Hello guys, my first time here, and for requesting advice.

I am a JavaScript Developer MERN Stack with a focus on Frontend Development. I wanna go more to Backend Development.

Which Language has a Solid Ecosystem and not so many changes like JavaScript Frontend, quite Frankly that's freaking me out nowadays!

In my Location Germany Industries, Finance, Utilities, Insurances, Retails, and Healthcare dominate Java in the Backend. In my case Java is the logical choice BUT, XML, old codebase, JSP/JSF , boring and verbose syntax without Syntactic Sugar, test Battle, and so on make me crazy.

I have Java, Python, Golang, and Node.js/TypeScript as a choice, but because of a lack of Backend knowledge, I can't make a decision. Which Language and Ecosystem should I learn and master for a long time, my Goal is to work with a selected stack for 10+ years and I don't do Data Science only Software Engineering.

Thanks for reading and Advice! Important! !!! I see via Email somebody send me an Advice, but unfortunately i can't see/read your Advice here :( Users like: Jose Manuel Ortega or nullStack65....

Node.js

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.

Thank you Mehul, i got it, but performance and personal choice is not my Problem, i wanna work for some Companies, that used Big Applications and Microservices via Azur/AWS. Many Companies use Java as Default Language and i want to find out if Express/TypeScript or GO can replace some Part of this Applications instead Java. This happening most in US before happening in Germany, this lead might be helpful to me.

Hello guys! I would ask for your advice. Our situation is like that there will be a project to revamp workflows and introduce new services like mobile apps, machine learning, and some online services that would use cloud storage. We use JSF, JavaScript, Ajax, Spring, Oracle 12c running on Linux (VM) and providing online services to internal users and the public. But, we are not technically savvy enough to evaluate what tools should be introduced. Personally, I am evaluating whether to take this opportunity to change our practice/PM approach from Prince to Scrum/Agile (It seemed that DevOps is popular) ... Since we adopt ISO 27001 and ISO 20000, security is a crucial factor that we consider. Would you please help to recommend a list of tools and explain the reasons why you recommend them? Thanks in advance~!

I need to modernize a Java web application that runs on JSF. I am used to building websites, so Bootstrap kinda feels like "home." But when it comes to applications, I feel Bootstrap is not the right way to go. Can someone explain to me what PrimeFaces is capable of in comparison with BS?
