Minnesota School of Business has officially adopted an IT curriculum teaching mobile application development using Java on Eclipse for our Introduction to Software Development course this quarter. This gives our students the experience of developing mobile apps using Java on Android right out of the gate as this is generally a first quarter course! 

We are excited about this because it gives you an edge over your competition if you have a competency in Java, in general, and mobile application development in particular!

Now that MSB has established itself as a leader in mobile app development education, we are continuing to lead by offering some of you an amazing opportunity to network with mobile applications development professionals, learn about state of the art technology, and add a significant bullet to your resume!

The MobCon (Mobile application development conference) 2012 convention is in Minneapolis at the Hilton downtown on Tuesday, November 13, and Wednesday, November 14.
