If you’ve ever thought about creating software or wondered what it would be like to run your own software company, you’ll be interested in this.
Last week Ben Prater contacted me. He told me he had just put the finishing touches on a guide that could teach anyone how to create software — even if they’ve never touched a line of code.
I was pretty skeptical. I thought software was the domain of experienced programmers.
But Ben persisted and sent me a review copy of his new guide “Software Secrets — Exposed!” I was curious, so I begin reading the book. And I have to say — I was quite impressed. Ben really knows his stuff. He’s a former CTO (Chief Technology Officer) and an “in-the-trenches” programmer.
What really caught my eye is that Ben wrote this book specifically for people who never thought they could create software. He realized that many of us (as parents and teachers) have just the kind of experience needed to make great software products for kids, students, schools, homeschoolers and families.
In fact, since I read the book, I’ve started a notebook of several children’s software products that I’d love to put together! And I will be returning to Ben’s book as I work on turning my software dreams into software reality.
If you’ve ever thought about creating your own software — you’ll want to get your hands on this guide.
Here are some of the things included in Ben’s guide:
– His way of generating solid software ideas, including turning your hobbies or experience into a profitable software business.
– He describes a simple technique called “Blueprinting” to get your software ideas down on paper.
– How to build a compelling Web site that will help you to successfully market and distribute your software.
I talked to Ben and asked if he could set up a special discount for our readers, and he finally agreed.
