If you have solid js knowledge go with nodejs and express, it's super solid when you're making a Fullstack app and you don't want to switch back and forth with another language Express is really great and honestly the syntax doesn't change like you mentioned, once you got that down you can learn type script and start learning the framework nestjs, which is express(or fastify) but opinionated and well structured and a ton of added features to build a backend.

Alot of apis are written in go too, it's also great for making anything that involves low level networking and such (or anything network related honestly), it's simple efficient and super fast

I agree with you. The most logical and natural choice is Node.JS. @zom bibler: If you can't find good job opportunities, then switch to Java.

Thank's for your Advice!

Have you any experience about Microservice cloud based development like AWS/Azur with Express/TypeScript, that can you share with me? How available is this Stack.

Java development is here very mature and strict, without 3years knowledge of Spring i hardly have a chance xD

I have experience with AWS Lambda functions powered by Node.JS runtime ( https://docs.aws.amazon.com/lambda/latest/dg/lambda-nodejs.html ). If you combine them with API Gateway you can create Rest APIs without any additional Node.Js web framework ( https://docs.aws.amazon.com/apigateway/latest/developerguide/apigateway-rest-api.html ). I've used OSS serverless framework for deployment ( https://www.serverless.com/ ). There are AWS alternatives for deployment, e.g. AWS SAM: https://www.techmagic.co/blog/serverless-framework-vs-aws-sam/

Note: I've been Java developer for 10 years. I can confirm that Java seems more established amongst enterprises than GO/Backend Javascript.

Thanks for your Time Stanislav!

for me it is still unclear whether Java/Spring Boot in the area of Microservices are good enough not to be replaced or Node.js/TypeScript is good enough that more applications are written with it.

I don't think GO can/will replace Java or C# in enterprise environment, it will remain a niche.

I wanna deep dive into the area of Microservices in Java or Node.js, if you starting Backend right now, which you think could be stable and more popular in the next few years. Which one would your pick?

I might use Java to be on the safe side.
