Not a “coding for dummies” lesson

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. 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 curious yet? I invite you to open the magazine and discover the finest jewels of the Java Platform.
