Hey Everyone,

My name is Mark and I work as a full-stack developer for a regional municipal government in Ontario, Canada. I've worked with many tech stacks over the years including Salesforce, Microsoft (.NET, SharePoint, Power Platform), Oracle (Java and APEX) and everything opensource (JavaScript). My passion now lies with JavaScript. I've been a consumer of great dev communities for many years and I think it's about time I start to give back.

I've been really proud of the work I've been doing both for my job and personal hobby over the past couple of years and am eager to share some things I've learned along my journey.

Welcome! What would you consider to be the better platform out of these two - .NET or Java?

Collapse
codewilliamson profile image
Mark Williamson 🇨🇦

Well that's a loaded question. Before I share my opinion I must state that by no means am I an expert or even an advanced developer in the Java or .NET realm. I worked with those technologies quite some time ago, back when Microsoft wasn't so opensource friendly. Now that they play nicer with the opensource community, things have changed a bit.

Why I liked and still like Java today is that it runs in its own virtual environment so it can run just about everywhere. The same cannot be said about .NET. There were also more jobs available for Java skilled workers when I used it. When I programmed in Java back in the day, it was with Oracle's ADF framework which at the time was very new. Developing with a framework is quite different from scratch so I definitely had a different experience with Java than others. I couldn't focus on the low-level Java constructs, instead, I had to make it all work within the framework.

My experience with .NET was quite limited to writing web services and some ASP stuff. I didn't much care for .NET because it was too tightly coupled to Microsoft and I don't like to be pigeon-holed into anything.

Thoughts?

Thread Thread
matsz profile image
Mat Sz

Thank you for the detailed answer. It's pretty interesting to see a differing opinion.

I had less exposure to Java's Web frameworks and I will take yet another look and check what's changed since your comment inspired me to give it another try.

Thread Thread
codewilliamson profile image
Mark Williamson 🇨🇦

That's great. I also plan to get back into Java one day soon. I would like to look into what kind of messaging brokers are available in the Java world. At a quick glance, it looks like many opensource brokers will support a variety of languages.

On a side note, I will say this. I do miss the strongly typed characteristic of Java and C# since I moved to JavaSCript. I think I'll have to start diving headfirst into the world of TypeScript.

Thread Thread
matsz profile image
Mat Sz

TypeScript isn't a solution for everything but I'd recommend using it for JS.

Thread Thread
codewilliamson profile image
Mark Williamson 🇨🇦

Yup, I started with plain JS because it is really easy and fast to get proof of concepts and full projects off the ground. Moving to TypeScript would be beneficial for me and my team in order to keep the project consistent between multiple developers and over time of development.

console.log(‘This is the temple of a Geek, you\’re standing on a holy place :P’);

Talking about myself seems to be a hard task but let me start this way; David Oluwabusayo is my name but folks call me Stont, my greatest strength is my curiosity & open-mindedness which has helped me over the years to acquire various skills ranging from IT and media (a learner in web Devs, a cinematographer and editor)

I believe in 3 people in this life,

  1. The people that force you to start.

  2. The people that always show up when you are about to quit.

  3. The people that always ask for update to know your are still on the track.

This 3 categories of people never get tired and complain about you.

Call me David, I am half Geek, half brilliant, half cool, half Naughty and troublesome. I have only learned a little that I don't know what I know, but if you know how I know what I know you will definitely like me. I love doing what I love and I love what am doing

Kor-Phaeron

Hi! Thanks a lot!

Well, yeah, of course I have a goal. In a year me and wife are planning to become parents and it's going to be hard to live only on my wage (don't know, lots of people talking that money can't be a good motivation, but I can't agree with that (: ).

Currently I'm learning Java and it's quite easy (I'm on the arrays part right now), but Udemy courses definitely not enough, so I get Schildt's complete reference and Head first.

I think that I will make through it, 'cause it's not the first time when I'm trying something completely different in my life. I have studied machines and equipment once I was at the university, but when I graduated I understood that this is not what I wanted to do in my life, so I grabbed some books (have to mention that I had a lot of free time then), installed CAD programs that I would like to learn and here I am - mechanical design engineer! =) Once I figured out that designing sometimes involves basic programming (often it is based on VBA), I cathced oneself that it is quite interesting and I used to think that this is the starting point!

Thanks a lot again for kind words and have a lot of good time in your life! =)

Hi Friends! I was advised to visit this place by colleague, when we discussed how toxic and dull have become our once-popular local dev-related blog-platform.

Wow, it looks cozy and nicely-designed in technical sense. Hope I'll hang on here for long time :)

I'm not exactly beginner. Or rather there are may things in which I'm novice, though I'm dev with 10+ years experience in some others. Besides I run small web-site with programming problems, CodeAbbey - and while it makes no much sense trying to promote it (it requires some work to make it brighter by nowadays standards) - but luckily I can share some observations and thoughts about various technical and social issues related with running some cute piece of crap which you call your own :)

P.S. just created my first post here about Golang t-shirt for interviews :)

Hello everyone. My name is Kyle. I found this site through codepen and I think it is pretty interesting. I have been looking for a site that has a lot of computer programming or web development news, discussions, advice, guides, etc and this seems to be a great match.

By trade, I have been an aircraft mechanic for 8 years and then moved on to instructing aircraft maintenance, inspections, and servicing courses. Though before I joined the Air Force almost over a decade ago I originally wanted to get into computer programming or game development. Now that I have explored another career I am finally chasing my original career. Mainly because maintenance is really hard on one's body XD.

Hi dev.to community!

I'm a french web developper with 5 years experience as an employee and 5 more years as a freelance before that, mostly doing front-end work these days. In 2021, I'm gonna leave Paris for the wild countryside, and I might have to look for a new job as remote.

So I figured I should start to publish tech articles to show off my skill, how I work and what I like. I've started publishing articles on Medium but I miss markdown so I thought I'd give dev.to a try.

I'm looking forward to share and learn with you!
