In this episode of the PE Geek Podcast, we switch focus and talk about the world of app development. In particular, I share how & why I chose to start building applications without having any prior experience & what I've learnt along the way. We also touch on the different ways that emerging technologies have made it possible for literally anyone to build their own app using nothing but click and drag functions in the cloud.

If you've ever had an idea for an app or are simply interested in how we wound up building over 100+ apps in the last few years, this episode is for you.
