Java’s future?By admin | Comments: 0 | October 18, 2016
Java, arguably the most popular and used programming language in the world was first released in 1995 by Sun Microsystems. Today, it is used by almost all companies and individuals, ranging from business applications to computer games.
With the introduction of the Android Operating System in 2008, the popularity of Java based apps being developed for Android compatible devices has attracted a lot of attention from developers around the world.
Java did you say? With demand for Android apps increasing and an understanding of the Android SDK developers will be able to increase their earning power. Whether it be companies, start-ups or direct consumers Java developers will see their demand increase. Also, Android are competing with Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows so it is in their best interests to improve the capabilities of their Android OS and SDK.
The question is how do you increase your earning potential as a Java developer, developing Android apps? Simple – make yourself available as a contractor, even if you have never done it before, otherwise you could lose out on earning a lot of money (make hay whilst the Sun shines!).
So in my opinion the future of Java is definitely safe (or at least for the next 10 to 25 years). Not only because of what it has already given us but what it is about to.
