Have an idea for an app but don’t know where to start? Feeling stuck, overwhelmed or unsure of the steps you need to take? I’ve got you.
After spending the last decade designing, building and launching a variety of apps from scratch, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to make a great app. For those who’ve never worked in tech, it can be an overwhelming process, but it doesn’t have to be. I’ve packed everything I’ve learned into this workshop so you can finally start and make progress on that amazing idea you’ve been thinking about.
In this immersive, one-day workshop, you will learn the process for making apps, from idea to launch. By the end, you’ll be armed with the process, terminology, and tools necessary to take the idea from your head to start building the first version of a web or mobile app.
Hi! I’m Kim. I’m an award-winning product designer, full stack developer, and chronic creator originally from Kingston, Jamaica.
Over the last decade I’ve designed, built, and launched multiple web and mobile apps from scratch. I taught myself how to code and grew as a designer because I enjoyed the end-to-end process of taking an idea from napkin to launch by myself.
I’m a maker first; everything else is second.
Before making the leap to start my own studio, I worked with top creative agencies and product consultancies, such as RGA, Ogilvy, and thoughtbot, helping startups and established businesses build their digital presence. Now under my venture studio, Bourn, I create stuff I want to exist, and help others do the same.
At the beginning of my journey, having a full time job and being new to code never stopped me from creating the things I wanted to create. What mattered was knowing my why and having a process. This helped me stick with it till the end.
Because of my work, I’ve spoken on the TEDx stage and at other events by Girlboss, AIGA and Girls who Code. My work has been featured in publications and podcasts such as CodeNewbie, Revision Path, and Giant Robots. I’ve served as a judge for The One Show, been a curator for NET Magazine and a front-end development teacher at General Assembly.
As your instructor, my goal is to not only teach you how to bring your idea to life, but to provide you with a framework for following through.
Only 6 spots available!
Yes! This workshop is meant to set the foundation for any type of app. That said, apps that include AR/VR, Mobile games, Algorithmic feeds, AI, Complex computations, data analysis or tracking are more complex. The information related to building or launching your app may not be applicable.
Nope! This workshop is geared towards those who aren’t technical, don’t know how to code, or don’t understand the end-to-end process of making an app. The goal is that by the end, you’ll have more technical knowledge than you came in with. You’ll be able to decide if you want to use no-code tools, learn to code or hire someone to do it for you.
Yes. In order to make the best use of our short time together, I’ll ask you to complete a few items beforehand that will help set the foundation for what you’ll do during the workshop.
You’ll receive the details of this pre-work a few days before the workshop. It should take 1-3 hours to complete.
You’ll need a laptop, notebook or notepad and a pen or pencil. There will be a few exercises to complete during the workshop.

“Kim walked us through the phases of planning, creating, and launching an app. I came in with no idea on how to start the process and left with the many options that I could implement immediately. I highly recommend.”
“Kim was fantastic. She was very thorough and was able to explain everything so that everyone with no coding or app experience could comprehend. I left the workshop excited about the process of app-building!”
“Great intro course to walk you through launching an app. Made the process much more tangible and “real” for me!”
