When LinkedIn bought online training company Lynda.com in April 2015, a lot of people wondered what was really going on behind the scenes. A recent post from Steve Weiss, Content Manager for Business and Data Science at Linked (formerly at Lynda.com), helps put such speculation to rest: in a self-referential bow toward data mining/Big Data/Data Science, LinkedIn has been mining the heck out of its 400-million-plus user base and watching hiring decisions made under its purview to help the company target hot education topics.

In 1995, the Java programming language (produced by a talented team of programmers at Sun Microsystems, including its credited inventors James Gosling, Mike Sheridan, and Patrick Naughton) made its formal debut. That means this language is now 20 years old! I remember the beginning and have been working with and around Java ever since. Though security problems have somewhat tarnished Java's reputation, it continues to be both widely deployed and used, particularly for Web-based (or -integrated) applications. That probably explains why Java certs remain valuable even 20 years into its continuing history.
