and flexibility to be adventurous in their thinking and to move
quickly without layers of management, funding, and outside stakeholders causing
delays and offering opinions.
You may well not make billions with software, but software can be a fine
supplement to many kinds of online businesses.
Filling a Need – Or Defining One
Chances are if you are thinking about developing some software products, you
already have some idea of who you want to sell to.
While the possibilities are really only limited by your imagination, let’s take a
moment and think about major software buying audiences and major categories
of software by type that it can make the most sense for a small independent
developer to work on.
