Last year I took my first steps into iOS development with projects like Timy, Raz*War and a couple of projects I can’t talk about right now. But this year I am going to focus on Mobile development. In the first place it will be iOS development, but I am also ready to dive into Android or Windows Phone 7. With my current knowledge of Silverlight the latter should be a peace of cake, and in my somewhat far away past I also did some Java development.

I will also do something that I always wanted to do, and that is building casual games for those platforms. I am diving deep into cocos2d right now, and if you want to start learning cocos2d I would certainly advice you to read the book “Learn iPhone and iPad Cocos2D Game Development” by Stephen Itterheim. It gives a very thorough overview of the capabilities of the Framework and yet it’s easy to read. Besides games I will definitely continue to develop Apps.

It is going to be an interesting journey, but I like developing for Mobile a lot more that classic application development. Mobile App development is great because it tries to solve a small problem and do that very well. Don’t implement too many features, just keep it simple. Although I think that the future of mobile will also involve Web Apps build with HTML and JavaScript, there is still going to be room for apps.

So stay tuned for more, because this year a lot is going to happen…
