Today one of the most frequent questions asked by the business owners and software developers is: “Why Java is so important?” Our 17 years’ experience in сustom services has shown that Java is crucial for development. It is simpler to use and learn, and very portable.

Now let’s consider some facts:

  • Google’s (Gmail & Youtube) is built on Java (and some other languages).
  • Twitter (Netty) & Linkedin uses Java & Scala.
  • Amazon, eBay, and Blogger use mainly Java.
  • 3 billion devices run Java.

Development of Java projects is fast and far less costly. It results in a robust application which is reliable, bug-free, and portable to any device or operating system.

It is always great to follow experienced Java developers to keep track on the news and updates. However, today there are lots of voices trying to earn your attention and they are not always telling the right things. We have searched high and low and created a list of most resourceful and insightful Java experts for you to follow on social media.
