Interesting post Joe. Miss you at TSS...
For serverside, distributed web and Server/GUI enterprise systems, Java is the way to go.
For small web applications/prototypes or webisite development/designing PHP, RoR, Django are the way to go.
So this days I use Java for the enterprise development and Python/Django for small web applications or websites.
Just Dump Java and move to Scala
That more or less supports my point. :)
no thanks, i'd rather have a skill set that actually pays
Well, in all fairness, Scala is horribly useful, even for Java shops - remember, it runs on the JVM and integrates well with existing Java code.
you mean useful in a horrible way?
Thats because you are an worker, i was talking about real developers i.e. we the bosses.
The 'relevance' of a programming language is determined by its (job-) market share. High vs. low. Significantly increasing vs. significantly decreasing. Blog posts are meaningless in that respect.
Java is not immortal because some immortals like me are going to sink that where you work by using SCALA, got it.
i agree with this post
Groovy and Grails have been extremely approachable and efficient to use in my experience
