It’s a great “first language” to learn.

Java is actually a relatively easy programming language to learn. If you don’t have any experience with programming but want to increase your skills in the area, Java is the perfect language to start with. It uses a lot of plain English to tell the program or computer what to do. Thanks to its structure, it is also pretty intuitive to pick up and understand. That’s part of the reasons it’s so great for beginning programmers. It’s also why the language has been around for more than 20 years and is still going strong.

There is a ton of support available.

One of the things you’ll need as a beginning programmer is plenty of support, and the Java community has your back. There are millions of Java programmers in the world and many of them are passionate about the language. You’ll find Meetups in your area for Java certification as well as online forums packed with information. If you have a question about Java, chances are you can easily find the answer online due to the thousands of websites dedicated to answering Java programming questions. If the information isn’t there, you’ll find active online communities of Java programmers who will be eager to help you solve your Java dilemma.
