Looking to get started in App development but really unsure where to start. Can someone give me a rundown on what I need to be familiar with to get started? I am currently looking into Polaris right now, just wondering about other user experiences and some things that I might want to be aware of getting started.

Hi, I'd say keep your eye on the docs:

https://polaris.shopify.com/

https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference

- depending on language you'll develop review library that wraps api - https://help.shopify.com/en/api/tools/supported-libraries

 

Also there are some tutorials by shopify

- https://partner-training.shopify.com/my_courses

https://help.shopify.com/en/api/tutorials

 

There are plenty youtube tutorials too, but I have nothing to recommend there 

 

(Just noticed that you've some significant activity here so It should be easy for you to get in :D)

Thank you for the links. Yeah I'm pretty active on the Shopify Design forum. We just redesigned our company's theme from the ground up, I was completely new to shopify a year ago and as a new web dev found it fairly difficult to find relevant tutorials on how to work in shopify and how things worked(learning to track stuff down goes a long way...). Watching Kurt's intro to shopify that helped me get a bit of understanding on how things worked and since then I've just been learning liquid, jQuery and Javascript, working with the API, etc. So I spend a fair amount of time on here trying to answer other people's questions, because I know it was really a struggle for me -- plus figuring out their problems teaches how to tackle something similar in the future. I read a question and say... how DO you do that... I hope to be able to do the same thing with App development, but it  looks like I'm going to have to get fairly comfortable with React, which I have hardly touched...
