Important Certifications For Mobile Developers

Some great certifications are available for mobile developers and acquiring any one those certificates can add weight to your resume.

With the growing need for mobile apps, the demand for mobile developers has increased to a great extent. However, it is seen that mobile app team is generally smaller in the company. This is because a large number of companies are not able to find the best developer that has years of experience and hold great expertise in developing mobile apps. Mobile app development comes in two flavors such as Android and Apple’s Swift and having the best knowledge about any one of them with additional knowledge of Java and JavaScript can put your name in the good books of the company.

Certifications For Developers To Consider in 2017:

Android Developer Certification

There is a wide range of Android devices in comparison to iOS mobile devices. Apparently, getting an Android certification is the best thing if you are looking to make your way in the mobile development world so as to find the best job.

Google’s Android Developer certification can be attained through the developer certification site of Google. However, you should not sign up without essential knowledge so as to save yourself from wasting your precious time as well as money. On the other hand, Google has joined hands with Udacity in order to give a Google Developer Certification course, which can be availed at $99, which was $149 earlier. This means that if you are thinking to get Android Developer Certification, then this is the perfect time for you.

Swift Developer Certification

Swift is known as the development language of iOS. This language is a combination of C and Objective C and this makes it very much familiar to all those who are well-versed with rest of the two languages. However, the saddest thing is that Apple doesn’t offer a Swift certification and as a result you have to rely on third party certifiers.

In this regard, Coursera provides a five-week online course in programming for iOS with swift and at the end of the course mobile developers get a certificate from Coursera. However, this certificate is not as appealing as a certification straight from Apple, but this will also look good to some potential employers.

Certification in Java

Java is the best programming language that has gained strength with every single passing day and android apps make use of this language. Hence, learning Java can put you in good place for picking up Android app development. Thus, there is no exaggeration in saying that considering a certification in Java development makes sense and the certification can be obtained from Oracle.

JavaScript Certification

It is a simple and easy-to-learn language for mobile developer and you can get a certification by taking Microsoft programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 course. It is believed that if you are not looking forward to take a certification course, then you should undoubtedly learn the basics so as to reap its benefits.

If your objective is to transform yourself from a good to a great developer, then all the above mentioned certifications should be considered this year.
