Developing a very simple app
I'm a newbie, and I need advice on the following issue: I would like to create a domain-specific dictionary and share it for free as an app.
I don't have any programming skills but I see there are tons of dictionaries around, and in their most basic form they are just a set of terms along with their definitions. So the idea would be to just take a free source code and customize it, assumed that I would provide a database (or whatever preferred form of structured data) with the terms.
I don't have the money to pay a professional programmer, so the question is -- isn't there anyone (e.g., students) who could this for a very tiny budget? can you suggest any strategies?
I need to know whether such a project may be accomplished, before starting to develop the content (i.e. the terms along with their definitions).
Please be aware I'm neither minimizing the technical skills nor underevaluating the role of professional programmers.
I will be happy to receive any suggestions and/or comments.
