Tech giant Google aims to train about 2 million developers in India on its Android platform over the next three years to cash in on the high-quality talent pool in the country. India, which has about one million people working on solutions for the Android mobile platform, is poised to become home to about 4 million developers by 2018, making it the world’s largest developer base.
“India is expected to have the largest developer population globally, overtaking the US, by 2018, with four million developers. But today only 25 per cent of developers are building for mobile,” Google Vice President Product Management Caesar Sengupta told reporters here. The aim is to help make India the global leader in mobile app development, he added.
