Twenty-five years after its initial premier, Java is still the most widely used development language in the world. It continues to be a favorite technology in the developer community because of its reliability and flexibility. And although its initial release occurred 25 years ago, Java continues to be one of the most in-demand programming languages for developing modern applications. In fact, according to VDC Research, it’s the #1 programming language in the world.

With over one million certified Java developers worldwide today, becoming a Java Developer has also proven to be an excellent career move with the role ranked second in Glassdoor's 'Best Jobs in America' list for 2020.

Java isn’t just advantageous for the individual developer but for the broader organization as well. According to IDC, with Oracle University Java training, organizations found that application developers were 29% more productive, security updates occurred 21% faster, and companies saw an 84% reduction in unplanned downtime.

As Java continues to gain popularity 25 years after its creation, we are thrilled to celebrate this significant milestone by offering an exclusive promotion to commemorate the occasion and to help any user, including developers, technical professionals, architects, students and professors gain further proficiency.

Oracle University is pleased to offer a free Java learning subscription and the Java SE 11 Developer Certification Exam for only $25 USD 90% off of the list price.

We are excited to see what can be created with Java in the next 25 years – and we are happy to kick things off with this limited time offer. Please review the full details below and take advantage of this offer today.
