CHENNAI: Considering the craze for smartphones in India, apps and app developers are in fashion. AdeptPros, a Mobile and Web applications and Solutions provider, has introduced GeniusPort, a company to train app developers.
On getting into skilling of app developers, Vishal Baijal, COO, AdeptPros, says, “It’s proven that mobile devices and applications are changing the way we communicate, do business and access news and entertainment. Enterprises, consumers and programmers have embraced this change. Especially for programmers, mobile apps development has become one of the most demanded and fastest growing IT careers for 2014. Mobile developers get a premium salary compared to a regular software developer who has the same amount of experience. However, even now it’s tough to find resources that best fit this industry. Developers should not only have experience but also be able to keep up with the changes in the field. This is a clear indicator that there is a gap in the demand-supply chain of human resources in this industry. GeniusPort is bridging the gap by imparting the skills and knowledge on ‘How to develop Mobile Apps’ to students, graduates and working professionals.”

The courses that span six weekends to three months will equip you with the terminology, concepts and best practices for coding mobile applications, help you develop the skills required to create applications for major mobile device players including Apple iPhone, Google Android and Windows Phone 8, teach you how to effectively use application architecture for a range of wireless devices via hands-on experience, increase your confidence by implementing applications from scratch using best practice principles; including object-oriented design and test driven development and help with acquiring the necessary skills to ensure mobile applications efficiently utilise corporate data or data available from external web services. The fees ranges from `25,000-67,500.
On opportunities in the field, he says, “The quick and expansive growth of the app market has created a huge need for employees, both for consulting work and full-time positions. Mobile App development as a career is promising and fast growing. If you are someone who is inspired by technology and fosters new and innovative software ideas, this is probably the best job for you.”
