Developers are having it good. Regardless of verticals, the opportunity to develop applications are always available.
I received an email alert about the Panasonic Developer Program recently. In their words, where I quote,
This is the first step in our partnership to contribute to the upcoming Panasonic App Store where your applications will be essential in creating an ecosystem that will revolutionize the way our customers use technology despite the harshest of environments.
The verticals listed for this program are – Automotive & Aviation, Defence & Military, Public Sector & Emergency Services, Financial & Retail, Pharmaceutical & Healthcare, In the Field of Computing and Forestry. Head on to http://www.toughbookasiadeveloperprogram.com/registration if you have an interest to develop applications in any of this field (or perhaps for some other things that are not listed, like interstellar space!)
