How to Turn Your App Idea Into a Reality

Featured Image

joshsheadJosh Jordan has been building software applications for over a decade and has been a tech entrepreneur for nearly as long. He’s worked at massive corporations like Amazon and Vistaprint, but was bitten by a startup bug since working at Financial Diligence Networks, where he was one of two software engineers. Since then, Josh has founded two businesses of his own helping startups and small businesses build their tech products from ideas to scale. He’s worked on things you may use every day, like the Amazon Echo, and launched dozens of web and mobile apps. He lives in upstate NY with his wife, kids, and dog. Josh splits his free time between typical geek activities (serious board games and writing code for fun) and atypical geek activities (hiking and camping).
