From Crash Bandicoot to a smarter inbox with Dave Baggett | NNL Podcast 025
 
55:59
Subscribe to the Novice No Longer podcast and never miss an episode! http://novicenolonger.com/itunes How many unread emails do you have in your inbox? If you went all the way back to the very oldest unread email, do you think you’d actually need it? If not, why is it still there? When are you going to do something about it? Email itself first came on the scene circa 1993, alongside Windows NT 3.1 and massive brick phones. Since then, our computers have evolved substantially — and just look at our smartphones — but our email inboxes remain mostly just a big dumb bucket. Dave Baggett is using machine learning to bring your inbox up to speed. He’s the founder of Arcode, creator of Inky email client (iOS, OS X). Dave shares the interesting story of how Inky came to be, starting with working on the first two Crash Bandicoot games and then joining a travel startup that would end up taking over the industry (and eventually get acquired by Google). He’s got an interesting story and a fresh take on email. It’ll make you think about your own projects differently. Here’s what we chat about: - How Dave dropped out of MIT (he was working on his Ph. D!) to develop the first Crash Bandicoot came - How Dave transitioned from the gaming industry to the travel industry - What it’s like to have the Department of Justice review your acquisition for a full year - Behind the scenes of Dave founding Arcode and creating Inky - Inky’s false minimum viable product, and what they learned from the early feedback - How Dave’s experience coding games helped him with his future projects - Why Dave prefers low-level languages, and how he still gets in there sometimes even today - How ITA Software grew, in both vision and scope - How ITA Software took advantage of being on the cusp of a huge revolution in travel booking - Why Dave decided to tackle email, a notoriously difficult field - How Inky battle’s people’s paranoid that real email will get stuck in spam - Bringing machine learning to your email inbox to help you get the information you need - Why email clients make it really difficult to build an MVP - The first action Dave took after having the idea for Inky - The two major challenges currently facing Inky This episode originally aired on Novice No Longer: http://novicenolonger.com/crash-bandicoot-inky-email-inbox-dave-baggett/

Subscribe to the Novice No Longer podcast and never miss an episode! http://novicenolonger.com/itunes You 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.

Building an app business not just a product with Dan Counsell | NNL Podcast 032
 
49:43
Subscribe to the Novice No Longer podcast and never miss an episode! http://novicenolonger.com/itunes What is one of the biggest mistakes made by aspiring app entrepreneurs? Confusing a product with a business. If you build and release an app, you’re selling a product. What happens when sales dwindle? Do you have a plan for sustainable revenue? Dan Counsell is the founder of Realmac Software, creators of applications such as RapidWeaver, Ember, and Clear. He’s been in the software business for a while now, and has learned some extremely valuable lessons along the way. In this episode, he shares the story of his very first piece of software, and his shock when people started sending him money for it. He also walks me through the design, development, and launch of his most recent app, Clear (which I personally use every single day). The app is available for both iOS and an OS X, and he talks about why all developers should be targeting both App Stores. This episode is about creating an app business, not just a product. This episode originally aired on Novice No Longer. http://novicenolonger.com/building-an-app-business-not-just-a-product-with-dan-counsell/

Better Products Through Storytelling With Donna Lichaw | NNL Podcast 028
 
58:18
Subscribe to the podcast and never miss an episode! http://novicenolonger.com/itunes Storytelling has been a part of the human experience since the beginning of history (one of the reasons that we even have history). Our brains are wired to respond to stories — whether it’s an urban legend told to us around a campfire as a child, or the tale of an obese man who lost weight with an all-Subway diet. Donna Lichaw knows a thing or two about the importance of narrative, having studied film for both her undergrad and graduate degrees. She now uses the power of the narrative arc to build compelling products that engage the user by leading them through a carefully crafted experience. She’s worked with companies such as Seamless, Citi, Bloomberg, and Atlantic Records, diving into the user experience and building products that stick. This episode is amazing. My favorite part is when she applies the narrative arc to an app I’m working on, and we get to see the entire process in action (starts at 52:45). Here’s what we chat about: - Donna’s film studies background and how it’s colored everything else in her life - Behind the scenes of a documentary film, and how it’s like the discovery process for building products - How teaching shows you how much you really know - How Donna has adjusted to working with a personal assistant - How to make sure that you’re getting quality work from your assistant - Why everything needs a build-measure-learn cycle - The different forms that a Minimum Viable Product can take - The one question you should be asking yourself if you have an idea for a new app This episode originally aired on August 7th on Novice No Longer: http://novicenolonger.com/better-products-through-storytelling-donna-lichaw/

