Take a few weeks or even months coming up with this idea and then figure out how to design it into software. It doesn’t have to be completely original. If you can look at existing software and figure out how to improve it, that’ll work too.

You basically need a list of websites for programmers because that’s where you’ll find all the pieces that you can put in place. Once you’re using tools like Stackify, you are ready to roll.
