Take your idea and ship it to the masses

About the Book
What's the difference between you and your friend who has an iPhone app in the App Store?
You probably have a pretty good idea. One that you'd like to do something with. Maybe you've had some ideas, forgot them, and only remembered them when you see your idea realized by someone else. Stop letting those ideas disappear or goto waste. Read Ship It! today and you can take your ideas and ship them to the masses.
Ship It! contains the processes, ideas, and actions that I have personally used to ship products. In Ship It! I will explain to you the importance of writing your ideas down when you have them. I'll cover why you should limit your feature set early on in order to release something referred to as a "minimal viable product." This book will walk you through taking that initial idea, writing it down, developing it, testing it, and finally shipping it.
With this book, I will help you bring your ideas to life so that you can ship them to the public.
