comment How to become a GIS Mobile Developer?
If you're serious about becoming a developer, mobile or not, you're going to need to learn some serious programming and computer science fundamentals. Don't even worry about GIS development until you have a good base of programming to start with. Also, it's probably important to have a good idea of why you want to take the mobile developer route - courses can help with with.

comment How to have QGIS show the number of points that overlay the raster polygon?
Are the rasters irregularly shaped? If they are simple boxes/rectangles you could just pull the coordinates of a couple corners and perform a query against the point coordinates to determine if they fall inside.

comment Where to find books or course materials to help prepare for Esri Technical Certification in ArcGIS Desktop and Developer?
I think the idea of the certification is to gain the knowledge from many sources and demonstrate the knowledge in a test format - it's not designed to be a course that you "pass". Therefore, ESRI doesn't offer a one-stop-shop for the materials.

comment Averaging satellite data with missing values (using Python)
I'm going to agree with @whuber on this one. I think the data itself (satellite) is less relevant than the statistical methods you'll need to use to analyze it.

You can apply a mask to your imagery in order to exclude areas where data is missing if they aren't already classified as 'no data'.

comment Official source for QGIS icons or banners?
There is an SVG folder included in the install as well, but it doesn't look like it includes any GIS-specific files - mostly symbology.

comment Select by attribute expression invalid in python
+1. As an aside - searching for features based on an FID is bad practice as they may be missing or reassigned in some cases.

comment How to create Point Transects along line?
I have done exactly this in VB.NET (using ArcObjects) - would this be an acceptable solution for you or are you looking to do this manually/with python?

comment Steps for creating an online webmap with editable features using ArcGIS Server/SDE and SQL Server?
We do have a SQL Standard license installed on one of our servers. Chat would work - 10AM PST/1PM EST tomorrow? Same time later this week if that doesn't work?

comment Steps for creating an online webmap with editable features using ArcGIS Server/SDE and SQL Server?
We are stuck in the ESRI world and we already have the software - I just happen to be new-ish to the web GIS world and have found this process particularly frustrating. I have created similar/simple web maps using open source software, but the requirements for this particular project are different.
