Hello connections. I am posting this to clarify few things about App & Software Development. I have few questions regarding the same –

Scenario: I'll be learning App development using Flutter & Java (software Android Studio & VS code)

1. What are the Frontend Technologies that are used ? I mean in Web page designing we use HTML, CSS, JS for designing. I have no idea how App development works

2. What are the technologies used for Security purpose of the app ?

3. What are the technologies used as Backend ?

4. What is client-side and server-side aspects of a software ?

I have little bit idea regarding the same, but I have no insights of how to proceed step by step building a cross-platform app.

Thank you in advance…

Moshiko_Az says:

when you started to learn ios after android, did you started with swiftui ?

Trenton Reid says:

I would say native is the way to go since most software companies do native apps. Multiple platform development may be the future but they are still relatively new tools. It's good to know but start with the basics.

This is my take. Learn one native then choose one multiplat.

Hello sir, full time full stack dev, I've dabbled in android dev for schooling purposes only but I feel like I could build a decent CRUD app fairly easily, thank you for the no BS input for solving my cross platform vs native debate in my head lol. I appreciate your time.

Hello I was thinking about getting a certificate in IOS App Development from my local community college. It only require 4 classes, which include:
1) survey of computer information systems
2) Object oriented programming fundamentals
3) Introduction to IOS Application Development
4) Advanced iOS Application Development

If I was to achieve this, do you think it would be enough to land me an entry level position? or would i be dismissed since i don't have a degree? Keep in mind I have no experience in any software or mobile development
