Top Java Developer related questions

Apart from knowing the basics, the Java developer you hire must have good problem-solving and communication skills. As with most programming languages, Java updates and constantly evolves, so your developer should be aware of these changes and adjust accordingly. When appropriate, a good Java developer must also be a team player and communicate their needs to other workers to solve technical problems together.

Depending on the complexity and scope of your project, this can take anywhere from a few hours to a few years. The larger and more complex your app or program, the more time it will take. Sometimes development may take even longer than first expected, especially if you’re developing a video game for PC or consoles. As with any programming language, using Java can have bugs, security issues and updates as you go along to impact your timetable further.  

Yes, but only if your needs call for their level of expertise, and you can pay their rate. Full-stack developers can do both back-end and front-end programming; they typically command a higher salary or hourly rate. Full-stack developers are also few and in high demand, and their rates go up as they gain more experience or add to their already extensive skill set.  

Yes, but that depends on several factors. You should have prior training and experience in Java, have a passion for the programming language, and commit to doing this full-time. If your project is relatively small and simple compared to other software or apps, you can do this yourself. But if your project is large and very complex, the development task may exceed your capacity and skills. Why not hire one or several capable Taskers instead?

With new technologies changing our digital lifestyle, there has been more demand for more Java skills. There’s high demand for Java programming in Amazon Web Services, Python, Blockchain, AI and machine learning, iOS and Android. As a business owner, this means that you have more high-tech tools available to create more products or access new ways to deliver your products or services. As a developer, you have to refresh your coding skills to stay competitive.

In some ways, yes. Python is a coding language that is easier to learn if you’re an absolute beginner when it comes to coding. While some developers may argue that Python requires less coding and can work even with bugs, Java is the more trusted and more established programming language. Huge industries like finance, gaming, Android apps, cryptocurrencies and the Internet of Things (IoT) all run on Java more than Python.

What do Java Developer services include?

Java developer services include all the activities necessary to create, test and maintain digital products like games, software or apps with the Java programming language.  

This can consist of planning and creating the products for the right platforms, doing the back-end and front-end development, testing for bugs and security issues, then editing the code if necessary before finally launching the product.  

Product planning 

Does your business need an Android app? Do you want to expand your product line of software? Your Java developer can discuss the possible products they can create for you with this back-end programming language. They can work with you and your marketing team to create the software or apps that can best express your company’s brand image and vision and help reach your marketing objectives. 

Your Tasker can help determine your product’s features and map out the development process by following your timetable and keeping within your budget. They can help you set deadlines and streamline the approval process. 

Don’t forget that you can hire more people to bolster your marketing staff if necessary. As they discuss the possibilities, your Java developer can suggest which features and functions to create for the appropriate products. 

Java programming 

Once your team has decided which apps or software are needed to achieve your company objectives, your Tasker can proceed with Java programming. They can write the code that serves as the foundation for your game, software or app within the agreed timetable and work within your budget. Your Java developer can write the program or app to work on iOS, Android, web browsers or any combination of these platforms as appropriate. 

Front-end and back-end web design

Your Java developer may need the help of someone who can do graphic design for your program or app’s UI or UX. Even the simplest of apps need a good look, must be easily navigable and load quickly. 

While some Java developer Taskers can do both the front-end and back-end for Java web development, you may want to hire additional designers to evenly distribute the workload among other workers and ensure your project stays on schedule.  

Product testing

After much of the foundational programming is completed, your Java developer can test the program or app in an offline test environment. They can do any edits needed to fix the code, such as possible exploits that hackers can use as backdoors to manipulate the app or software when it goes live. Your Java developer may repeat this process until you are confident that your product is ready for launch on your platform of choice. 

Support & Maintenance

Your app or software may still need support after it goes live. Your Tasker may have to do functional updates, updates to the OS, bug fixing, security updates, or fix cybersecurity issues. Some Taskers can stay on as part of your maintenance team, or you can hire their services as any of these technical issues arise.
