Hmm it really depends. A lot of companies around here are .Net stack. The tech industry is a lot older here than many people realize, which means a lot of the more established companies are using "older" technology. A lot are adopting things like React or Ruby on Rails to build new versions/tools within their companies. I'd say there is a healthy attraction to "buzz-wordy" technologies here. Companies are interested to try them and stay relevant, but not at the expense of the company.
There are tons of meetups for everything - React, JS, Rails, Elixir, .Net, and I think someone is starting a Golang one soon.
This. I'm employed in Springfield, Illinois and the job industry is largely .Net influenced.
