Application developers help companies keep up with the latest technologies and developments on the web. As online technology becomes increasingly important, all types of businesses are seeking application developers--from banks to universities, news channels to hospitals. These applications (or apps) can be used on smartphones, computers, tablets and more. As such, application developers must be able to create, develop, manage and maintain new programs and software. These tasks require an excellent knowledge of programming, HTML, all sorts of developer software, in many cases Linus, and experience with relational databases.
