JavaScript is not Java – A humorous comparison of JavaScript and Java.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/23

Yesterday I told:

Recently I did my very first JavaScript in HTML development. Since it was a one page experiment, I didn’t want to put it in an official repository of it’s own…

which reminded me of JavaScript is not Java – A humorous comparison of JavaScript and Java.

And still lots of uneducated people think they are the same, for instance the NBC Chicago publishes this at the start of the year:

Java Developer; What they do: Program websites using JavaScript.

Java Developer; What they do: Program websites using JavaScript.

They fixed it later but then the harm was already done (besides making a lot of fun of themselves and others making fun out of them too):

Java Developer; What they do: Write programs used by mobile devices, websites and mainframes.
