Is Java still relevant? Can it keep up with languages like Go and Rust? Is Java a good language for beginners? Should we consider Java for a modern project? These are some of the common questions that I have got from beginners and students, especially from the current generation who consider Java old and uncool. Everybody wants to work on a modern language with fancy features. In this talk, we are going to explore what modern Java offers in terms of language features and where it is headed. We will also explore if Java can actually keep up with other modern languages in terms of features and explore the strengths and weaknesses of Java so that you can decide for yourself if Java is still a strong contender for use in this day and age. I'll be honest with my opinions without bias and call a spade a spade when I see one, especially from the perspective of a polyglot developer.
