8 Best Programming Languages You Can Learn in 2024 for Better Pay and Jobs

For the last couple of weeks, I have been doing some research about which programming languages beginners and experienced developers should learn in 2024 for better career opportunity, growth and to increase their pay and packages when I stumbled about StackOverflow's Developer Survey. If you have seen them before and it's one of the best surveys for software developers, which provides useful insights about programming and the IT world. One of the things I really liked about this survey was its several lists like the list of top 10 programming languages and the most loved frameworks by programmers. Still, the one I found most useful was the list of high-paying technologies. This is a great list and allows you to choose what you can learn in 2024 to go to the next level in your career in terms of both financial and career growth.

5 Things You Can Gift to Programmers, Software Developers, and Tech Geeks in 2024

Hello guys, it's that time of the year again when you start thinking about gifts for your programmer boyfriend, husband, colleagues, or your near dear ones. Even if selecting presents or gifts were not tough, if your friend happened to be a programmer, it becomes slightly tougher. You might have heard that Programmers are aloof, nerds, and tech freaks, well, you heard it right. Programmers prefer to be alone in their own world, but they also like gifts, and you got it right; they are a nerd, so they love books, gadgets, music, and something which helps them to learn something, like a Udemy, Educative, ZTM Academy, or Pluralsight membership.

10 Projects You can Build to Learn Golang in 2024

Hello guys, If you want to learn Golang and looking for project ideas to get hands-on practice then you have come to the right place. In the past, I have shared best Golang courses for beginners to learn Golang online and in this article, I am going to share best Golang project ideas for beginners to build and learn Go programming better. From my 20 years of experience in Tech and Programming, I can safely say that there is no better way to learn then actually doing work and building projects. When you go into build mode, your mind work differently as in order to build, actual need arise. For example, when you need to download data from API then you search how you can do that in Golang and then you learn about the classes and tools and that learning remains for long time. That's why I recommend every developer to build projects.

Difference between 32-bit vs 64-bit JVM in Java?

Hello Java Programmers, if you want to learn Java virtual Machine in-depth and wondering what is the difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit JVM and which one should you use and why? then you have come to the right place. Earlier, I have shared the best JVM books and online JVM courses and in this article, I am going to talk about 32-bit vs 64-bit JVM and their pros and cons. This is also a common Java interview question for beginners and intermediate Java programmers. I have tried to answer this question to the point that's why this article is a short but informative one. You will find out what they are, how they are different, how much heap size, and the pros and cons of each of them. 

How to remove duplicate(s) from linked list in Java? Example Tutorial

Hello guys, if you are wondering how to find duplicates in a given linked list in Java then you have come to the right place. In the past, I have explained how to reverse a linked list in Java, find kth element from tail in linked list, find cycle on linked list, and in this article, I will show you how to find duplicate nodes in a given linked list. This is one of the classic linked list coding problem and I have also included this in my list of 30 common linked list problems for programmers. You can further check that list to practice more linked list programs and improve your understanding of linked lists and how to solve those problems. But, before we get into details of finding and printing duplicate nodes from the given linked list let's start with the basics.

How to convert Java 8 Stream to Array and ArrayList in Java? Example Tutorial

It's relatively easy to convert a Stream to an array in Java 8 by using the toArray() method of java.util.Stream class. By using this method you can convert any type of Stream to a corresponding array like a Stream of Strings can be converted into an array of String, or a Stream of integers can be converted into an array of Integers. The Stream.toArray() method is also overloaded, the one which doesn't take any parameter returns an Object[] which might not be very useful, particularly if you want to convert Stream of T to an array of T.

Array length vs ArrayList Size in Java [Example]

One of the confusing parts in learning Java for a beginner to understand how to find the length of array and ArrayList in Java? The main reason for the confusion is an inconsistent way of calculating the length between two. Calling size() method on arrays and length, or even length() on ArrayList is a common programming error made by beginners. The main reason for the confusion is the special handling of an array in Java.  Java native arrays have built-in length attribute but no size() method while the Java library containers, known as Collection classes like ArrayList<>, Vector<>, etc,  all have a size() method.

