It is HTML5 work that has hit the number one slot in job hiring trends, so much so it has risen from 604 projects in Q1 to 807 in Q2, this gives this category a massive 34% increase, it seems that there is a downfall in Flash with more HTML5 projects on the rise. Flash work has dropped a huge 10% to 3095 jobs this quarter, guess we should start saying hello to Google Swiffy and what effects it will have on Flash.
There seems to be more work for HTML5 and Android developers, the general HTML jobs have only gone up by 7%. BlackBerry is down by 6 percent, Windows Mobile is down a massive 16 percent, Windows CE down 42%, now seeing that job trends has drop 6% for BlackBerry falling from 526 to 497 jobs can they pick things up with new smartphone releases such as the Bold 9900 Touch? This will release in August and until then we have to wonder if RIM is on a downslide and a continuing one at that.
