Smartphones and Tablets are changing the way we communicate, access information, and do business. Conventionally, a mobile application developer would need to choose the mobile platform they develop for (Android, iOS, or other platforms). The MMAD exam validates these application programmers or web developers have the skills to develop both Android and iOS Apps, as well as generic skills that can be applied to all platforms (including project management). This combination of skills provides a great value for businesses in that they'll be able to confidently hire one developer for all major platforms.
MMAD is the most widely accessible vendor-neutral mobile application developer certification. Corporations looking to develop mobile apps should insist on making sure whoever they hire is a Certified Master Mobile Application Developer.
It takes different skills to create applications for the major application platforms. Professionals that hold a Logical Operations MMAD certification know the differences between the platforms and can create applications in all major formats. This skill set allows companies to bring their application to market quickly and efficiently and expose the application to the widest market segments.
Android has quickly caught up with Apple iOS in applications available and now is competitive with the number of application offerings. Gone are the days of developing an application to only Apple iOS. The marketplace is vast and opportunities are missed if not available on all three platforms.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is true in managing app development. Logical Operations MMAD exposes developers to basic project management skills to ensure everyone is speaking the same language. MMAD developers are skilled in project management processes and help remove potential barriers to completing a project in a timely manner.
While there are no formal prerequisites for taking the MMAD exam, we strongly recommend you have training and practical experience developing mobile applications in a variety of programming environments and that you can implement countermeasures to common mobile application security threats. You should have some experience with developing applications using object-oriented programming languages, such as Java, C++, C#, and Visual Basic, and identifying the security vulnerabilities in both the Android and iOS system architectures.
There are a multitude of training options to help prepare candidates for the MMAD Certification, including the following Logical Operations instructor-led courses: Developing Secure Android™ Apps for Business, Developing Secure iOS® Apps for Business, and Project Management Fundamentals (Third Edition).
