The market for mobile apps has skyrocketed in recent years, and with fast-paced growth comes rapid change. For mobile developers, who face both the promise of success as well as the threat of advancing technology that renders their creations obsolete, it can be difficult to keep track of which skills are the most important to master.

However, these are important details to know, especially those who are seeking new jobs and are intrigued by growing career opportunities in Houston. That's why a recent article on Run Mobile listed 20 mobile development skills that are in high demand.

The article cites a recent report by Dice, which listed the 20 skills that IT recruiters and others who are seeking talented mobile developers are looking for. These include Java, SDK, Objective-C and HTML5 skills. In fact, this blog has already featured a post about the importance of becoming proficient with HTML5.

"Javascript and popular library, JQuery are tied together frequently in hiring managers' wish lists, while Informix and .NET may be a testament to companies trying to mobilize their current infrastructures," Dice President Shravan Goli told the news source. 

Java is important because it can be used to create native Android apps, and the majority of smartphones in use today currently run the Android operating system. Meanwhile, HTML5 allows for excellent mobile web design.

Depending on your future goals, these skills are worth pursuing, and will make you much more attractive when seeking to further your career.
