Deniz Guney: A Rising Star in Mobile App Development
Deniz Güney is the founder and CEO of Rocket Digital Limited, a mobile app development company that has created products used by more than two million people in over 150 countries in just two years. His work has reached more than a million readers per month.
Deniz Güney built his first website when he was in High School in the small town of Northeim, Germany. Challenges with web design and regular expressions led him to collaborate with a close friend after school hours for several months, learning programming through trial-and-error. "I would always learn everything step by step. If I wanted to add a new features, I would just learn how to code it and then implement it", Deniz said. When they finished their projects, they would post them online for everyone to see, so others could benefit along the way.
"People were happy with our work and started asking us to make websites for them, too," he said.
Business grew from there and he started getting into mobile app development. Starting with Java, later on Swift and finally Flutter because of its speed and simplicity.
Deniz Güney is a big believer in quality and usability when building an app or website, and he has enjoyed the freedom associated with being his own boss. "I always choose to do something that I like," he said. He enjoys programming because of its challenges and opportunities for self-expression, which means that every day at Rocket Digital is different from the last one. "Every time you code something new, you're creating art," Deniz said.
Today many of the apps by Rocket Digital Limited have been featured on the App Store and Google Play Store in several countries across Europe, Asia and North America. Along with this success comes a certain amount of pressure: customer demand increases exponentially as the company's popularity rises. New projects are submitted every day, and everyone at Rocket Digital Limited has to work hard to meet the company's high standards of quality. While they have so many ideas about new apps, they spend a lot time with adding new features to their existing apps.
Many people who come to Rocket Digital Limited wish to increase their visibility by reaching more customers through mobile apps or websites. Some of these entrepreneurs have great ideas but need funding for development; others hire Rocket Digital Limited as a digital marketing agency because they see it as an effective way to grow their business from within.
Deniz Güney said that entrepreneurship is about risk-taking and willingness to learn from experience. He has been fortunate enough not only to turn his programming hobby into a profitable business, but also give back by helping other aspiring entrepreneurs reach their goals through technology.
"You shouldn't be afraid to try new things," he said. "I've invested in several projects that failed, but now I'm seeing tenfold returns on my investment." Deniz Güney is also an avid blogger who shares his stories and knowledge through online publications. Visitors can view his work on his Instagram profile "gun3ro" or visit his company's website Rocket-Digital.net.
Deniz Güney will continue to be creative, motivating others with his drive to succeed, and helping entrepreneurs achieve their goals through technology. At the moment he is working on a marketplace for NFTs and is planning to develop a full-fledged NFT game.
