Top Mobile Development Courses Online

25 June 2018

The world never seems to have enough apps! There seem to be apps everywhere, for everything, and for everyone. A prime offshoot of Internet technology; apps are the easiest way to help people to actually do things without automation. An app may not do the work of a robot, but it can do enough to help you with umpteen things, like reminding to make a phone call, telling you how many calories you burnt during your morning jog, which cinemas or restaurants in your locality are good, and well, unlimited other things.

Well, how is it to be at the forefront of these apps, or rather to put it literally, how is it to be at the backend of all these technologies that power your way in your daily life? That is really what a career in mobile development really essentially is about. Imagine being a mobile developer who can tailor technology to suit a huge market, or to make life a tad easier for people with specific problems. What you need to get there is to learn mobile development. There is just simply no dearth of mobile development courses anywhere on the www, simply because the growth of mobile technology is not exactly growing; it is exploding. Well, if a market that started with it first download exactly a decade ago, in 2008, could reach nearly 150 billion downloads globally in 2018, is there any word to describe such a market with? As of 2017 beginning, Google Play had made nearly three million apps available on its online marketplace!

Don’t such figures that make one drool push you into finding online courses for mobile development to enroll into? Why online courses? Simple: they are simple. when choosing courses, make sure you lay your hands on courses that are flexible, are certified, are taught by well-known experts, are current, and are offered by reputable learning platforms. I can think of an online video library that meets all these criteria with effortless ease: Simpliv.

Simpliv has excellent online mobile development courses that can be of tremendous value to your career in mobile development. I would recommend these top five mobile development courses online:

At this very practical course, you will be working with the phone hardware and interacting with the same real-world API's that professional developers use on a day-to-day basis, such as Google Places and Google Maps.


5.      Committing errors in the code can traumatize any professional. One small misstep or oversight is enough to kill countless hours, not to speak of the utter handwringing and chaos it causes to everyone concerned. All that preventing or resolving such issues needs is tips, tricks, and techniques that will help you to approach debugging in a strategic manner.  This is what this course teaches you.