How to check If two Strings Array are equal in Java? Example Tutorial

Hello guys, if you are wondering how to check if two given String array are equal, I mean they contain same number of elements with same values and looking for solution then you have come to the right place. In the past, I have shared several coding questions on different data structures like linked list, binary tree, string, and even system design and today, we shall be working with arrays, Oh arrays are so pretty! And it’s very simple to learn. Having understood the concept of arrays the goal is to be able to check if two String arrays are equivalent. 

How to find Factorial in Java using Recursion and Iteration - Example Tutorial

Hello guys, if you are looking for a Java program to calculate factorial with and without recursion then you have come to the right place. Factorial is a common programming exercise that is great to learn to code and how to program. When I teach Java to new people, I often start with coding problems like prime numbers, Fibonacci series, and factorial because they help you to develop a coding sense and teach you how to write a program initially. In order to calculate factorial, you just need to know the factorial concepts from Mathematics, and rest I will explain this simple Java programming tutorial. 

Is it Possible to add static or private methods in Java interface?

Can you add a static or private method in an interface in Java? or is it possible to add a private or static method in Java interface? or can you add a non-abstract method on an interface in Java? are a couple of popular Java interview questions which often pop up during telephonic interviews. Well, prior to Java 8, it wasn't possible to add non-abstract methods in Java but nowadays you can add non-abstract static, default, and private methods in the Java interface. The static and default methods were supported as part of interface evolution in Java 8 and you can add private methods on an interface from Java 9 onwards.

What is Diamond operator in Java? Example Tutorial

Hello guys, if you are reading Java code and come across closed angle bracket with a diamond like shape and wondering what they are and what they do then you have come to the right place. They are known as Diamond operator in Java and I will explain you what they are and where should you use them in this article. The Diamond operator is a relatively new operator in Java which was first introduced in JDK 7  to improve type inference and reduce boilerplate Java coding. It is denoted with a closed angle bracket that resembles the shape of a diamond (<>) and that's why it's called the Diamond operator. If used correctly it can reduce typing and boilerplate coding in Java and result in much cleaner and readable code especially when you use Generics.  

Difference between Thread vs Process in Java? Example

Thread and Process are two closely related terms in multi-threading and the main difference between Thread and Process in Java is that Threads are part of the process. i.e. one process can spawn multiple Threads. If you run a Java program in UNIX based system e.g. Linux and if that program creates 10 Threads, it still one process and you can find that by using ps -ef | grep identifier command which is one of the most popular use of grep command in UNIX, Where identifier is UNIX the text which can be used as regular expression to find that Java process.

Difference between yield and wait method in Java? Answer

Yield vs wait in Java
The yield and wait methods in Java, though both are related to Threads,  are completely different to each other. The main difference between wait and yield in Java is that wait() is used for flow control and inter-thread communication while yield is used just to relinquish CPU to offer an opportunity to another thread for running. In this Java tutorial, we will what are differences between the wait and yield method in Java and when to use wait() and yield(). What is important for a Java programmer is not only to understand the difference between the wait() and yield() method but also to know the implications of using the yield method. 

10 points about wait(), notify() and notifyAll() in Java Thread?

If you ask me one concept in Java that is so obvious yet most misunderstood, I would say the wait(), notify(), and notifyAll() methods. They are quite obvious because they are one of the three methods of a total of 9 methods from java.lang.Object but if you ask when to use the wait(), notify() and notfiyAll() in Java, not many Java developers can answer with surety. The number will go down dramatically if you ask them to solve the producer-consumer problem using wait() and notify()

How to run Threads in an Order in Java - Thread.Join() Example

Hello Java programmers, if you need to execute multiple threads in a particular order, for example if you have three threads T1, T2 and T3 and we want to execute them in a sequence such that thread 2 starts only when first thread finishes it job and T3 starts after T2, but with multithreading in Java there is no guarantee. Threads are scheduled and allocated CPU by thread scheduler which you cannot control but you can impose such ordering by using Thread.join() method. When you start a thread its not guaranteed that which thread will start first and whether the thread started first will finish first, if your application's logic depends upon a sequence its better to do all those operation on single thread because if all code is confined to one thread it will execute in order they were written provided some JIT optimization.
