We are halfway into the year and, looking back at what the last 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic left us, we can say that the advancements on technology and all the different languages, frameworks and development tools have not disappointed us and even in many cases have overtaken us. It doesn’t seem that long since Java 8 was released more than 8 years ago and, although it is true that today the latest version is Java 18, we must remember that there are still many companies stuck with Java 8 and even a few with Java 1.4 a 1.6 and a few other legacy frameworks.
Because of this great advance in programming languages and frameworks in recent years, many programmers could feel overwhelmed due to the large number of updates that we are exposed to in our industry. However, we have begun to see very marked patterns in different industries, and we believe it is important to mention what are the 10 things that every Java programmer should learn.
A simple way to start training yourself on these technologies is through courses that are available on paid platforms like Udemy, Pluralsight, etc. You can also get this knowledge through free resources available on YouTube and blogs that fit the seniority we have in each of these technologies. Each new technology learned will add an important skillset to your career path that will guide you towards success on the IT programming industry.
