Mobile is certainly all the rage today. If you’re a developer and aren’t building mobile apps today, then you risk falling behind your peers. And if you’re already creating mobile apps, then you need to continually update your skill set to stay current with the latest technology that seems to appear daily. In either case, don’t worry — you’re in luck.
Throughout the month of June, visit Developer Force for fresh content that will help you start or advance your career as a mobile application developer. To supplement our existing library of mobile app development content, we’ll be publishing new articles and blog posts to help you learn about technology such as jQuery Mobile, PhoneGap, Sencha Touch, Appcelerator Titanium, and Mobile Components for Visualforce. We’ll also be running a couple of live events online, including a webinar and a CodeTalk to round out mobile month.
Once you learn all this great new stuff, why not put your new skills to the test? Without giving anything away, we’ll be running a couple of contests around mobile application development that you won’t want to miss — great prizes and fun for all. Check back in this blog tomorrow for a more detailed announcement about one of our contests.
