In this workshop, students will learn the basics of developing an MVP, including the concepts of agile development. Students will have an overview of the common frameworks and resources for developing web and mobile applications and learn how to collaborate with other students using Github. The workshop also includes a practical session in which students form groups to try to make a simple clone of a popular app (with the use of APIs) by collaborating with other students with Git.
While the workshop is considered an entry level class for people with a technical/engineering background, understanding the basic resources available to develop an MVP will also be an interesting concept for business students / personnel.
