So You Want to Be an App Developer? Here's How [INFOGRAPHIC]

So You Want to Be an App Developer? Here's How [INFOGRAPHIC] | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
So, you want to be an app developer? See how in this infographic.

 

Apps are in. There’s no denying it. Seems everyone these days has a great idea for a mobile app: apps to find food, apps to find rides, apps to find more apps. The list goes on.

 

But just how do you become an app developer anyway? As with so many paths to success, there’s no one rote way. But there are some common, helpful and progressive steps to turn your great kernel of an idea into reality, or land you a gig with that hot startup you’ve had your eye on.

 

A degree in computer science or software engineering is a very strong foundation. Alternatively, there are specialized courses you can take that are geared toward mobile app development specifically. Getting certified in different aspects of development will only make your case stronger to employers looking to hire. But the best way of all to prove you can build something great? Build something great!

 

To do that, you’ll need a well-rounded skillset, including UI design, familiarity with a range of programming languages, backend computing knowledge and — this one’s very important — some savvy business knowledge. Once you meet your goal, though, the hard work should literally pay off; the average annual salary for employed app developers in 2011 was nearly $90,000, according to one survey. And by 2016, the total revenue from consumer mobile apps is expected to top $50 billion, according to some estimates.

 

The online education portal Schools.com recently surveyed the app landscape, and pulled information from a variety of sources around the web to put together the infographic above, which serves as a primer for aspiring developers.

Up To Consumers?
I am not sure what they mean by, "It's now up to consumers," since we want mobile wallet and other mobile money features but TelCos have been slow to modify their networks. Do I want to be able to buy a Coke with my phone? 

Yes because I shouldn't have to have CASH ever now. I haven't used cash in weeks add my elimination of cash to millions doing the same and you would think some of the apps featured in this infographic would be here already. 

Square is kicking it and destroying banking in the process. Who will step up and finish the banks all the way off? Not sure but they will be Mobile, Social and Hostile.
