I don't know about Mr. 7stud, but when I was doing a networking class,
the prof recommended that we use C++ to learn socket programming.
Students asked the obvious question, "Can we do it in Java?". So long
as you're using sockets and not some higher level libraries. Some
people were jumping with joy.

I did mine in Python.
