Interested in this topic? Register now for our Table Talk at Microsoft Ignite!

I'm one of the MCs at an upcoming Table Talk session at Microsoft Ignite, focused on application development. We're talking about why we're excited to be an (application) developer right now - and I wanted to post this and encourage you to add your responses, attend our table talk, and share your own insights and questions around this question: Why are you excited to be a mobile (or fusion team) developer right now?

 

Here's my response:

I'm excited to be a mobile developer right now.
According to recent market stats, we have 275M+ smartphone users in the US alone with mobile users spending almost 230 minutes each day on their mobile devices. And that makes the mobile device and mobile app experiences critical to our everyday lives and routines. In 2020, we're seeing the emergence of new capabilities (foldable phones, dual-screen devices) and more ways to develop for them (native Android/iOS apps, cross-platform frameworks, mobile web) than ever before. And with multi-platform options, where you can build reusable code for mobile/web/desktop apps, there has never been a better time to dive into programming languages like Kotlin, JavaScript and C#. 

Get started developing for the Surface Duo: 

1. Surface Duo Dev -  Learning Resources For Beginners

2. Microsoft Docs - Create Apps for Dual Screen

3. Microsoft DevBlogs - Surface Duo Blog

4. Surface duo SDK Download 

5. Microsoft DocsAzure For Mobile Devs Hub

Are you an experienced mobile developer? What are you excited about this year?
Are you an aspiring mobile developer? What would you like to know, to get started on your journey?


And I'm excited about fusion dev teams. 

What's a fusion dev team? Think of it as a team of coders and non-coders working together to solve interesting and valuable business problems with technology. With solutions like Power Platform anyone and everyone is now empowered to take their ideas from concept to working prototype, with little or no code experience. And that is how digital transformations can happen. When people with domain or user experience can now solve the issues they face everyday by not just designing but also implementing relevant mobile and web applications.

Are you someone who has ideas for enterprise or digital transformation but no coding experience? What do you want to build? Come join us and let's talk about what's possible!
