A programming language despised by many veteran programmers as it allows interns to do 95% of the things they do in half the time and without their pasty complexion, decades of hard graft and countless weekends lost at the Games Workshop.

An object oriented programing language that is based on C++. It is compiled into Java bytecode, which can be run by a Java virtual machine on any computer. While Java programs are typicaly slower than their counterparts, they can run on any platform capable of runing the JVM.
Java should not be confused with Javascript, a scripting language that only shares a name and some syntax.

public static void main(String args){
