Information technology is a lucrative industry to be in but it is ever evolving. To ensure you start your technology career with the right language is a must.

We did a small analysis of major Technology arears from West to east coast namely San Francisco bay Area, New York, and Dallas, Texas. This graph chart predicts the most in-demand jobs according to Indeed and Dice.com and number of jobs for each language namely Java, Python, Ruby on rails, C# and C++. As per our finding java is the most popular language as per our analysis of nationwide and SF Bay Area, New York and Dallas-Texas areas. Java has a rich history of 20 years. It has evolved with the demand of time and technology. This the language which has most job opportunities and used by largest number of developers in the country. In SF bay area Python jobs come up as higher than Java but still on analysis we found they were not standalone Python Jobs and we found that they needed Java along with Python. As we can see in the chart below:

San Francisco Bay Area is a technology hub. Because most prominent companies like: Google, Apple, twitter, Facebook, Intel and AMD nurtured and nourished from this area. So, most of these companies demands for Java which is most scalable and evolutionary language and Python which is a dynamic and easy to learn and implement language. So, we can see in below Pie chart these two prominent languages are ruling most of the companies. Where Python covers the job percentage of 37%, Java covers 36% percent of job market in the bay area even then Python jobs demanded knowledge of Java

We did an analysis based on both job portals in New York area, and we got very predictable results from here too, as we can see in below pie chart, Java is again ruling the Software job market with 41% and followed by Python 31% of the job market. The other languages dominating the rest of the market are C# and C++, so we can see apart from Java and Python, C# and C++ languages are the best option for developers to master and get highest salary jobs.

Dallas has emerged the new technology hub in recent years. Companies like Texas Instrument (semiconductor), AT&T, Comerica bank, McAfee are the most seeking companies by developers, and the interesting fact is all these companies are demanding for the developers, full stack developers and QA profiles with Java, Python, C# and C++ background. So, the below Pie chart which based on job percentage in Dallas with most demanding languages, shows the dynamic results of Java 49% with nearly covering half of the regions jobs, Python with 22% and C#, C++ respectively 17% and 11% of the job market.

So, the above graph and Pie chart attest to the fact that Java has been the most in demand programming language with the most number of Jobs and appears to still retain its place presently and in the future

Java has been around a long time and was bought into existence in 1991. Sun microsystems brought Java to the public in 1995 and presently Oracle is managing Java. Java is one of the prominent language used to create web applications and technical platforms. Java has become a language of facts and practical knowledge. Fortune 500 organizations like: LinkedIn, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple rely mostly on Java. In a very short period Java has been incorporated into most often used web browsers. Java is used largely for developing Android applications. Java has a highly supported open source community. If you are still thinking why Java stands out, then you should look at different sectors in which Java is widely used.
  • Retail: Billing applications that is used in a store/restaurant are written in Java.
  • Android: Android apps are mostly written in JAVA.
  • Financial services: JAVA is used in server-side applications.
  • Big Data: Hadoop mainly uses JAVA
  • Scientific and Research Community: JAVA is used to deal with huge amount of data.
  • Banking: Transaction management is developed with JAVA
  • Information Technology: Java is used in Artificial Intelligence and other dynamic technologies.
  • Stock market: JAVA is used to write algorithms of company stocks.
Hence, Java is used to build applications and platforms for several devices, including computers, laptops, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, car navigation systems, medical monitoring devices, parking meters, lottery terminals and smartphones. It is also a key language for networking, particularly for data centers that store and transfer Web-based data. Main reasons Java is so popular is its platform independent nature and its portability. If you do a quick search of jobs for Java and other languages, you would see Java would have more jobs than   Python, C # or c++ . We are not using Javascript in this comparison as Java positions mostly also include Javascript roles also For a job seeker the vast implementation of Java across different industry domains make it a lucrative programming language to pursue for a long-term career sustenance. We will follow up later with what steps a person should take to compete effectively in this competitive technology industry which though lucrative is tough to get into.
