Hello dear monkeys,
this is not related to jMonkeyEngine but more a general question: Are Java Developers Still Needed? Do enterprises still look for people with Java skills?
The thing is, I recently had my last exams at school and now I’m pretty much done and want/have to apply for several universities.
During my school time we learned the basics of programming. Our teacher used Java. I really liked the language - okay it was my very first one - and wanted to learn more and more. Pretty fast I knew most even before we discussed it in class. After 1½ years of “basic” programming I discovered this place. jMonkeyEngine is the only engine I have ever worked with. I just wanted to keep programming in Java. I just wanted to stick with one language to really learn this one. Furthermore, I just enjoyed programming in this language. So much for me.
However, is Java still relevant in modern industry? I frequently hear that Java is going to be replaced by C# step by step.
Since many of you guys work as software developer or something similar (I assume so at least) I thought you could tell me some real work experience and opinions about this topic.
