Our story began at the dawn of the app store (in 2008) when our fearless leader, Jd Tueller, decided that he wanted to make an app to help him pay for medical school. So he swore off video games and used the extra time to learn all about this new technology and how it works.
Jd soon came to the realization that you are probably experiencing right now -building good technology is hard. Ridiculously hard.
For 5 years Jd journeyed through the dark, grueling paths of software development, design, and strategy, all the while leveling-up his skills, gaining experience, and gathering trusty teammates until November 2012 when App Raptors was formed.
