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

Hi Michael I know those things in general but I was asking for more detailed requiremnts for the developers I want to find, cause I dont want to learn on my own I just want to know what level iOS developers should I hire. Thanks again for the answer :)

Sorry, I misread your question, then. I'd say hire people in all of those fields, but make sure they're security-conscious

No problem. Yes those I understand but in what kind of proffesional level do I need the developers. I want in depth technical explanation thats what I am asking. Thanks again :)

This is greatly a beginner's forum, so in-depth technical explanations are rather out of the scope of this forum. Not many people here would have the knowledge or experience to answer your question. I'd recommend going to a place where far more experienced people hang out, like Quora

Ok you are probably right. Thanks again :)
