say i have a decent idea for a piece of software but im only entry level programmer.
what can i do to take my idea further without sneaky jews monetising it asap?
Get a team if you have to.
Start with outlining the project and figure out how to solve the subproblems later.
If you can't do that, make a business plan explaining how it will work, who you think will buy it and how many would do that.
Take that plan to a company and get funding.
It is not any different than if you had a great idea and had a degree.
If you think you can do it while getting your education, make your own courses so you have time for it and use it in your bachelor/master/phd
If it's a web application, Ruby on Rails is easy to learn and does lots of the work for you. Use these to learn
Mobile app, iOS if you have access to Apple hardware or a hackintosh, or Android if you don't. No memes, I work in these platforms everyday.
I'd go with rails or node.js for the server, and maybe prototype the client (assuming desktop) in Java, and then pick a platform-specific SDK when you know what you're building better
Language should depend on the product.
If you talk a lot with the hardware, c.>>52648349
If you want efficient, c++ or Java.
If you want fast mockup, script it.
But don't focus on language.
Focus on the algorithms and the data structures you use.
Learning a new language is easy once you have a grasp of one.
Learn how to document your application and how to turn that into code is a better method.
>But don't focus on language.
Best advice in the thread, just start coding and failing, doesn't matter what language, writing as much code as possible is how you learn. You'll be pro in no time
