Take a walk down the street, ride a bus or step inside a restaurant. Chances are better than average that you are going to see more than one person with their eyes glued to their cell phone. As a developer, if you haven’t made mobile app development a priority for your business yet, this year it should be on your “must-do” list.
E-commerce is booming, thanks to the development of Apple Pay, Amazon Pay and others. This means that your clients will be looking to add a storefront app to their business. As a developer, you need to be ahead of the trend and ready to offer your clients what they don’t even know they need yet.
The good news for you is that even if you haven’t concentrated on mobile app development to date, you already have much of the knowledge you need. Java, Kotlin and Swift are all incredibly popular. If you are knowledgeable in one but not the others, learn them. You can always code in the language you are the most well-versed in while you are learning the ins and outs of the others.
Your clients are going to be looking for more ways to reach their client base. They are going to start turning their attention to mobile apps that make it easy for clients to make purchases and interact with their businesses. Staying on top of the trends and developing your skill set is going to be more important this year than ever before.
