Recent reports by Enterprise Mobility Exchange came out with the startling facts that the demand for mobile app development will surpass the capacity of 5:1 by the end of 2020. In simple language, it means that for every 5 mobile app development job opportunity there will be only one qualified developer. And simple rule about the demand and supply, when the demand increases and the supply is not able to meet the requirements, definitely the salaries will go sky high. In this article we will see how long does it take to learn app development.
But the real confusion is that can I start learning it now? Will it take too much time to learn? If at all I start learning will it be worth after a certain point of time. All these questions are quite normal when a person who has literally no experience in a field looks for some opportunity in the same. So in this article we will see how long does it take to learn App Development.
Now when it comes to deciding how long will something take, we first need to know what path we are going to go on. Ok then, lets take the path which would be a little easy for a beginner. Every mobile app development path needs a coding language. So we will talk about Xamarin with C# coding language. Why Xamarin? Because this is the most in demand mobile app development in the market. It allows a person to develop dedicated and cross platform apps. Be it android or iOS Xamarin serves all.
If you at all have a certain background in the field you will definitely be reducing the overall learning time. But as majority of the people are going to be learning from complete scratch in that case also the time is not that long. There are certain criteria which applies differently on different people.
Say, you are of a very persistent kind. As soon as you began you had so much fun that you started putting a lot more number of hours than normal people. You will surely be progressing faster than others.
Or say, your goals are much higher than others which require you to learn in much more detail, so yeah you would be taking a little longer.
But if we were supposed to give you a approximate time that you might need to learn app development, it would come around 6-10 months including both learning as well as implementing. And if you are a really dedicated and consistent person you might even publish your first app within a year including learning.
