My first job was designing and building real-time multi-players virtual world. I published a book related on the same topic by the experience I gained.

As an IT developer, we create values and sell them.

My golden time to build things is from 7pm to 1am at night. The time that I free my mind from my school/work.

What values we can create? How about recording some sound effects to sell? How about creating web site templates? Or powerpoint templates? May be writing a 10-pages PDF e-book? There are lots you can create and share.

Although I used money as a messurement. Remember that great products always come from your passion and hobby. I built lots of things because they are all my hobby. I have passion to keep creating things I love. And thus this creates a motivation so that I can solve any challenges in front of me.

If I am not doing all my stuffs with passion, I won't learn so much things.

Play and do experiments often.

Don't be afraid of mistakes. Learn from the mistakes.

Remember, The day you get your product done is the day 1. It's the beginning.

If you need to get start, lecture CS193P from Stanford is a great resource.

Once your apps get approved and on app store, make user to update them very often. Fix bugs, improve copy writing, new improvements, whatever. Just upload another build once the last build is approved by Apple.
