Competition for top app developers

Apple (AAPL) has turned to India in its efforts to groom the next generation of app developers. The company has introduced coding programs in Indian schools and colleges, according to a report by the Economic Times. Bringing coding lessons to schools and colleges allows Apple to groom app developers in India from an early stage, which could give it a head start in attracting top developer talents to its platform.

As selling mobile apps has become a lucrative business, Apple, Google (GOOGL), and Microsoft (MSFT) are constantly competing to attract top app developers to their iOS, Android, and Windows platforms, respectively.
