There is an apparent imbalance between supply of good iPhone developers and demand for quality iPhone (or iPad) apps from big companies, SMEs and even aspiring entrepreneurs.
Until the local universities and polytechnics produce sufficient graduates who are well equipped to do iOS development, this shortage of talent will hinder the progress of the mobile apps industry in Singapore.
Unfortunately, this is not an easy issue to tackle — technical programmes at tertiary level are relatively unpopular. Students here are very much attracted to the banking and finance industry. They prefer to take a business- or finance-related course of study instead of engineering, sciences or IT.
There are iPhone developer jobs, but are there enough people to fill them?
