Perhaps one of the biggest stories coming out of the world of mobile apps is the ability for just about anyone to create one. With a basic understanding of application development, you can build a game, music player or business application. Stanford University even offers a free iPhone Application Programming course through iTunes U.
One resource that the Knowledge Network offers is an Android Applications Support Checklist, which gives IT professionals and amateurs perspective on how to get started and what they'll need to begin Android development.
