How to become a mobile developer for Games and Apps? Also what education do you need ? And what beginner job title do I choose?

So I'm currently deciding what programming language to learn, currently I'm learning c# . But as I tried looking for jobs , you know just to get a feel for future job prospects, I kept seeing it's was all over the place of what I needed to know and the job titles were just as confusing. Especially on indeed in Texas. Additionally I was thinking of whether or not it was worth furthering my education by getting a bachelor's but I don't know in what i need in order to be a mobile developer. I had the idea of software developer but I'm not to sure. I just feel overwhelmed with information such as you need to learn this and that. Ex: You need swift , you need kotlin , flutter is the way to go so learn dart, xamirin is the way to go, unity is an option. Oh ps I have PC and legit dont want to have to buy a Mac or MacBook just to code on one platform, but I will if I have too. I just need guidance. It will help if I can talk one on one with someone who's a mobile developer.

Thanks so much for the help it means a lot. I think I got a clear solution now. I'll stick with c# and learn unity. Once I feel comfortable I'll explore into xamarin or I'll might learn the native language for each platform . But I'll also learn more along the way thanks everyone who responded .


That is your problem, being overwhelmed. Stick with c# and learn it well, that is a good start. By the time you become well-versed in one language, you'll know enough to go to the next level.

I heard rumors of Swift being the only language you could use in the Apple app store.
