app development

I'm curious, if I wanted to try and develop an app for andriod or iphones, how would you even start?  
I mean are there kits, or do you just write something in java or something like that? so if you write it in java for instance, i assume you have to be a coder? or do you really have to be a coder?
for example, if you want to create a web page, i thought you could use something like dreamweaver when you don't really know coding but you can still create a webpage with dreamweaver.
So is there something like that to create apps but you don't know how to code.

Using something like Dreamweaver that will allow you to drag and drop controls on the page, you can make some fairly simple pages with little or no experience. It really depends on what you need the app or site to accomplish.

There are web templates that help you make some nice looking sites with little or no experience too. Joomla, Drupal, and Wordpress are just a few templates that are good. All have many free templates, but if you want something customized there are folks that will do that too.

JQuery mobile has app templates too, but I have never used them. http://www.adobe.com/inspire-archive/may2011/articles/article4/index.html?trackingid=IOZGV

Of course with all of those, the more training you have the more elaborate the app or site can be. There literally is no limit as to what you can do with some training.

ok, so it looks like you are saying that there are app "kits" but they are limited, so to make really good apps you need training.
so, what training would i need?

Hello!

I started with another kit called Codename One, where you can generate your app for different OSes.

The training you need really depends upon what type of development you want to do. Continuing education is very important in the programming world as it is changing daily.

I found this site with some good training resources. It would be a good start.

Once you learn one language or tool, the others are easier to pick up. Building objects, database connections, and so forth are similar across platforms. It is all about syntax once you can write code.
