Common Certifications and Skills for an Applications Developer
Knowledge of Programming Languages
Microsoft Certified Application Developer
Provided by Global Knowledge, the MCAD certification shows that the candidate has entry-level knowledge in all things applications. The course and test press all facets of application development, from coding to design, giving the candidate a great foundation knowledge of Microsoft and Microsoft back-end creations.
Though not as significant as a portfolio of experience and schooling, the certification does show that the candidate has a small level of higher education on the subject. This is a bonus if your company’s apps are designed for Microsoft products.
Due to creating and looking over the company’s new applications and back-end coding for issues, the candidate should be an expert at troubleshooting. Once the Engineer goes about creating the application, the rest of their responsibilities will surround upkeep. Therefore, the professional should have expert troubleshooting skills, giving them the ability to quickly pinpoint and fix issues, keeping the application running smoothly.
Other Parallel Career Paths and Jobs
Basically, the role is the same as the applications developer noted here. The difference is the platforms and operating systems in which they create the apps.
The Mobile Developer specializes in software platforms such as Google’s, Apple’s iOS, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone platforms. They have strong analytical skills and are able to understand users’ needs effectively in order to create applications that serve the business need. Therefore, communication skills are essential to be successful in the position.
During the development cycle, the Applications Analyst oversees production to help ensure integrity and proficiency. They then test new applications to solidify administration, safety, and monitoring. Finally, they continue to oversee the application’s lifecycle, situating themselves as a master for troubleshooting, updating, and maintenance.
In a higher-level position than the developer, the Project Manager oversees every part of the application development cycle, ensuring each team and department meets deadlines and provides quality work.
The Project Manager plans and executes multiple initiatives for a company. For example, when a company needs to implement a new solution, the Product Manager identifies, plans, and executes all aspects of the solution. Consequently, they oversee the complete lifecycle of the new initiative.
