As part of our series on 7 different products that can be created using the WordPress plugin programming framework, we are looking at a type of web app. Data-driven, web applications are software that helps businesses, corporations, non-profits, and government organizations collect, store, and analyze data. These are usually complex in terms of data storage and customer requirements. The programmer that has the right skill set can develop these applications for clients, and this can be a very lucrative business.
I have built many of these data-driven web apps for use by large organizations. The beauty of using WordPress is that you can make the app mobile friendly very easily. You also have access to a lot of useful database functions for storing and accessing any type of data.
I finish off the episode with a short coaching section where I talk about thinking outside of the product box.
