Hi all,

I am bit new to this site and just now I have started to learn java in order to change my career.

Currently I hold MSc in Information Technology Management which is basically not related to any programming language but done some bit in my 1st year BSc.

I got Head First Java book through AMAZON and started to learn. I am bit confused because people say that Java is not worth for get some jobs.
Any advice guys?

What people say Java isn't good for getting a job? What do they think you should learn instead?

The fact that most undergraduate studies includes Java says to me that Java still holds a place in business.

That's funny. I've always experienced it as more easy to get a job as a Java programmer, ever since I learned Java.


The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.

Wouldn't learning Java be essential for programming in Java? Otherwise I think I'll start a new career in law, if I don't have to learn the law to practice it.
