Help me decide what app to build?!
Go to many idea's! At this point I change my mind every other second between thinking I've to the next million dollar app and to why do I even code.
What to build next?
1 I got this dating app idea where people find each other through a profile matching algorithm, but do not see pictures of each other yet. They chat first. Like Blind Dating on your mobile.
2 A textual corporate takeover game app, where you're an Acquirer and based on simulated economic properties you can acquire companies. Thinking of a detailed simulation where you've go to deal with news, sentiment, customers, employees, stock, value, etc. Buy companies, risk it all kind of thing.
3 A chatbot Assistant which makes calender events, looks up the weather for you, etc.
4 TheInterviewer. A app that helps companies interview people (for jobs). App provides a structured way of interviewing people and keep notes of applicants to review later. Never forget.
5 None of the above6
I am about to switch careers completely to become a iOS/Swift developer. What a journey it turned out to be...
Besides the fact that I just bought a house and am about to get my first child, I had to do it.
My current job just doesn't feel right anymore. After 7,5 years the culturefit is gone.
Besides, I really love programming for many years now and I fell in love with Swift about a year ago. Spent many hours programming a day, reading blogs, watching vids, building my first complicated App. A few months ago, I wondered why I didn't pursue this path earlier.
I spoke to three different company's... They all wanted to move further, but just one company really felt right. A small business of 5.
After we met, they asked for a second meeting, a code presentation. I ever did this before, so it was weird talking about the code I wrote. Definitely different that just coding it alone.
The last and third time, last week, I asked them what I would be doing, projects and how they lead the small company of 5. We had a great meeting and agreed that I start september 1st.
Now I'm just waiting for the contract to come through! Its been 7 days though. Starting to get a little worried. I really want this!13
To many ideas, not enough time! Never can decide to spend time on learning to code, reading books about coding or work on my coding projects! And about that, I've got to many good App Idea's. The ultimate struggle.
Need... To... Have... Focus.5
