I've been contemplating a move to focus my energies towards learning and adding mobile development to my skill list.
I've been a web developer and enterprise developer (Java 1.4 & Java EE) for a while now, but I have strong urge to do something new and move my career into mobile development.
While, I'm only at the beginning stages of this process, my question - is there a large demand for Java related mobile development?
Will this lead me to more career opportunities or will I have to be in the right location demographically? I live in Omaha, Nebraska.
I guess I'm trying to figure out, besides looking at job posting on Monster and Yahoo!, if the demand is truly there.
Don't get me wrong, web and enterprise development has done well for me - it pays the bills and provides more than enough for my wife and two kids.
But, I really have a strong interest in Mobile development and instead of making it a hobby, I'd like to see if this could lead me to a new and better career.
