I duckduckgo "starting a software business" and got the following:
How to Start a Software Company (with Pictures) - wikiHow[^]
I'm glad their will be pictures. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

Here are the first steps:

wiki said:
1) Develop programming and business expertise. Obtain a degree in computer science by taking programming classes...
So, in summary, to obtain business expertise all you need to do is take some programming classes. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

wiki said:
2) Work for a software company in a management capacity. Strengthen your leadership and communication skills by managing people and bringing new software products to market.
But, you should also jump into a management role at a software company so you know how to order people around. Laugh | :laugh:
wiki said:

3) Generate a product idea. Develop an innovative product idea based on what you have learned and observed about the needs of end users.

Finally, you need a product so what are you sitting around for? Make one up! Big Grin | :-D

So that's basically all there is to it. After reading those steps you should have all you need. Laugh | :laugh: But for the slow learners among us, there are more steps in the article.

And there is a test!

Quote:
How can you make sure your product idea is viable? (choose only one)
[ ] Speak with experienced software developers.
[ ] Conduct market research.
[ ] Check to see if your idea has any patents or trademarks.
[ ] Create a business plan.
