Your First Technology Decisions: Workshop at District Hall

June 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

It’s a common situation: someone with deep personal experience identifies an unsolved pain or untapped opportunity that they know could be prime for a game-changing web or mobile app. But – they aren’t technical so don’t know where to start. As part of District Hall’s workshop series, we have partnered with Chris from thoughtbot to bring you an informative workshop where he will discuss:

  • Do we need a native mobile app, or can we just have a website?
  • What are the languages and frameworks folks are using to build apps, and why might we choose one over another?
  • What are the options for hosting our apps?
  • What choices can we make that will help us get our software in front of real users as quickly as possible?

This workshop is ideal for anyone who is less-technical but would like to have a basic understanding of what options and tradeoffs exist when making early and foundational development decisions.
