    Whether you're Snapchatting with friends or catching Pokémon, you probably spend time every day using the creations of mobile app developers. They aren't necessarily saving the world, but mobile app developers get to create something that can reach millions of people on a daily basis.

    That means growing demand for developers who build and update apps so they're secure, user-friendly, and sought after. 

    Why it's great: Mobile app developers are the first to test out the latest phones, tablets, and wearable devices. "If you like playing around with technology and exploring all the possibilities it offers, this can be a really fun job," says mobile app developer Kyle Craig.

    Dual credit is now being offered through Moraine Valley Community college and Harper Community College. Students who apply will be given the opportunity to receive both District 214 credit AND Moraine Valley credit. Students who apply can receive a Moraine Valley transcript, which can be applied to most four-year colleges. 


    Students will also have the opportunity to take the CompTIA IT Fundamentals, A+, Network+ and Security+ certification exams at the end of the courses.  These exams are not required but give students a leg up on their peers as they prepare to compete for technology related jobs.
