    You know you don't hear much from C# fans, but I gotta say it's a damned good language. I've been using it for almot two years now for work and I fucking hated it at first, but mainly because I had to use Windows and Visual Studio and the unpopped popcorn kernel that is Nuget. The language itself though is pretty fucking legit. I would probably be very happy using .NET Core on Linux in a future job.

    @hashit So I am curious about your take on this: What ISN'T web dev? So in my current job I am a 'Web Developer' that develops full stack applications. in our engineering department, on the other hand, we have Software Engineers that do the much more important work of ... developing full stack applications. Obviously when you get down to hardware you are not doing web dev, and I am considering going towards robotics myself because it sounds more interesting than making interactive pixels, but what other dev roles would you say aren't web dev at least a litte?

    @catadoxa I do OS, drivers, runtimes, bindings for compiler generated code, I'm pretty sure I'm not a single percent web dev ;)

    I am basically web Dev. But as I do not work yet with Dev, what do you, guys, recommend to be easiest to get a job that pays well ( I have my rent, wife and a daughter)?

    I am only used to web, but I can learn other stuff. :)
