TECHNOLOGY WE USE

Java is a professional object-oriented programming language used in high school AP® Computer Science that is the most relevant, in-demand programming languages in the job market today. Also, Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere" (WORA), meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation.
Eclipse is an open source community that benefits millions of developers around the world each and every day. Eclipse's Java IDE is widely used in universities and work environments.
