Java is one of the most portable languages available. First released in 1995 by Sun Microsystems (now Oracle), Java is a general-purpose programming language that is class-based and object-oriented, with the goal of “write once, run anywhere” (WORA). Similar in many ways to C++, Java is one of the most popular programming languages for client-server web applications, with a 9 million developer base implementing the language. With the power of the Java Virtual Machine behind the platform, applications created using Java are robust, secure, and efficient. Java developers build highly distributed web applications, sophisticated desktop applications, and even powerful mobile applications.
With Java developers being some of the most sought-after talent in the industry, freelancers who are skilled in Java can make a salary of $91,000 per year, or an hourly wage of $50. While the freelance Java developer hourly rate can vary based on where they live, remote Java developers can also command different Java contractor rates based on their years or quality of experience.
