I want your opinion. Now a days I am working on android since from last two months. This one is my first job. Actually I was intrested in web -technologies. But now I love to make a code for android. What do you think will android has future? can i get job in multinational company after having 1-2 years of experiance?

Now I am really very confused where to go? in web technologies or in Mobile Application development (J2ME and Android).


I am waiting for your positive response .Please reply me. Thanks

If you have a job you love, why are you considering leaving? That should be the first question to ask and answer.

Both the web and mobile will be major forces for the foreseeable future, so that by itself is not a differentiating factor. IMO, JME does not have much a future -at least not compared to Android or iPhone/iPad- but it will still be around for some time, particularly on the BlackBerry.
But technology change is faster in the mobile area than on servers, so you'll need to adapt to that. Of course, technologies are always changing and you'll need to keep on learning no matter what you do.

Stay away from that friend!
If you're getting a chance to work on Android platform, you should consider yourself lucky!

Thanks for your opinions. But in India there are not much more big companies on mobile as compared to web technologies.There are many vacancy on web technologies but I never seen or heared vacancy for mobile application development in MNC's, hence I am confused.

Have you considered diversifying (learning objective-c so that you can target both iphone/ipad and android platforms)? But - why limit yourself to mobile development? You can take on learning web-app development in your spare time and become well-rounded.

There are also some intriguing crossover frameworks that allow you to use web-development skills to make iphone/ipad/android applications. In this way - you can do both mobile and web-app development.

PhoneGap
Appcelerator - Titanium
Rhomobile - Rhodes

Vikas, can you please advice me on how you landed on your job as an android developer? Did you learn it by yourself and told the company that you already know enough or did you tell them I will learn it on the job?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
