Java

Love it, hate it, or both, Java isn't going away anytime soon. Java is more than 20 years old and has been one of the most, if not the most, popular programming languages in both universities and businesses for the last few years. The promise of 'write once, run anywhere' is powerful, and most commercial applications won't be hindered by Java's relative weakness at reaching down to the bare metal for control. If you're looking to upgrade you economic status and don't already have Java in your skill set, it should certainly be on your 2016 'languages to learn' list.

Re: Java and JavaScript
BlooklynNellie, Aparently not. Curt reported on the case a few months ago. That's why I was wondering if he knew what happened. As per the votes the petition had at the moment Curt wrote the article and it was published it didn't have enough. I am assuming the petition failed. It was just ridiculous. -Susan

Java and JavaScript
Curt, what ever happened with that petition to ban Java and JavaScript? I suppose it didn't go any further; am I right? -Susan
