Creating and growing a sustainable technology ecosystem is a very important goal for us. Although the talent pool for IT professionals is reassuring, there is no clear source for experts in mobile technology so we’re creating one.

“We are ecstatic with the results of our training program and the marvelous response from the mobile development professionals in Mexico, Chile and Argentina. We are working hard to continue expanding our efforts in training throughout Latin America in 2013,” said Anurag Kumar, CEO of iTexico.
As an Appcelerator strategic partner, iTexico has successfully implemented an intensive training program for the mobile development platform Titanium, across Mexico and Latin America. iTexico’s training efforts have been greatly supported by the Mexican government since the beginning of the program. These efforts are supported specifically by entities such as the The National Chamber of Electronic Industry, Telecommunications and Information Technology (CANIETI) and MexicoFIRST. With their support, significant numbers of Mexican technical talent have had the opportunity to receive government sponsorship and become certified in developing mobile applications with Titanium. Certified software development talent are from both public and private sectors as well as currently enrolled college students.
“Creating and growing a sustainable technology ecosystem is a very important goal for us. Although the talent pool for IT professionals is reassuring, there is no clear source for experts in mobile technology so we’re creating one,” said Guillermo Ortega, COO of iTexico and lead executive for the company’s operations in Mexico.
iTexico has also benefited from this strategic partnership with Appcelerator. In addition to training others, the majority of the software development team hold one or more levels of Titanium Certified Application Developer certifications. These certifications include: TCAD, TCMD, and TCE. Additionally, iTexico’s mobile development team in Guadalajara, Mexico is currently largest team of Titanium experts outside of California and continues to grow rapidly.
As part of it’s Training Partnership, iTexico has been working with Appcelerator since early 2012 to spread awareness of Titanium throughout Latin America. Since the first class, more than 200 IT professionals have received a Titanium Certified Application Developer certification from one of iTexico’s training clasess.
iTexico has taken its Appcelerator Titanium training classes to various regions in Mexico as well as expanded to other countries in South America. With the help of Kibernum and BHP global as strategic partners, iTexico held classes in Chile and Argentina . Due to these efforts, more than 40 talented professionals were certified on mobile development and helped increase the Titanium community across Latin America borders.
iTexico will continue to continue growing their presence in other Latin American countries during 2013. Additionally, the team will be offering more specialized and advanced training classes in Mexico and South America.
