Certificate in Mobile Application Development

Will having a Certificate in Mobile Application Development improve your marketability? Consider this.

Mobile application development is positioned to be a major growth industry in the next decade. Growing use of smart phones and other mobile devices drives a high level of demand for developers who are prepared to create applications for devices running on multiple operating systems.

Beyond initial application development, every new phone model must be tested for compatibility, providing great opportunities for additional work from application developers. Estimates vary, but it appears that between 35% and 45% of Americans currently use smartphones. That is an increase of nearly 60% from 2010. As that trend continues, there appears to be ample growth potential in the market to drive demand for mobile application development for years to come.
