Java Development

Created in 1995 as a universal platform for writing code compatible with all architectures, Java remains the most widely used object-oriented programming language.

Java and its derivatives are almost everywhere: from enterprise-grade cloud systems to Java-based scripting languages like Go or Python. Popular modern languages, Kotlin and Scala, also run on the Java virtual machine (JVM). Hence, the need for proficient Java engineers is forecast to stay elevated in the upcoming years.
