Web dev VS mobile dev – CKNW Radio Show

Web dev VS mobile dev – CKNW Radio Show

Development as job has really taken off in the last decade. Fast changing technologies and new demand led to the multiplication of new career opportunities. Mobile app development resulted from the rapid adoption of the smartphones and the accessibility of the web. A common misconception is that web development and mobile app development require the same skills but building an app or a website is actually a completely different process and deals with different factors. First of all, an app and a website don’t have the same goals and people don’t navigate the same way on a desktop as they do on a mobile device.

As web development skills quickly become “the standard” being able to program for mobile apps gives you the competitive edge. Today iOS and Android are the main references in terms of operating systems and offer more opportunities but since technology moves fast and what’s popular today might be obsolete tomorrow.


Lighthouse Labs is back this Saturday on CKNW to give you more info about careers in development for both Web and iOS. If you are interested in this field tune into tomorrow’s GetConnected radio show!

When: 10am

Where: CKNW News Talk 980AM
