Inspirational App Developer
So how can Jordan Schuetz's story help you to become an app developer and why is he the flavour of the week. Firstly he's a serious Indie who's come from nowhere to create some innovative apps in a variety of genres: from his first gaming dev. of " Beach Ball Mayhem", Jordan has progressed through entertainment apps in the form of his very popular "Strobe Light" app that can be seen at numerous parties and concerts up and down the west coast.Moving on to a little dabbling in business apps which finally brought Jordan to his gem of a game " Annoying Pig Game". Certainly annoying to other developers as THE PIG is making his way to fame and fortune and all from the brains and keyboard of one very young and talented app developer.The Barne's and Noble Nook has also reaped the benefits of Jordan's talent with one of his most popular apps being his renowned  "Gun APP"

The reason that Jordan Schuetz-app developer extraordinaire- is our favourite up and coming dev. is not just that he conjures up great apps in multiple categories. Nor the fact that he is an Indie who is revving the enormously popular Corona SDK to the max. It's not even the fact that if you read up about Ninja Pig's rise to fame you'll find that Jordan loves connecting and is always willing to take his app passion and talent and help out others. All of that makes for a pretty exceptional guy in this lucrative and fast moving industry, but all of these reasons for featuring Jordan pale next to the simple fact that this mega-talented and popular app developer is only seventeen years old and still in High School!

Our industry is the new dot com revolution , with one fundamental difference-apps are here to stay. So to answer your question: "How do I become an App Developer?" Learn and follow in the footsteps of amazing people like Jordan Schuetz, that's how!
