Discussion on: Should you pick C# over JS? Maybe.

I agree, although I havn't used it for many years. Unforunately for the foreseeable future there is no getting away from JS for the front end. The major frameworks make it easier by applying some design constraints, but in the other direction Nativescript, React Native, Quasar/Electron and Ionic now mean that JS is becoming more dominant in user platforms that are not Chrome. Unless wassm gets a good run out in 2021/2022 JS is still going to be the dominant force despite its fragmented ecosystem

No there’s not. But you can always specialize in C# and pickup JavaScript or TypeScript when you need it.

My post was more about the fact that if you’re a brand new developer you don’t have to DEFAULT to JavaScript anymore.
