I am a research chemist by day and I am a self-taught hobbyist iOS programmer by night. I am in the process of developing a moderately complex iOS app and hope to launch it within a month or two. I love everything about iOS development (and programming in general).

I want to know if iOS development could become a backup career for me if I loose my job.

My question: Let's say I had a couple of apps in the app store, a solid foundation in objective-C and the apple frameworks and basic knowledge on network integrated apps. Without a formal CS degree, what other experience/knowledge would I need to land a job as a professional iOS developer?

Forgive me if this question is out of bounds for this forum. If it is, suggestions on where to post such a question would be appreciated.
