25 Years of Java
May 23rd marked 20 years since the first version of Java was released for public use. The timing of its arrival coincided with the advent of the web and the new role technology took in improving business productivity, streamlining business processes, and creating new ways for businesses and customers to interact.

The importance of a given programming language—especially one as pervasive as Java—in changing how people use technology is difficult to underestimate. The big data revolution, for example, is primarily a Java phenomenon.  In industry and business, most of server-side computing is done using Java applications. And much of the Internet of Things is also emerging on Java devices.

Learn more about Java's past, present and future in this interesting article from Forbes
