The Java programming language was developed in 1992 by James Gosling for Sun Microsystem. He was part of a team called the Green Team working on software for set top boxes and smart applicances. Gosling originally called the language Oak after a tree outside his window on Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park, but due to a trademark dispute it was changed to Java in 1994. The road is well known today for hosting many of Silicon Valley's most famous venture capital firms.
