I am a frontend-engineer and thinking of switching to backend and learn some backend technologies. The company that I am working with uses Springboot-java for the backend. I am a little confused as to which tech stack should I pick. Please share your thoughts.

Yeah! You will probably like it. I'll suggest you to read Baeldung and Vlad Mihalcea blog, with these two you can learn a lot about java + spring + database.
If when you start you fell that java is not for you, you can give a try to C#-AspNet core.
Thanks .. will definitely go through the blog
Yes. Although new frameworks are coming up like Quarkus and Micronaut to name a few but Spring eco system still shines due to it's vast set of modules practically for every known problems. It is still the mostly used . Learn Spring Boot understand its pros and cons , keep an watch for the other frameworks understand what values each of them brings and you will have a strong resume.
Probably because your company uses Springboot-java so it makes sense to learn that technical stack if they require you to. Personally I would prefer to learn Node or Python.
It depends. Spring it’s widely used in large enterprise applications. I suggest you to make a short tutorial and see the benefits of using spring by yourself. Spring Boot allows you to make robots, secure, production-ready microservices in no time. Personally I love it.
Quarkus + Kotlin + JOOQ for happiness. SpringBoot + Java + Hibernate for jobs.
Thanks a lot.
That would your one of the best decision ever made! I'm biased for spring ecosystem. I've been architecting web apps using spring for about 4+ years and trust you will delve into the real shit of framework and architecture.
I would vote for that. Go on!
Yes Definitely! Obviously there is so much to learn so you might find difficult at times but practice makes everyone perfect, you know that right. You will thanks yourself if you really get into JAVA world.
Java-spring boot is a very common tech stack, so if you choose to learn it, you will have plenty of work opportunities.
I can agree with that! I have been working with Spring Boot for two years now and I think it is a little overwhelming at first (because there is just so much to do, know and learn), but as soon as you get the hang of it, it is amazing and simple to use! Combine it with libraries such as Lombok and you are good to go for backend dev 🌱😉
It think it's basicly standard if you do something Java related with the backend. Good Investition!
If your company uses it, go for it. There are many many others that use java spring boot as well.
yes. Spring Boot + Kotlin makes wonders :)
The will for sure go for it.
Ya I have been recommended kotlin by some of my friends too.
If doesn't matter what technology it is, if you have opportunity to work in real world project, go ahead and learn it. I have learned many technologies over the years and I forgot most of them. Reason? I never got chance to apply my skill in real project. Yeah, Java-Springboot is worth learning as you will get chance to work on it.
Awesome, its an awesome programming language. Try it, also I also like to suggest PHP and NodeJs. :)
