From Windows to Android and to Apple, develops a wide range of apps based on category and interests of the audience. These attractive apps bring a rich set of capabilities to be feasible, highly scalable, globally available mobile apps.

Mobile app is developed by computer programming professionals to run on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. Many companies sell mobiles with pre-installed apps such as web browser, calendar, mapping program, and a customized app for buying music or other media apps. Other interesting apps can be downloaded through the browser by paying certain amount that include whats app, share it, and various games.

Isn’t this interesting? Thinking to make a career in mobile application development? Let us discuss the requirements to starta bright career.

A degree in Computer Science is not strictly mandatory, as many companies prefer Bachelor’s degree with certifications in any of the programmeming languages. Depending on what is it you want to be, may be programmer or developer, there exist various platforms to learn coding. The major platforms include Android, Apple, Windows, Symbian, and RIM. To develop an app for these platforms you must be aware of any of these languages- JavaScript, HTML, CSS and perhaps PHP for interactivity. Focusing mostly on building a mobile appthen explore and learn Objective-C for iOS and programmeming using Java for Android.

Most recommended programmeming language for people who wants to make a career in mobile application development.

  • C:Is the most basic and widely used languages. C language is the foundation for other languages. Learning the fundamentals and keeping a watch on how it interactswith hardware will give you the proficiency in debugging, memory management, and write efficient coding.
  • Java: Being the second most widely used programmeming language, practices Object Oriented Principles (OOP), which are used in C++, Perl, Python, and PHP. Java language requires lots of manipulation to computer parts like file system, graphics, and an advanced programmeming that can work on any operating system.
  • Python: This language is fun and easy learning due to its simplicity yet great capabilities. Writing of this code is easy with good programmeming style, requires less time, less lines of code, and less concepts to learn. Beginners can learn this quickly.
  • JavaScript: It is the enhanced programmeming language yet simple. It requires less time to set up and get started as many browsers have built-in JavaScript. You can begin with loosely coded lines to see immediate results of your code.

These are not the only programmeming languages necessary to become a mobile application developer, but these are the most basic languages to begin your career. You can pick other languages like HTML, OpenGL, Animation, .Net, and much more based on your interest and role.
