Why mobile development is such a great career opportunity

Posted by & filed under General-Localized, News.

Mobile is a new frontier in the computer world, where the best and brightest minds are gathering to experiment and see what can work on this exciting new platform.

Mobile development is seen as an increasingly profitable area. Just two years ago, in 2012, the mobile market generated $139 billion in spending. In 2015, it is expected to more than double that figure and generate more than $400 billion in spending.

And money isn't the only reason why this market is so hot—though it would be fruitless to pretend that money was not a major factor. Simply put, mobile is a new frontier in the computer world, where the best and brightest minds are gathering to experiment and see what can work on this exciting new platform.

As pointed out by a recent article on Technorati, many programmers are familiar with the technologies that make mobile development tick. These include HTML 5 and Javascript. However, these technologies are used in different ways on mobile devices, requiring a different set of skills to be implemented effectively. 

That's why an increasing number of companies—including those in Texas—are seeking out skilled programmers who already have some idea of how to use these technologies in new and exciting ways. A new focus has been placed on user experience and interactivity, as well as connectivity. As the news source noted, the next big consumer technology frontier will revolve around the Internet of Things, which will demand creative applications.

Those who think they are qualified to be a part of this should seek out Houston IT jobs.
