    How to plan & manage an app build
    Hey guys. I've designed & built a functional prototype for a productivity application I want to build.
    I am not a developer. How do I break down an app build & understand the structure of the project in layman terms so I can find an appropriate developer (possibly also cofounder) and better manager the project when it begins.

    What are the main top level components to the project. Frontend, backend, DB/server, etc?. (the app is a platform)
    What are the best dev languages/skills to look for to develop those different areas?

    Also, I had a meeting with a developer recently who mentioned using React Native to role the initial iOS code out across Android & Web also. Is this an effective route?

    many thanks

    Going hybrid with mobile apps is a good way of also going cross-platform and using a smaller set of languages to build the entire system.

    React Native is a variant of React.JS that uses JavaScript to allow you to write mobile applications that actually become native code and thus you benefit from the performance of the underlying system. Using React Native means that you can have a version of your mobile app for iOS and Android from a single JS codebase. I've been using Ionic for a little bit which is a more of a HTML5/AngularJS system which sits on top of Cordova to get the native support.

    For a DB, we use PostgreSQL.

    Thanks Raz0rEdge. Any ideas for the outline of a general dev plan for ios? Just some of the key stages for me to start researching and get my head around?
