The need for competition

When you have so many people all around who are using tools and software to create apps that will be really helpful then why not provide them a platform that will showcase their talent. When there is competition that automatically means there will be awards too. Mostly the awards in this scenario are something related to the development of their skill like attending some workshop or some short course of developing professional apps. The competition helps in picking up the best talent and helping them grow in the field that they really want. Making people aware that what they thought is fun to do can be done seriously and for that they can also take some formal training. App development is a serious business and though some do it for fun, but at the end of the day when people will start recognizing the talent then he will definitely take it seriously.
