Hoary old coders are skilling up on mobile says a survey from CWJobs, revealing that 81 per cent of UK IT pros are planning to refresh their skill sets by sitting down and swotting up on some HTML5 in 2012.

One in five (19 per cent) of the 1,366 IT pros surveyed through the jobs site was planning to go the whole hog and reskill entirely to become a mobile computing specialist.

It's likely to be a smart bet as UK - and American - businesses have cash to splurge in the area, and overall spending on mobile projects will double over the next 18 months, rising from $422K (£266K) by 2013 per business to $926K (£584K) according to this Antenna Software survey.

Mobile skills were seen as an useful skill set for whippersnappers too. Seventy-eight per cent of IT specialists think mobile computing is a good option for graduates entering the industry and advise that those seeking to secure a future in mobile computing should ensure they are proficient in JavaScript, C#, .NET and HTML 5. ®
