So I’ve had this idea for an invention in the back of my head for a couple months now and recently I’ve decided to try and pursue it. A problem I have is my invention would take a good amount of building and coding and I don’t know how to do either. I’m currently in my first year of college and I’ve been going back in forth deciding if I should find engineers and programmers at my school to help me or if I should take the time and learn how to do it on my own. Another problem is I don’t know at what point I should try and get a patent. I’ve had family tell me to try and get a patent as soon as possible and I’ve had people tell me to build it first before spending my money on a patent. I would also appreciate it if anyone could suggest a book that would help me get a better understanding of how to bring my idea to life.
