Good day! Please excuse my poor English. I'm just learning) I'm a Test Automation Engineer. But I want to be a programmer) I learned seek.co.nz and noticed that the number of vacancies of .Net projects more than JavaEE. (~169 ".Net" & ~80 "Java") I'm interested in your honest opinion. Please answer. What kind of specialists will be demanded in New Zealand in the next 3 years?
Software engineers will always be in demand. My advice would be to not focus on becoming a specialist in one particular language but become accomplished in as many as possible.
If you're studying or will be studying try to focus on the abstract concepts of what it means to develop software to solve problems and look at different languages and environments as tools to accomplish those concepts.
While it is important for a carpenter to know how to use a hammer, it is not the knowledge on hammers that makes him a carpenter.
