Having just a business idea is usually never enough - you need to have the knowledge to know whether or not its implementable, what the technical challenges will be, or how to start with the implementation.

For this, you need to know the tools of the trade. Join us tonight as we show you what goes into building the popular apps you use, and how you can get started with building your own. This talk is especially aimed at people with product ideas who want to startup - it'll give you enough context to understand how to go about building your product.

What we'll talk about

  • The scope of software: why everybody should have some software development skill, irrespective of their field of interest.
  • Getting practical: how you can go from writing boring terminal apps in C, to eventually making apps like Facebook.
  • Frameworks and APIs: Understanding the common theme in all of software development - how everything works, in detail.
  • Quick demos of two famous JavaScript frameworks - ExpressJS (what people in BITS sometimes call NodeJS) and ReactJS
  • Prototyping: building your idea without having to code it.
