iOS Square app question
Hello iOS Comunity. I am kind of new to programming but experienced in business and I want to hire a couple of programmers in my country. The point why I want hire them is to create a similar app like SQUARE. My question to you is what kind of programing knowlege do I need to ask. The app will be for iOS but it will also be based in web. So some requirement ideas would be great. Thanks in advance guys and keep learninig :)

If you plan on developing for iOS, you'll need to at least know about iOS development. Treehouse has courses in both Objective-C and Swift. In order to get it on the web, you'll need to know about front-end web development, which Treehouse also has a course. It also wouldn't hurt to know about web design (another Treehouse course), but that's optional. To get these things to talk to each other, you'll also need a backend web server. You can pick just about whatever language/framework you want for that, but my favorite is Python with Flask. When you're handling sensitive stuff like users' money, you'll definitely need to know a lot about security for all of those things, which Treehouse doesn't teach about directly, so you'll need to do your own research on that
