How to Become a Mobile Developer?

Every day millions of people are using millions of mobile apps. This market constantly grows up. Mobile developers are one of the most wanted IT guys. Such guys could become a millionaire or even a billionaire in a year, like those one who created Instagram. You can’t be taught to find an idea for an app – all is in your hands. You’re coding your app, if it works fine – you’re on the right way, if not – your place in Apple Store will be taken by someone else. That’s not an area of study that has to be taught for years in college. All you need are desire and practice. We have collected some sources with the help of which you can study how to create a mobile app.
