5 Reasons Why Java is Must-Learn Programming Language!!

Hi Guys,

First of all, how are you guys doing? It’s been quite a while, I wonder what new things you all learned in 2017?
In case, some of you were busy because of exams and other things, just like us, it is never too late to start learning with TechGlobule, Gateway to (Learning) Technology.

So, let’s learn a few things about our good old Java.

What is programming/coding?

In case, you are completely a newbie to all of this programming stuff. You should read a little about Coding, Programming, Programming Languages and Compilers in our previous article of IDEOne.

What is Java?

Java is a general-purpose programming language that is based on the idea of “Write once, Run anywhere” (WORA), which means that a single Java code can sun on all supported platforms without further editing.

As of 2016, Java is one of the most popular languages in use. It was originally developed by James Gosling and released in 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems’ Java platform. The language derives much of its syntax from C and C++, but it has fewer low-level facilities than either of them.

Why do we need Java? Where is it used?

There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to data centers, game consoles to scientific super computers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!

Is it free to download?

Yes, Java is free to download. The latest version can be easily downloaded from Java.com.

  public static void main(String[] args)
     System.out.println("Hello World!"); // Prints the string to the console.

Why Java is Must-Learn Programming Language?

There are many programming languages out there that are very complicated to master. However, Java has always been very popular amongst newbies because of how easy it is to learn this programming language. Of course, as with anything new, you will have to dedicate some time and effort to learn Java but you will be surprised at how quickly you can master it. Many of you might wonder why Java specifically and I am here to tell you exactly why.

5 Reasons to learn Java –

■ Easy to use

As mentioned in the introduction, Java is one of the least complicated programming languages and every beginner can become an expert. After you research the basics, you can look for Java programming assignments for beginners and start practicing your skills. A programming assignment can be seen as a test or exam, just until you are able to take on real projects.

■ It’s fast

Dynamically typed languages are generally slow to use, but because Java is a statistically typed language it is much faster. You don’t have to constantly check your coding to eliminate any mistakes as Java does it for you automatically. There is no time wasted on redoing your work. If you need help with programming assignment, there is a whole community that uses this tool, so all you have to do is ask.

■ Meet-up community

Learning from others has always been a great way to improve your skills. Many developers started where you are with little knowledge about coding. The Java Meetup Community is the 4th largest in the programming world and this is once again proof of its popularity. Many of these meets offer mentor-ship to beginners so there is no reason not to become a professional developer with ease. With more than 580,000 users out there, it is quickly recognized as an essential programming language.

■ Job opportunities

With most of the world struggling to make the economy stable again, doing something to help you bring in an income is vital. There are huge job opportunities for anyone who knows Java. Many jobs are created daily in the tech industry for developers who have managed to master this programming language. You can give yourself a huge advantage by going this route. With the many Android apps out there, it becomes impossible to not bring more opportunities to write native apps.

■ Universal

Around the world, Java is known as a great and efficient programming language. It is clear that this is becoming a universal language and there are no boundaries in securing jobs. Java is recognized on desktops, mobile phones as well and many electronic devices. There truly is no limit on what you can create because of its versatility.


You can align yourself with one of the most powerful industries and become a well-known developer. For some reason, we have it in our heads that any programming language is difficult to learn, but Java will prove many wrong. It might seem challenging in the beginning, but once you get the hang of things you will be on your way to developing great programs.

Being able to write code is such an important part of our ever evolving world. We are moving more and more towards a digital environment and everyone should make it their responsibility to try to learn a programming language. Even kids can start mastering codes from as soon as they can read and write. There are so many cool apps that teach you the basics and can be a great base for any beginner. Do not think that it is beyond you to master Java because many have done it and so can you!
