Mobile Development Course Descriptions
More people now access the web from a mobile device than from a personal computer. As the use of mobile devices expands dramatically, users expect to have access to websites regardless of device or size. The result is a significant increase in demand for mobile developers with experience using platforms such as iOS and Android. Our Mobile Development courses focus on design and development for iOS and Android mobile device applications, games, and utilities. The courses are designed for application developers who want to create, manage, and deploy mobile applications to Android and iOS mobile environments. Our curriculum is designed to teach you skills that directly apply to real-life IT jobs. Our proven instructor force and new state-of-the-art facility set the SLU Center for Workforce and Organizational Development apart from other training programs and facilities.
