I made this course so that you can learn how to build apps. I love builing stuff, and I think you'll do too. Creating something, and then taking a step back, and saying: I made this! – that's the real deal.

That chat app? I built that. I wrote the code, the comments, the documentation. It's a real nice piece of tech and I'm giving it to you, so you can create something awesome. Let me know what you've come up with!
