    Used to hate java, but it's because I was forced to use an old version in uni trying to make GUIs with Swing. *barf*

    Now my current job requires me to use java and I find the recent versions to be pretty nice.

    I'm using Java 8 instead of Java 11 because my boss it's "scared" about new versions (He doesn't know what's new, and He's scared he can lost every single old project).


    Kill me.

    My experience with Java is GWT. I hate GWT, and by extension, Java. I hear it's great...but GWT...

    @netikras imagine how makes me feel that my company have 50+ apps in Java 1.7, at least we are using 11 for new apps.
