App development is a constant moving industry. Yesterday, it was limited to smartphones only. Today, or if you look after tomorrow, you will find unlimited sources for which you will make apps. VR, AR, AI, smart watch, smart homes and much more are waiting for your apps. Top app developers have mastered the art of making apps for smartphones, if they want to remain on top; they have to sharpen their skills to face the future challenges.
In today’s era of increasing demands for apps, you may not find enough time to learn a new skill. That’s why you need to learn tricks that keep your skills updated without disturbing your app-earning life.
1. Take a project and start working
App developers are generally habitual to learn first, through books/tutorials, and then start making the app. Being an app developer, you are well-aware of the basics of app. So you don’t need to learn again and again from scratch. Better option to save time and efforts is: directly pick up the project that you have ever developed and start working on it. You may face challenges due to directly jump on work out of your loop, but as you go on work and learn simultaneously, you will find it enjoyable as well as adventurous.
2. Keep an Eye on Experts
Experts are everywhere. You will easily find a group of experts working on different projects than yours. If you want to learn something that is relevant to your field, but you never worked on it, the best way is to keep a keen eye on your experts. What they are doing, how they are doing, what expertise they put in, etc., you will learn all just by keeping experts in check.
3. Dwell in Competition
You can’t compete with experts who are working on a same project since years. Being new to skill, you have to compete with a person equals to your experience or slightly upper. Learn a new skill with your friends and raise a competition of who could apply the skill well. This will tell you progress you have made and how much far you have to go. Also, you will learn a lot from others work as everybody in competition applies its own mind.
4. Create Your Own Business
Your skills will expand only when they put under challenge. Create your website highlighting your work. Get project from there. If clients offer you to do work on projects that don’t come under your territory, then also, try your best to take the job and finish the work.
Today’s conclusion is: efforts and consistency is all you need to put your skills on update mode. The day you stop learning is the day you stop growing. So keep learning and keep growing to stay on the top.
