The Perks of Knowing Java

If the world was run by programmers, Java programmers would sit at the top of the power chain quite comfortably. This is essentially because Java teaches the core CS fundamentals which are the basic foundation of programming, and may be necessary to progress learning more advanced languages. You’ll find Java in almost all operating systems, in all types of devices and in both web and non-web environments which only reinforces its importance. Learning Java will not only help you master the basics of programming but will also teach you to think like a programmer, something just as crucial for your career.

Why It’s a Must to Spend a Summer Learning Digital Skills

When planning out your next summer, we’ll bet you’re not imagining spending sun-kissed days taking online courses. While ending high school should be welcomed with an exciting itinerary, it should also be full of good decisions. Knowing what to expect in the next life-changing years will help determine your future success in the competitive college world. 

Here’s why you should consider taking a summer class learning digital skills: 

Prevent Learning Loss

Yes, it’s a thing. Associating summer with trips and adventure can also mean that your brain is not necessarily being stimulated or maximizing its capacity. Also known as summer slide or brain drain, students who turn off their brains in the upcoming summer months have a more difficult time getting back to studying and retaining information when the time comes. 

Research even suggests that 2 months of reading skills and 2.5 months of math material is lost over a single summer. This occurs due to the brain’s transition from initiating analytical and critical work to almost none for quite a while causing crucial information to be lost. 

Learning a new skill over the summer can not only help you retain more information and act as a functional advantage for your brain, but it can also help create a vital working habit that you’ll surely treasure in the future. It also means that you can focus on managing your time and balance work with fun. In other words, no FOMO and an extra skill to show off in your resume.
