eGeneration, one of the leading system integration and software solutions companies in Bangladesh, organised a virtual Java Conference on Saturday, said a press release.
The conference was titled ‘eGeneration presents – Java Developers’ Conference’, co-organised by Startup Hub Nepal, Women in Tech Asia and Nigeria Feeds the World Initiative, in partnership with CTO Forum Bangladesh and Java User Group Bangladesh.
The Java conference brought together global Java experts and IT professionals from various regions.
Java has over the years blossomed into one of the top five preferred languages for software development and is currently used by more than 90 per cent of the Fortune 500 companies.
Today, there are nearly 8 million Java programmers worldwide and the number is only expected to rise.
The conference addressed this exponentially growing demand of Java Technology worldwide and aimed to connect the existing and aspiring Java professionals with the worldwide Java community and employers to help them build a career in the vast field of Java.
Shameem Ahsan, managing director of eGeneration said, ‘A country like Bangladesh with a median age of just under 30 and a high adoption of technology among our youth will never likely see a shortage of talents in the field of IT.’
‘With the encouragement from the government, proper training, and support from our community, we can nurture these talents to build winning teams and become champions in the global stage by harnessing the power of Java and transforming Bangladesh into an innovation led high-tech nation,’ he added.
Tapan Kanti Sarkar, founder and president of CTO Forum Bangladesh said, ‘Java is among the most popular programming language primarily because of its versatility, compatibility, and robust functionality. Knowing Java opens a great number of doors for the developers. This is a technology widely used by tech giants including AirBnb, Uber, Netflix and many more. Evidently, Java is likely to remain as the leading technology in the years to come.’
ANM Bazlur Rahman, founder of Java User Group Bangladesh said, ‘Sometimes developers focus just on knowledge. Having knowledge is important, but having skill is also as important. If an individual wants to pursue a career in Java, they need to possess deep knowledge and skills. Overall, my advice to the developers who want to advance their career in this domain is to skill up and develop a solid base.’
