026 : How to hire a coder without learning code

Dann BergYou have an idea for an app. Maybe you’ve even made some sketches or you have the full wireframes done. Now it’s time to hire a developer…but you don’t have any idea where to begin.

In this episode of the podcast, I share exactly what you need to do to get an app in the app store. We start with your mockups then move into finding a developer, communicating with that developer, and submitting your app. This is the entire process.

If you’re ready to finally get that app in the app store, listen in.

Here’s what I talk about:

  • The real goal of mockups and wireframes
  • My method for finding a developer that doesn’t use Elance or Odesk
  • Why you should never spend money on an NDA (but send one anyway)
  • Why your developer won’t steal your idea
  • How to tell if you’re getting quality code
  • What you need to know about agile development
  • Methods for submitting your app once it’s complete
  • The mysterious app review process
