JAX Magazine: Age of Discovery — Pirates of the JVM & Cheat Sheets Special

JAX Editorial Team
JVM

Cheat sheets are a godsend when you don’t know something – and that will happen no matter how well-prepared you are, which is why these cheat sheets might come in handy. And since we’re here to learn more about programming languages, why not dive deeper into the JVM universe? It will be fun, I promise.

Cheat sheets are a godsend when you don’t know something – and that will happen no matter how well-prepared you are. Programming is not a “who does better” contest and it’s just as hard as learning a new language: it takes time until you get the hang of it and master all its facets (syntax, semantics and pragmatics). It might get intimidating at times, which is why the following cheat sheets might come in handy: Java, JavaScript, Scala, Kotlin, and Dart.

And since we’re here to learn more about programming languages, why not dive deeper into the JVM universe? It will be fun, I promise.

Are you familiar with Golo, Clojure, Jython, and Fantom? If the answer is “no”, we’ll leave no stone unturned in the search for knowledge. Therefore, the Pirates of the JVM infographic (included in this JAXmagazine issue) will be accompanied by a series of articles in which we put the spotlight on the languages you may or may not know.

In our Pirates of the JVM series, you’ll discover the finest jewels (a.k.a. programming languages) of the Java platform. Come and see for yourself!

Remember: The JVM ecosystem is populated with lots of tools, frameworks, and libraries but they may or may not be explicitly portrayed. Take a closer look at the treasure map and see if you can spot your favorite instruments.

Happy hunting!
