20 Lakh Android Developers Needed in India

Google launched a program on Monday to train two million developers in India on Android, its mobile operating system, in the next three-year period. This is aimed at enabling them to make innovative mobile applications on the platform.
India is expected to have the largest developer population of 4 million by 2018, overtaking the U.S., but only a quarter are building for the mobile, said Caesar Sengupta, Vice President (Product Management) at Google.

“The aim is to help make India the global leader in mobile app development” he added. India has about 1 million developers building applications for the Android platform. Google’s Play Store has over a million applications, and less than four per cent of the top 1000 applications come from India.
“India is expected to have the largest developer population globally, overtaking the US, by 2018, with four million developers. But today only 25 per cent of developers are building for mobile,” Google vice president of product management Caesar Sengupta told reporters here.
“We are launching a specially-designed instructor-led training programme on Android Fundamentals. This will be made available across public and private universities and training institutes of the National Skill Development Corporation of India (NSDC),” he said.
The in-person training module integrated into the course curriculum will be introduced within this calendar year by these partners.
Google head of developer training Peter Lubbers said the company aims to train about 2 million people in the next three years.
The training is available for both students as well as mid-career developers, he added.
