Journey to the Apple Design Award: My first App
First things first, When I started this journey 5 years back, I had no contacts, zero experience selling software, no college degree in programming or UI/UX designing. The only assets I had was – a MacBook Pro, an iPhone and some desire to create beautiful apps. Today people across 150+ countries use my apps, and I just received an Apple Design Award. Thanks to Apple’s AppStore and a huge shout out to the Apple community for being passionate, inspiring and helpful.
Ever since I received the Apple Design Award, a lot of people in the media titled my journey as “How a small town guy with no college education on programming or designing went on to win an Apple Design Award.” Since then I have been bombarded with “How did you get started?”. This blog post is an answer to that.
