Anybody transitioned from PHP into the Java enterprise world? What was your experience? Did you regret it?

    I'm doing it.

    Kinda rough so far. But I think it's worth it.

    It doesn’t have to be some permanent transition. Java has its place in the development community and PHP has its place. There are advantages to both. One is more agile and one has a richer ecosystem. One big tip is to never consider learning new things to be a transition, it’s simply bettering yourself. Have respect for your roots and give each language it’s respect earned. I’ve been working in Node for years and I am now going back to PHP symphony.

    @dUcKtYpEd No matter how much I dislike your name I agree 100%. Also Java EE isn't that amazing either tbh

    @12bitfloat I’ve never considered using java for anything. I’ve heard it’s a dying concept. I’d rather work with C# any day

    @shakur Well, idk, it depends on your background and the codebase you are jumping into.

    I'm transitioning to a huge thing that is half legacy java 1.8, written in the most horrible way so except my lack of knowledge in Java stuff I have to figure out what the hell previous devs did there. A nightmare really.

    I'm still going for it because it is a way for me to get close to people from an organisation I want to work for.

    I'd say learn jdbc, learn servlets and figure the rest as you go.

    @dUcKtYpEd C# is literally just Java with more features. "dying concept" lmao

    @tekashi It has a few cool things that I wish Java had: refs, value types, default paramters
