After many discussions with Java developers, combined with my personal experiences with the Java community and platform, here are the key reasons why Java developers love Java after all these years!
Can you cheat in a technical interview? This approach for hiring tuned over decades is how you moneyball hiring and work with great people!
Are the problems startups run into different from the ones experienced by Netflix, Hashicorp and Meta? Learn about increased productivity!
Although a lot of universities and high schools focus on Python and C# in their program, there are luckily a lot of others who go “full Java”.
Don’t get me wrong, I definitely don’t want to start a “programming-languages-war”, but Java is the language I used myself more than any other for the last 10 years.
Setting up a new project or building a proof-of-concept for a new idea, is a matter of hours. And there is always a solution for the problem I need to solve.
This is probably true for each developer who has enough experience in the language used the most. But having used and experimented with many other languages, I still keep returning to my “one true love”, being Java, as it always delivers the result I’m aiming for, with the right amount of code to be readable, understandable, and testable!