The Non-Programmer's Guide to Getting an App in the App Store

Learn more and sign up at http://novicenolonger.com/getting-an-app-in-the-app-store/! Do you want to create a mobile app but have no idea where to start? Have you been searching for a "technical co-founder" but feel like developers speak a different language? This class will teach you, step by step, how to get an app in the app store, no programming knowledge required. Building an app is fun but challenging, even without writing a single line of code. In this class we'll work together flesh out the nitty-gritty details of your concepts and transform them into a solid game plan for getting an app into the App Store. I'll be your guide into the app world. I believe that anyone can create a mobile application, but sometimes it's hard to know exactly where to start. I know, I've been there. After trying and failing numerous programming books, video courses, online tutorials and an NYU iPhone class, I figured out exactly what non-programmers need to know in order to create their first mobile application. The format of this class is a workshop — you should come to class with an idea and class time will be spent actually applying my methods to your app.

A Carefully Crafted App Launch with Tapity's Jeremy Olson | NNL Podcast 030
 
49:23
Subscribe to the podcast and never miss an episode! http://novicenolonger.com/itunes It’s easy to look at somebody like Jeremy Olson and think, “wow, this guy came out of nowhere and just dominated the app scene!” His created his first app, Grades, while still in college, and it won him Apple’s prestigious Design Award in 2011. From there, he founded Tapity, an app development company that just launched its newest app Hours. He’s also the co-author of the popular App Design Handbook. But creating a beautiful product is only one step in the process of releasing successful apps. In this interview, Jeremy takes me back to the beginning, and shares how he used a journal-like blog to make industry connections and build an audience before he even knew what he was doing. He also talks about turning app releases into launch events, which explains why Hours was covered by almost every major tech news website. With over a million apps in the App Store, app success really is all about the launch. Jeremy shares exactly how he does it. Here’s what we chat about: - The failures Jeremy faced before his public success - Jeremy’s thoughts on Apple’s new programming language Swift - Where the inspiration for Jeremy’s first app Grades came from - Jeremy’s original challenges with Objective-C and how he finally broke through - Why Jeremy isn’t afraid of having any of his ideas stolen - Making interactions not just usable, but “delightful” - The “marketing” work that Jeremy did before he launched his first app - What “launch day” looks like at Tapity - The power of an email list - Why teaching is so important, especially in the tech industry - Jeremy’s advice for people with an idea for an app but no app experience This episode originally aired on September 25, 2014 on Novice No Longer: http://novicenolonger.com/carefully-crafted-app-launch-with-jeremy-olson/

Growth hacking Guides.co with Franco Varriano | NNL Podcast 027
 
51:46
Subscribe to the podcast and never miss an episode! http://novicenolonger.com/itunes The growth tactics you use when your company is just starting out are different from when the company is a few months old. They change even more as the company grows to handle more and more users. Applying the wrong growth tactics, at the wrong times, can be just as bad as not acting at all. Today, I have Franco Varriano of Guides.co on the show. He shares how Guides.co started as a company called Startup Plays, and the exact moment when it grew into its current form. As the company gained momentum, Franco has been there to guide its progress — fostering communities of both guide authors and users. He shares some of his insights on this week’s episode. Even if you just have an idea, Franco has insights about how to collect the most valuable feedback. This is a great episode for entrepreneurs of all levels. Here’s what we chat about: - How Franco became a “growth hacker” - The “innovative hub” where Franco got his start - The problems that inspired Startup Plays, which eventually became Guides.co - The one early-user communication tool that’s so often forgotten - The moment when Startup Plays became Guides.co - The interactive component that makes Guides.co different from other online how-tos - How to get feedback when all you have is an idea - Getting those very first users - Using hired help to test your website against different use cases - What is “digital marketing” and how it’s different for individuals and businesses This episode originally aired on July 18th, 2014 on Novice No Longer: http://novicenolonger.com/growth-hacking-guidesco-with-franco-varriano/
