When you’re building an app, why build and maintain your own server-side data management systems, storage, and operations when someone else can do it for you? Why get bogged down in the boring bits when you can do all the fun stuff, the client side programming, and leave the rest up to someone (or something) else? Or, if you’re the brains of the operation, why get backend or full stack developers on board when all you really need is front end devs?
Google I/O 2014 introduced a new version of Android. Apart from the nice mobile UI design there are many other cool features I like. Google has a very cute tradition of naming each version after a dessert item starting with the subsequent letter of the alphabet. As a developer, I had a chance to check out the preview version and I wondered what the delicious name would end up being–lemondrop, lifesaver, or liquorice? We now know it as Lollipop!
The years 2009 and 2010 have been crucial for the evolution of the mobile developer market and software engineering jobs. Most engineering students chose to learn Java, Android, PHP, or .Net for their careers. Generally, iOS (Objective C) was not as common. Why? Remember C language, Pointer? Those engineers were afraid of *. To be honest, I was one of them! Now, I have become an iOS Developer and am a big fan iOS.
