A brief reference if you’re new to CodeGym

CodeGym is a global online platform where you can learn Java programming and get the profession of Java Developer (or any other Java-related job).

For almost 10 years, we’ve been helping millions of students from the USA, India, and Europe reach their dream: master coding and become a programmer. Until recently, CodeGym was only a self-paced course. Many learners believe that studying solo, at your own speed, is the best option. But we thought: what if we could give our students more? Like mentorship, support, and the opportunity not only to get coding skills but become a job-ready professional?

And that’s where the story of CodeGym University begins. We’ve created several online courses with mentorship, cool coding projects, learning, and career support. The goal of this learning – become a programming PRO and land a job.

In this post, I’ll unveil everything you should know about the “Java Developer Profession” course, specially designed for all wannabe programmers in India. The timing seems right. This week, the first group of students begins the online training. Post Summary:Why did we decide to create a course which is 100% focused only on learners from India? Easy answer. CodeGym is here if you need us. Or I’d rather: CodeGym goes to India because the Indian IT market needs you and hundreds of thousands of Java developers now and in the future! Thinking of getting a job in IT? Let’s talk a bit about the best career opportunities and the most thoughtful way to reach a real competitive advantage in the demanding Indian IT market by learning with CodeGym.

The State of IT in India: Why It’s a Great Idea to Get Tech-related Profession

You might be familiar with a common struggle of many experienced working professionals. Feeling that your career is at a standstill. Understanding that the salary cap isn’t satisfying at all. Seeing people rush into large IT companies as programmers to do an impactful job and get an impressive paycheck. Meanwhile, you’re interested in tech and believe that you CAN become, say, a software developer. And, of course, you CAN get a job as a rookie programmer in your labor market. What could go wrong? Nothing, actually. India is the world's IT outsourcing hotspot with a 25-year history and is undoubtedly a leader in the global outsourcing segment. There are dozens of huge IT outsourcing companies here, like Infosys, with over 270 000 employers and $13 billion in revenue annually. Whooping number! But still, the primary issue for these companies is the lack of qualified specialists: software developers, QA engineers, data analysts, etc. At the same time, the startup market in India is growing, and the economy is digitalizing at full speed. In 2021 alone, India launched 14,000 new startups that raised $42 billion. They are in desperate demand of IT specialists, too. Last year, the revenue of the information technology and business process management industry in India reached the whooping 194 billion dollars, showcasing a steady annual growth despite the pandemic. The experts believe that India will become the world's leader in developing and distributing digital products in no time.

The Most Sought-after Professions in Indian IT: Consider Java Developer as the Best Option

According to reports, the IT services industry in India created over 500,000 new jobs in 2021/22. With the rapidly growing outsourcing & startup market, Metaverse, Web3, and the upcoming Industry 4.0, the demand for IT professionals, especially – data engineers and programmers – is high. The increasing number of job openings in tech leaves the door open for newbie developers – university graduates and those who decided to gain a new profession via boot camps and online course programs. According to the Naukri report, Java shares the top position with Python, one of the most in-demand languages for many years. The salary prospects of Java & Python developers are almost even: making up to 20+ LPA as an experienced developer is possible. But the demand for Java developers is almost twice as high as for Python developers. You can quickly check the number of job openings for Java and Python specialists and see the difference. Java programmer has lots of options. Server-side applications for finance and big data need Java. Android programs, web applications, embedded systems, and scientific applications need Java, too. Anyways, it’s easier to tell where you don’t need Java than the opposite!
