Why Learn Java?
There are a lot of reasons why one should learn Java.
Let’s look at some of the reasons below.
Firstly, Java is currently one of the most popular programming languages in use. According to Oracle, 3 billion devices run Java. Furthermore, Android apps are also developed using Java. With the growing demand for mobile apps, it is safe to say that Java is an essential language to learn if you are interested in becoming a programmer.
Next, Java has syntax and features that resemble other programming languages like C and C++. If you have any prior programming experience, you will find learning Java a breeze.
Even if you are totally new to programming, you can rest assured that Java is designed to be a relatively easy language to learn. Most programmers find it easier to learn Java than say, C or C++
Java is also designed to be platform independent. As mentioned earlier, Java code is compiled into bytecode first, which can be run on any machine that has the Java Virtual Machine. Hence with Java, you can write the code once and run it anywhere you want.
Next, Java is an object-oriented programming (OOP) language. Object-oriented programming is an approach to programming that breaks a programming problem into objects that interact with each other.
Once you master Java, you will be familiar with these concepts. This will make it easier for you to master other object-oriented programming languages in future.
