Well, I think person with any JVM experience (Java/Scala/Groovy/…) probably is better choice (at least in short perspective)Agreed - short term perspective could be a consideration but these are multiple year projects so over the life time, it would be negated
I expect that it’s some JVM applicationSpot on
your client will need to invest in them taking time and money.I have been taking the approach that they skill up before the client - obviously that means no working experience, just exercises, courses etc… because it isn’t right to get people to pay totally for this
If all you know is JS then a jump to Kotlin is going to be massive - it’s not just about syntax at that point, it’s a different paradigm and a completely different ecosystem.Absolutely a great point. I feel the JS to Kotlin syntax is close - but the ecosystem is massively different. The paradigm though are similar, npm to Gradle for example. And even more so if you doing node.
Backend jobs these day typically require some kind of cloud knowledge as well. Does your average JS developer have any idea about how backend systems are built/deployed/monitored? C# peeps are likely to be experienced in Azure, whereas your typical JVM shop would be AWS or Google.Don’t really agree with your specifics but they are good considerations and great examples of the different ecosystem issues. Around the specifics a lot ofmodern front end web dev is node servers in docker images + k8s deployed to the cloud. Lots of metrics through things like new relic for example. Even language to cloud is not that clear especially when you in docker images. And haven’t touched on people using things like Lambdas written in JS 🙂
here’s a piece on learning a new languageMagnificent - thank you. Totally referencing that tweet of yours too.
