Why is App Development interesting?
Christoffer Martini Tybjerg, the CEO of mobile app developer Fifium and the guest speaker at our App Development from A to Z course, tells us what he finds so fascinating about app development itself.
"I am passionate about app development because my goal is to help people create better businesses. Equally, I want to create whatever solution I can to make life easier for people on a daily basis. In the future everything will happen on your phone. We already see it with banking, real estate, shopping and healthcare. Hence, there is still space for many businesses to grow their revenue by adjusting to the digital market. We live in an era where time is increasingly precious; people want easy access and quick solutions to their demands, questions or problems. In my view, this is best offered by apps. Apps enable us to manage our lives better.
But developing an app is not an easy task. It must be functional, accessible, beautifully designed and easy to use for anybody. A poorly developed app offers zero solutions. To me, creating an app with unique features is like painting a picture. You take what's in your mind and make it alive and real. We have so many unexplored technical options and our capabilities keep growing.
As a developer, having an attitude that anything is possible therefore creates the best ideas and the very best apps. Yet, this is also a challenge to entering the market. You need to learn how apps are built. It’s not like a shoe where you always know what kind of materials are needed. Developers need to understand the market - what people really want right now - and their customers, the businesses.
I love having this dual role. As a developer, you both help companies create new digital strategies to increase their profits, but you also have a real-life impact on the people who download it. Finding the perfect solution each time; a product that makes financial sense and which people are willing to buy, download and use is what keeps me fascinated about app development.
