    Yup. Because of last night’s beer I now crave a big cup of strong java.

    Do it! Modern Java (especially combined with Lombok and frameworks like spring) is great. There's also way less to learn in terms of language features than something like C++ or C#, so it doesn't comparatively take that long to learn the whole thing.

    It's certainly not perfect (not even close), but I'd go as far as saying it's decent. Plus there's plenty of work for decent Java Devs :-)

    Agreed. though I also feel that what you don't learn in Lang features, you make up for in configuration and convention.

    @SortOfTested Oh yes, definitely. Plus using Java in a commercial setting these days almost always means learning Spring / Spring boot + associated DI/IoC concepts that go with it, along with other commonly used libraries like lombok, so in that sense there's a lot more... (but shh, I'm trying not to put anyone off...)
