Why I Learned How To Program Web Applications As A Businessman
When I had the chance to ask one of the founders of Investopedia what courses to study if I wanted to be an entrepreneur after business school, it was recommended to me to take some courses in computing science and programming. I felt the pit in my throat after hearing that!
It wasn't until after a few more businesses courses that I decided to follow the advice. I wanted to be able to implement the ideas I was learning in school and that required spending a lot of my free time programming, taking some computing science courses and doing a certificate program in web development.
Over the past few years I have spent a lot of time learning from other startups. It is nice to think all you need to do is build a product and put it online, but the reality is that there are a lot of common pitfalls startups face when it comes to marketing. Some of the pitfalls include having long development times between product releases, thinking that having a larger pay-per-click budget guarantees success and that your followers on social media are all in your target market. I realized it is a real advantage to be able to build what the customer values and that requires being able to change the product after receiving real feedback. It takes a few years to become fluent at creating custom web applications because it takes a lot of typing code out as well as project management skills to turn an idea into a product.
