my c# xx journey was exciting for 6M Before OC and in first year in OC. In contrast, my c++/coreJava (less for jxee) journeys have generated superior ROTI (elusive) because 1. the interview topics are stable 2. market waves steered me to stick to (not abandon) these career directions leverage? c# is lower but not bad. See separate blogpost — in terms of my expectations
- java – exceeding my expectations in churn. Found 2nd life in web2.0.
- c# – missed my expectations. Displaced in web2.0. Google CIV uses 5 anguages, without c#
- c++ – matching my expectation. slow decline. Efficiency advantage is eclipsed by java and some new languages
- py – exceeding my expectation
For all languages, there is no salary hike, no strategic value so at that level all underwhelming
