Why is there so much buzz around App Developers? A 2015 article in Kiplinger provides a wonderful answer:
Why become an app developer? Check the palm of your hand (or possibly your back pocket or the couch cushions) for the answer. The proliferation of mobile technology is driving demand for development of new applications. According to Robert Half Technology, more than 70% of organizations are implementing some kind of mobile strategy, and they all need the tech professionals who can get the job done.
All of which makes us all the more excited to be offering developer Nanodegree programs for bothAndroid and iOS. These outcome-based and project-oriented programs feature curricula expressly designed to prepare students for exactly these App Developer roles, and we couldn’t be more excited about the massively growing demand. Plus, with industry partners like Google and AT&T, student are assured the skills they master will directly translate to employment opportunities.
