Hi all,

I've been learning JavaScript & Python in the past year. Seemingly, younger companies(startups) are hiring JS, Python & Ruby on Rails developers (for web dev at least).

Besides the usage of Java in Android apps and Enterprise, where else is Java used in this day and age?

Looking forward to experienced developers' views. Thank you

I suspect its commonest use is connecting the database to the website. You use SQL in the database, you use JS etc etc in the website and you use Java to connect the two. Look up three‑layer architecture.

Hi Campbell,

That's interesting because I recently saw that airbnb hires java developers on their data structure, etc.

Fir example - https://www.airbnb.com.sg/careers/departments/position/2284

From what you mentioned about three-layer architecture, are there certain frameworks or ideas that I can read up to learn about?

If you have the data in a database, then you use SQL/JDBC to get them out of the database. Then you can use the Collections Framework classes to put them into data structure.
