Reading this? You're probably planning to skill up on HTML5 in 2012
There's gold in them there mobile coding languages
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.
