According to the latest Google news, the Android owner will conduct a Developing Android App course for effective and cost-friendly development of Android apps. Every participate needs to go under the 100 hours of the training session to understand and learn some basic android app development techniques for catching up with the global market. However, it is still unclear which outsourcing firms are participating in training. “Large outsourcing companies have been focused on a different part of the stack and that has been extremely lucrative. But, I think it is true that we don’t see mobile development happening as an offshore outsourcing industry in India”, said William Florance, head of university programs, developer training at Google.

India’s developer community comprises 2 million to 4 million of skilled developers, but only 9 percent out of them deal with mobile app development. This is the reason why Indian market is struggling in the mobile app technology sector globally, which has become multi-billion dollar business since last decade. According to IMaCS, a management consulting branch of rating firm ICRA, If India wants to keep up its growth rate in the global market it needs to have 240 million trained IT professionals by 2022.
