Peeve of the day

14 December 2005 » Java, JavaScript, Peeves, Web development

This one has been bugging me for a while, but with all the “Java is dead” chatter lately, I feel the need to point it out.

This follows on a discussion elsewhere about how people still confuse Java with JavaScript, despite their brief historical connection.

To clear up a couple more common misconceptions about the two languages…

  • Java is not an acronym (bad: JAVA)
  • JavaScript has a capped S (bad: Javascript, javascript, JAVA SCRIPT)

Ah. Feels good to get that one off my chest.
