I was asked a difficult question last night by a person who wants to specialize in an area of the internet, instead of been a 'jack of all trades and master of none' in terms of internet capability and skills.
The questions was - "what area of the whole web design / development do you think it would be best to specialize in... what skill is sought after and what skill would is most valuable from a financial point of view"
I thought for a few minutes on it and my top 3 responses were:
- iOS Development
- Java Development
- PHP Development
What would be your top 3 (in order of priority)
Looking forward to seeing people's opinions on this...
First: Java, as it is the main language for both iOS apps and Android apps.
Second: PHP/MYSQL, as they are (in my opinion) the most widely used languages for dynamic (i.e modern) websites
And third: Graphic design (dont laugh) becuase it is amazing how many well coded websites you see that are just plain ugly.
