Is Java beating C#?
Posted on 2010-08-23
I searched on Dice.com for jobs opened today in New England mentioning C#, and there were about 40. Then I changed the search word to Java and found 110. Almost three times as many jobs were requiring Java as C#!
Am I crazy for staying with expensive Visual Studio 2010 ($11,999 for the Ultimate version)?! And I can't even find how to get the "Free Trial" the promised.
Fact is, there is no free lunch. Just when I get committed with this next project, the trial wil run out. And I will be high and dry.
No finished product, no money. No money, no Visual Studio. No Visual Studio, no finished product.
I am seriously thinking about bailing on Microsoft.
What about .NET should keep me? I don't give a hoot about Visual Basic.
I want features, performance and low cost. And a job.
I think Java can give this all to me.
Hope to hear from you...
