Learning Web + mobile (Android / iOS)

Is it a good idea to Lear both web and mobile development. I am a beginner but I feel strongly attracted to both topics.

What do you think? Is this good practice / doable ?

Sebastian Nitu -

I think it's a decent idea to jump into them both - I'd encourage you to try to do that critically, as well. Don't just learn how to do web development and then learn how to do mobile development (or vice versa) - try to compare and contrast them. What do you like/hate about mobile dev as compared to web dev? What do you think makes them different fields? In what ways are they the same, even though they use disparate tools? Do you think your web development practice could learn from your knowledge of mobile dev?

One of the best things I think you can do as a developer is broaden your horizons regularly, because it exposes you to new ideas and interesting ways of thinking about programming problems that you might otherwise have never considered.
