Lextech Introduces Mobile Accelerators Program to Train Mobile App Developers

LISLE, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2014) - The Lextech Mobile Accelerators Program is designed to help bridge the skills gap that exists in mobile app development. Software teams looking to expand their knowledge to include mobile app development can get instruction and coaching through the new program offered by Lextech (

Lextech developers have deep experience in developing enterprise mobile apps that reinvent the way people work and generate billions of dollars for clients in both cost savings and revenue potential.

Lextech's Mobile Accelerators Program offers two methods of instruction:

  • Side-by-Side Development involves the Lextech team working collaboratively with an organization's internal development team, so developers can learn from experts while completing their own mobile app projects.

  • Self-paced iOS mobile development courses are designed for software engineers who are fluent in traditional development and need to build mobile app skills quickly. The courses include a dashboard framework to help developers build their own dashboard apps.

Lextech instructors bring teaching and coaching experience to the Mobile Accelerators Program, having co-created the mobile app certificate program at Northern Illinois University (NIU), ranked as the ninth top computer engineering school in Illinois and among the top 200 nationally. In addition, four Lextech developers serve as adjunct professors at NIU.

Instruction is based on best practices for solving hard engineering problems and creating apps that are secure, scalable and sustainable. The courses are concise and focused on getting development teams trained quickly without impacting their current projects.

"Software development for mobile apps requires different skills and strategies than web development, and proficient mobile app developers are scarce," said Alex Bratton, CEO and chief geek at Lextech. "Our courses are designed to move developers from beginner to proficient in mobile app development in record time by focusing on how programming concepts translate from languages they already know, including C#, C++, Java and Python."
