What steps should I take to get into Mobile Development?

My Goal: Create an app similar to Tinder *Please note, I'm not trying to throw my hat in the ring with Tinder, Bumble, and all of those. This is just a side project that I'm interested in, I'm not considering fighting against Tinder. My Current Skills: * Minimal experience with MEAN stack and React Native (tutorials & summer internship) * Some experience with Java, JavaScript, CSS, HTML, and React (summer internship & hackathons) My Resources: Youtube tutorials, Google, and Safari (such as Practical React Native: Build Two Full Projects and One Full Game using React Native) My Plan: - Pick either Android, iOS, or RN - Complete tutorials in that language until I have a solid foundation for MobileDev - Continue building my skills so I can create my goal app Now, I am 100% willing to get some scrapes and bruises in order to create my goal app, no doubt about it. However, I want to make sure that I'm on the right track and doing this efficiently. * Would it be okay for me to learn React Native first, then worry about learning native languages later? - I read about some risks with working with React Native and it seems like the general consensus is that if I'm a massive tech company, I should stick with native. I'm not a massive tech company, so I'm thinking React Native. * Should I try to learn React Native and Android at the same time if I want to go into industry? I was told that if I want a Mobile Dev job, I should be working on learning Kotlin. *Is there anything that maybe I didn't think of? I'm looking for honest and genuine insight on this, both cautious and encouraging. Thank you for your time. #technology #mobileDevelopment #mobileDev # software #engineering #internship #iOS #android #kotlin #industry #womenInTech #react #reactNative #learning #tech #programming

What field should I work in?

I've always enjoyed working with computers, and I've found that tinkering with android phones is something I really enjoy doing. I love trying different custom operating systems and setting everything up efficiently. If these are the things I enjoy doing, what career choice is best for me? I've read about computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, but i'm not sure which one is best for me. #engineering #computer #software #android #mobile #operating-systems

When creating a developer's portfolio, how many projects does it need?

Hi! My name is Paul and I'm a 16 year-old who is currently learning app development. I know one of the best ways to get hired in the future is to build a portfolio of completed projects that showcases my knowledge and experience. How much content do I need? How complicated should my apps be? Can they be simple, or do they have to be outstanding? #technology #software #programming #it #android #apps

How should a student app developer get his first work?

Hi! My name is Paul and I'm a 16 year-old who is currently learning Android app development. I was looking at job postings in that field for future reference and I noticed that most employers want the developer to have at least two years of experience. My question is: how can I get two years of experience without already having a job? #software #programming #it #development #android #apps
