🚨 Streams

1. UI/UX

The first step to starting with any app is prototyping. This is where the overall features are finalized along with an emphasis on design. User Interface in an App is one of the most critical aspects of the success of an app. Here you will think from a user’s perspective and come up with visual prototypes/ representation of the prompts that you choose.

2. Software Development

The 2nd step for any Tech App startup is to push forward in the actual development of the features of the app along with debugging and deployment. Here you will be working on the provided prompts. This is where we challenge your coding skills and knowledge of the front end and backend development.

3. Website Development

Everything can’t be put into an app! There are a lot of aspects that need to be presented in other forms. Be it an external portal for analytics or quick information, a website is always useful. Here you will be working on a website/web app based on the prompt you choose. We would definitely be challenging your web development along with front end skills.
