Most candidates with heavy Java are from India. But they are all here on H1B visas – so suck it up and sponsor them or stop whining. I assume outsourcing created that gap to begin with: you reap what you sow. Mobile developers are another chapter in an old, old story. The same was true for C, then C++. You can’t have a whole new technology go from seedling to a forest in 2-3 years and expect to find candidates. How about training existing developers in Mobile? It’s got to be done eventually. Better to bit the bullet now that wait for a magic one to appear, because it isn’t going to happen.
